Total maximum distance travelled by me as sole driver on a trip is approx 2500kms (BLR - PUNE - LONAVALA - MUMBAI - GANPATIPULE - BLR).
And as for max distance travelled in a single day is approx 860kms (BLR - PUNE) after 14+ hrs of non-stop driving. Just loved the drive!
And what a trip it was?! Ahhh!!

My solo ride was trichur-calicut-kasargod-mangalore -udupi/manipal,around 450km on kinetic honda!! when i was doing my bbm there.Last year i did coimbatore-calicut-kasargod-mangalore-goa and back on my vista.Approx 1500km,stayed one night in goa and it took 4days to complete the trip.
Now planning to go for the drive of my life time!! coimbatore-manali-leh and return.apprx 5k odd km i have to drive and it may take 20 to 25 days n i have to do it before november 15th otherwise my current tools(i10 or linea) can't get through the Mighty passes.And more over i have to get this solo ride's approval from my wifey too which i think is the toughest part than the route.Regards guys and if i do then i will try to post a live thread for the dream trip.

My Solo long drive was from Bangalore to Trichy and back. I guess 700 odd kms. With one puncture and tyre change, Massive jam at Hosur, I was dead tired by the end of it.

I work as a Sales Consulting Engineer and my job requires me to travel. One of the best solo i have ever done was in the last year. It was in the U.S, working in Chicago. Had to go to Florida. Landed in Jacksonville, hired a car (Nissan Maxima) it was a week long trip and had to visit 5 clients a day. Here is the route I took.
Jacksonville - Gainesville - Ocala - Daytona Beach - Orlando - Clearwater - Tampa - Sarasota - Naples - Westpalm beach - Fort Lauderdale - Miami. Flew out from Miami!
Total distance covered - 1200 Miles
Total Time - 5 Days
Did I enjoy it - Hell yeah! There is nothing better than a good car and awesome roads!

I drive solo from Hyderabad to warangal or kamareddy (nizamabad district) atleast twice a month and music is my only companion.
I prefer eating in Dhabas as there are some quite good ones in the route.
