The longest drive which I have done in a single day is from Ahmedabad to Kanpur - 1100 kms in my Ford Fiesta. We started at 5.00 am and reached Kanpur at midnight. The drive was in the monsoon season with rains across all the places we passed by.

I am looking for to a drive to Leh next summer

My longest drive has to be Delhi to Vadodara in sept, 2012. A total of 998 kms according to the car's ODO reading.

The next longest trip would be Bangalore to Goa back in 2007. A total of around 800 kms IIRC.

The longest drive as a passenger was NYC to Toronto covering a total distance of around 500 miles or 800 kms approx.

We started off from Delhi at 4:30 in the morning , reached Jaipur at 10:00 (The traffic at Manesar was awful, had a full one hour jam at around 5:30 in the morning ). Completed the work in Jaipur and left for Delhi at 11:15 . Reached home at 5 PM (Encountered the same serpentine jam again) . The car was a Chevy Beat and the max I touched was 120/hour . Total distance : 569 kms.

We Have travelled many times from Toronto to Orlando, full trip approx 5000km and once from Toronto to Branson Missouri round trip + area of 3500Km. But then driving on those road IS the holiday for me, rather than the destination in itself.

The longest Drive I have done so far is Pune to Vadodara approx 570 Kms during Diwali, in 10 hours, which included a break for 2 hours To meet friends enroute. The companions were My wife and trusty Skoda Fabia

Next planned journey is Pune - Agra, with the same companions !! Plan to complete this in a couple of days, cause I plan to go via Vadodara again as my family stays there.

Have done Pune-Goa thrice, and each time the journey took approximately 7 Hours including break times.
And once done Pune - Tarkarli in 7 hours distance was quite similar to Goa including break times again.
