550 miles, at 60 mph, but all on interstate. However, we have put 100k on our AS in 5 years, so we don't sit much.

650 miles in one day for a total of 2,200 miles in four days. It wasn't a vacation!

From my old house between Wimberley and Driftwood, TX it was 1,004 miles to the Florida welcome center on I10. I've gone a little ways beyond that several times, but I was traveling on business. I usually took it easier going home. That was pulling the Trade Wind back in the lat 80s. Usually left late in the day and drove overnight.

If I were you, I would plan on several stops on your trip to Key West. Enjoy the trip.

1100 miles. but I don't recommend it for anyone. It was an emergency trailer delivery, and not in accordance with the DOT regs. Only left the truck long enough to hit the bathroom while coffee water was heating.

When on vacation I like 200 mile days if anything interesting, but generally do 6 to 700 when trying to get there.

I normally do not tow much over 60 mph

I guess someone has to be the lightweight here.

Biggest days 400-500 miles-and those days are usually wide open country, not urban or suburban.

Typical days 200-300 miles.

I've noticed decrease in driving stamina since I was in my 20s. I drove 1000 mile days in a car when I was young.

Depends on who's in the rig with me...

The boys and I: 600 miles in 10 hours, easy.
The girls and I: 400 miles in 14+ brutal, exhausting hours.

859 Miles ... Cordelle, Ga. to Ann Arbor, Mi. All x-way. First part was through the remnants of the ice storm that hit Atlanta this past February. That part was WAY too exciting!

500 miles is a much better day.
