New Bern, NC to Burlington, CO. I don't know how many hours but it was well over 1600 miles. I fell asleep with the cruise on, when I woke up I got off at the next exit into a parking lot and went to sleep. My wife and two kids were in the truck and I could've killed all of us. Ever since, I limit my driving times. I never told them about it either.

Ditto. I was "good" for about 24 hours plowing. One 5 hour energy after about 20 hours in the truck would get me through the whole day. If I took a second one, all it would do is put me on edge and in a bad mood...

Plowing was fun, but the 2-day re-coup after a 24 hour shift was NOT fun.

I miss plowing snow... Power sliding in 4wd rocks

Actual driving I have done about 1400 miles/26 hours with stops. THAT SUCKED!

That is a long, long haul. Texas never seems to end. I've driven that route a few times: loved the Bucee's between San Antonio and Houston.

~ 20 hours(Naples FL-->Evansville IN, It takes forever to drive to the southern tip of FL) I was DONE for when I got home... Full Disclosure, I had my wife and 2 boys with me to assist in wakefullness, My wife also drove for about an hour, although I couldn't sleep while she was driving, We were also in her vehicle which has a much smoother ride than the stang... about 15 hours in(~Chatanooga TN), I could feel my eyes starting to get itchy, and heavy, wife drove from Nashville to Fort Campbell KY as I was worried about falling asleep..... Drive Careful...

Some people lead the way blindly, Others follow with 20/20 vision

Over 14 hours driving from Tampa to Houston. With the time change it is not too bad but going against the time change makes a difference. I've done this a few times but I'm never afraid to stop with fill ups and rest my eyes for 30 minutes if need be.
