With a regular service my longest bus ride was Huesca-Barcelona, only 266 km. But I've done longer ones:
From Huesca to near Cartagena, 700 km. By the time I did it the A-23 wasn't fully opened, and traffic still went through Daroca which is 10 km longer.
And from Huesca to Pisa, 1280 km in one shot overnight (Well, with some rest stops, with still). That was the start of the high school trip to Italy.

My maximum distance covered with bus was 36 h, 2300 km trip Ljubljana - Stockholm in 1980ies.

And the slowest was in west Tanzaniato reach coast of lake Malawi (gorgeous!), 160 km in 9,5 hours (this includes pushing vehicle out of the mud - 2 times)

Helsingborg(S)-Blanes(E) around 2168km

My longest trip with bus. I was a little kid back then (1999), and my family decided to take a vacation in near Barcelona with http://buss-special.se/. I loved this trip, and will never forget it.

Why did you go from Tanzania to Lake Malawi? The border between Tanzania and Malawi lies on the lake's shore, so none of the lake belongs to Tanzania.

In fact they are saying that going to the left you can arrive to the G.Calamita Street (street which is about 100m long only) but with a tunnel that do not allow more than 3m high vehicles.

Ok in that way.

The tunnel is in the centre of this image

https://maps.google.es/maps?q=isabel...ag%C3%B3n&z=20



buuuuuuuuuuutttttt

ALL, ALL, ALL buildings that are located between Isabel la catolica avenue, the park and river in the east, and G. Calamita in the south... and a two buildings besides P.Arrupe street is a huge hospital, the main in the city.

The tunnel pointed in the signal with a 3m high limit for vehicles was designed to arrive faster for ambulances and any other vehicle to the urgencies service with no traffic light. It is a two lane tunnel.

They changed of situation the sign but the same one. In the bottom (not clear to be read in google street) now it is written something like "medical urgencies" in black characters over yellow

But very small characters according to the signal.

Instead of writting the sign of a Hospital, a right arrow and a signal of 3m high limit... we have that signal


(I studied in a school that it is very close to that signal and I can assure that it has not being changed for more than 25 years!!!!!)



So I said... I accepted the bet and make higher!

Is it possible to signal worst a huge hospital?

I live by Ljubljanica, so maybe there're more here. I have something against mosquitoes, but I don't use it too much, god knows what it emits.

I'd say it's not impossible. They tested it with Top Gear and the car remains functional after a lightning strike. That's why cars are very safe during thunderstorms.

Yeah, Faraday cage. However I think your eardrums would explode, the sound felt too low.
