My longest one without any long stops was Noida to Pokhran, via getting lost at so many places, over this Xmas weekend. On reaching Khuri, my trip meter (which I had reset while leaving from Noida) showed 807 Km. The stops we made were for taking leaks and procuring beers. Else have done many 500Km+ trips to the hills of HP/UA.

I drove alone from Hyderabad to Mumbai approx 750 kms in my modified tata sierra no pee break even just consumed 2 red-bulls and one pack of Parle G biscuits. I burned two transistors on my pioneer amplifier in the process and was dehydrated and hungry also had a sever headache because of the FFE.

Started at 11 am from hbad and was home in Mumbai at around 11 am thanks to last 100 odd kms on mumbai pune express way.

I did it because I had told parents I am going to Mahabaleshwar for weekend and drove to hbad to meet my GF I was stupid. This was back in Feb 2003.

Couple of months back did Mumbai - Rajkot without breaking the journey. Not even for a leak It took me roughly 11 hours to complete the journey.

Also in New Zealand did a 500 odd kms journey without a halt, that was between Rotorua - Wellington. It took me around 5 hours to complete the drive.
