It's now 1.9 km . Still nothing compared to that you have driven. But once I made 1300 km in 24 hours (Huesca-Pisa, and then Lucca) as passenger, of course.

Ft. Sill, OK to Kansas Highway K-42 (Wichita - Sawyer)
-> Colorado Highway 42 (Lafayette, Louisville)
-> Utah Route 42 (Park Valley, an old alignment of US-30S)
-> Oregon Route 42 (Green - Coos Bay)
-> California Former Route 42 (Inglewood - Norwalk)
-> New Mexico State Road 42 (Willard - Corona)

that's more than 1700km a day

IMO one should only drive 900km per day. for journeys longer than that, you need a codriver. I've done 1350km in 1 day 3 times now, but you are tired at the end.

I wasn't talking about length. I couldn't belive that something as the Quadragintaduology Expedition exists.

Rented a car and drove to Montréal earlier this year, but instead of driving straight back to New York at my holiday's end, I wanted to walk across the Québec Bridge...
A-20 to Québec, A-55 to I-91 (for Derby Line novelty), I-95, I-278, and finally the FDR Drive to 43 Street in Manhattan. Distance was somewhere around 702 miles / 1,130 km.

I stand corrected, my memory failed me...closer to 4500 miles (7250 km). Here is the map:


This map on Google

So, about 900 miles a day. And yes, Quadragintaduology does exist There have been 50 trips so far (a few that were not driven).
