Dallas --> Phoenix, AZ --> Las Vegas, NV --> SFO, CA --> LA, CA --> flew to Denver, CO --> flew to Boise, ID --> flew to Minneapolis, MN --> Madison, WI --> Indianapolis, IN --> Bloomington, IL --> Madison, WI --> Milwaukee, WI --> Chicago, IL --> Grand Rapids, MI --> Akron, OH --> Columbus, OH --> Pittsburgh, PA --> Philadelphia, PA --> Newport, NJ --> New York, NY --> Boston, MA --> Cape Elizabeth, Maine --> Boston, MA --> Charlotte, NC --> Atlanta, GA --> Jacksonville, FL --> Orlando, FL --> Tampa, FL.

The total trip took about 5 weeks. Planning another one soon with more cities added to the list the next time around.

Today, I just broke my previous record !
I drove 550 KM from Madanapalle [ Southernmost AP to Hyderabad] which took my Swift a full 8 Hour drive with a one hour break for lunch at Kurnool and some little pitstops for various other reasons.
The route I took was Madanapalle - Ananthapuramu - Kurnool - Hyderabad [ Madanapalle to Ananthapuram was a 2 lane with decent traffic but the remaining part was a cake walk ! ]
This is succeeded by Hyderabad to Kadapa which is 420 KM for which I took 6.5 hours that was made 2 days ago !

Couple of long drives I can think of :

Madurai --> Rameswaram --> Madurai --> Bangalore - About 780KM in Maruti Alto LXI - 4 passengers. Took about 11 hours with food/bio breaks in between

Bangalore --> Coimbatore --> Bangalore ; Total roundtrip distance of about 700+ km with few hours break in Coimbatore.

Thanks and now I did !
I am not sure if I have posted that on the thread you meant. Do post links [ since I didn't find any partcular thread relating to Madanapalle- Hyderabad] here so that I can see if there can be anything I could contribute.

Our longest drive was from Surat to Palakkad, a total distance of 1694 km covered in under 2 days.

Day 1 - Departed Surat at 3:30 AM and reached Hubli around 6 PM after several halts. We could have stretched it a bit more perhaps till Davangere but for the room we had booked at Hubli for the overnight halt.

Day 2 - Departed Hubli at 5:30 AM and reached Palakkad at 7:30 PM.

That trip really was some experience! Just 2 of us and we loved every bit of it.

I used to be doing quite a bit of Pune-Bangalore-Pune over the past 4 months. Over the Christmas/New year week end I did this very long drive, over 5 days.

Pune-Mumbai-Ahmedabad-Jodhpur - Jaisalmer - Sam - Jaisalmer - Udaipur - Amedabad - Mumbai - Pune - a total of 3200 = KM's, in my Safari. I was the lone driver with my family and music for company. Loved the roads, the winters and the drive.
