Ok, just for the heck of it, what is the longest trip you've taken in your car...and how did it go...has to be an LH model...

For me, 2300 miles...Ohio to Carlisle, PA, to Maryland, to Virginia, then several parts of North Carolina, than back to Ohio...she ran flawlessly!!

Work to home feels like the longest, but I guess home to Whitby to Carlisle via very scenic route and back home. About 1200 miles in 3 days.

Honestly, I think the trip to Danisle in March is the farthest I've gone in the Trep!. Lame!

I put about 15,000 highway miles on my '89 olds Ciera driving back and forth from Saginaw MI, to Houghton MI (Michigan Tech University) in the 4 years I went there.

I guess I gotta take a road trip! Sad thing is, if and when we do go somewhere, it will most likely be in the Pacifica.

Went from my place in close to North Bay Ontario to Whitby and then to Shawn's in Chatham, that's like 700-800km if not more. Then did some cruising from Chatham to London then St-Thomas then Chatham. Few days after that it was return trip from Chatham to Whitby then home. Well over 2000km in a bit more than a weekend.

Danaslile will be the longest trip at over 1000km one way.

The ohio meet III is gonna be the biggest trip for me. Its only 187 miles from here and then back. Never really needed to go that far in my car. Indy is about as far as it has been and it ran great the whole way there and back numerous times. Its about an 90 mile round trip.

I drove my 2001 Intrepid SE from upstate NY to Houston Texas back in 2003. Took 36 hours (about 1630 miles) each way. I ended up putting 4500 miles on the Trep in a week! Ran flawless and I was getting up to 31 mpg! Ah, the good old days. The price of gas was average $1.30 per gallon at the time.

The longest trip I have gone (With me driving) on with Trep is from Charleston, SC to Cleveland, OH 720 miles, but is has made that same trip and back about once a year for the past 14 years. That is how 20,000 miles of the 243,000 that is on there now got there. Also went back and forth from Charleston, SC to Norfolk, VA once a month for about 3 years. It has been to Charleston, SC to Hickory, NC a few times. Ya this car has seen a lot of Interstate travel.

I just added it up and I figured over the last 14 years this car has seen roughly 28,520 miles of traveling.
