My longest drive was from Pune to my native place Tanuku (in AP) about 1010 kms. did a break journey in Hyderabad both ways.

Route: Pune - Solapur - Hyderabad - Vijaywada - Tanuku


A cop stopped us in Hyderabad due to MH number showed him the toll receipts still he was not convinced (wanted money off course) did some harsh talking (Laato ke bhut baato se nahi maante) and we were allowed to leave. Whats pathetic is the attitude of our policemen on duty, also he didnt even know the difference between a yellow board vehicle and a private vehicle (was demanding the tax receipts at the borders).

My max km in a day has been BLR-MYS-HASSAN-MYS-BLR which is 520km.
However, my longest continous drive without a break has been BLR-MYS-COORG which is about 235km.

December 2010, I did Chandigarh-Kanyakumari-Chandigarh, solo, in my beloved Esteem VX in 8 days flat.
I was back home on the evening of the eighth day. I would have reached back on the seventh day itself, but severe bad weather and fog held me up in Agra. Driving alone through our Motherland India was kind of a spiritual experience.
Next in line is to drive across the US. That too, solo!

Well my longest drive till date was 2 weeks back, I drove from Delhi to Nanital around 300kms with one breakfast break in between, completed in 6 hours including break and 30 mins long jam at bilaspur.

Considering, I started driving in Feb and with just 3500kms experience behind the wheel. I really enjoyed the drive overall.

Looking forward to drive down to jammu from Delhi ( 600kms ) in late July or August.

Cheers
Sameer
