    Longest continuous drive

    What is your longest road trip without sleeping? I've developed a reputation for it and am now the designated driver for every occasion.. I'm trying to find out the world record, which I imagine would be much longer than my efforts.

    Port Elizabeth to Welkom and back (VW Golf) - 1640km
    Port Elizabeth to Midrand (VW Golf) - 1250km
    Riom/Clermont Ferrand (France) to Bath (UK) (Nissan Micra ) - 691 miles/1150km
    Tableview to Port Elizabeth (VW Golf) - 815km

    Dad once got driven by his mate from Calais to Athens, which is about 2000km. No idea how he managed it.

    Longest I've done myself is Wollongong to Lorne, which is about 960 according to Google maps. A friend of mine did Cairns to Newcastle, which is about 2300. By the end of it he was basically insane.
    The one, the only CW Black
    Code:
    47.3 W Coppinger to Heads 
        Smacked the ball straight into the groin of Iwuajoku who has fallen over, 
        miraculously with the ball still caught in his scrotal area! Out!

    Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.
    RIP Craigos
