Driving by myself:
Hartford to Montreal: 550km
Hartford to Ocean City, MD: 590km

Obviously stopped in all them...and in the case of Montreal, it was a 1 hour border crossing pit stop!

With others driving:
Hartford to Minneapolis: 2160km
Columbus to Boston: 1290km
Hartford to Toronto: 820km

In the case of Toronto, well I have made that trip about 10 times.

I've had my license for less than a year (got the student's permit at age 16, but the independent license only at age 20), so not much driving by myself yet

Greatest distance with another driver (my dad and I, about 50% each, also my first time driving on a motorway, which ironically was not in Canada):
~800km, Toronto -> New York City (trip well documented on this forum)

By myself:
~140km, Toronto -> Niagara Falls

By bus (very long ago):
~450km, Nazareth Illit -> Eilat (Israel)

Riga-Magdeburg - all the time driving, just a few short stops. 26 hours, without eating, sleeping. 1400 km, mostly bad and slow roads. On the next day the remaining drive from Magdeburg to Brussels seemed just like a joke.
Never would like to repeat this.

Guys, don't you forget to rest/sleep? Remember to take 45 minutes rest after 4,5 hours of driving.

I haven't driven that long distances yet. Longest distance untill now would be around 300 km's, I guess. At least, as a driver.
