Made a trip from Portland to Sonora California and back about 2 weeks ago, 670 Miles, about 1078 Kilometers one way via I-5,US 50, CA 16 & 49 only saw maybe 2 Oregon State and California State Troopers each the entire trip. Can't remember If I saw any near Shasta. Was amazed at the number of cars with Oregon plates between the Oregon Border and Sacramento, I swear they almost outnumbered Californians.

I thought a little insanity is mandatory to be a member of this forum.

If you start at 1am you will reach your destiny at 8pm which is fine.

Last week I drove 600 km and I felt like 700 would be the maximum I could do in one day. How can you all drive that much?

It depends on which routes you take... If you have all motorway, without much congestion, most people can drive 12 - 13 hours on a day, thus covering 1200 - 1300 km.

It's not obvious on my trips to have the same distance back I usually take another route back.

Yeah, but there's not a lot of choice .

The route through Scandinavia is way more expensive (ferry to Stockholm, bridge toll in Denmark...). On this route there was only €12 toll in total in Poland.

Before August this year, the longest drive I did was from Barnet, UK to Cologne in Germany via Maastricht in April. Then that trip was upsurped this summer by a torturous drive from Emerald Isle, NC to Rye, NY which took us over 16 hours!

In one day I have been driving
Linköping-Varberg 340 km
Tallinn-St Petersburg 360km 2-3 hours of customs
Helsinki-St Petersburg 390km 4-5 hours of customs
Stockholm-Köge (DK) 640km

Nothing to brag about, but I really want to get back on the road again. This summer I will try to drive longer if my car won't break down.

America must be the ultimate driving country -Big comfortable vehicles, straight wide roads, steady pace of traffic and lots of cheap motels and BurgerKings. You could probably take nap while driving with your pinky.

Driving long distance in Sweden is very tiring, here you would definately not do 600 miles/960km for 9,5 hours, maybe 2 drivers could do it.

960km thats the eqvivalent for Sundsvall-Malmö
