London to Copenhagen, three days driving each way.
Passed the time by stopping off and sampling opportunities to eat and explore in five different European countries; France, Belgium, Holland, Germany, Denmark.

It was a great fun experience; it's not often you are required to say thank you in four different languages in one day!

Mmm I'm not sure - last year I went from Nashville to Chicago with my SPN friend Sonya, that was about 500 miles and took us around 12 hours in the end, with 2 or 3 pit stops. Of course that trip passing the time was easy because we'd never met before so had lots of catching up to do. And mostly we talked about Supernatural and looked at all the changes in scenery as Sonya had never been far out of Tennessee before, and I'd never been to the States.

Otherwise, the farthest I'd have been on a road trip would have to be with my parents when I was 16. We drove from Liverpool to Florence in Italy, it took about 2-3 days and we went via Cologne, Austria, Venice, Padua, Verona and Assisi, camping on the way down. Must have been about 1500 miles one way - as I recall we passed the time in the car by my parents arguing a lot and me reading my books to block it out!!

They both sound like fabulous journeys. I did the Copenhagen trip with my husband, and we tried to do as much of the trip as possible off of the main drags so that we could make it a fun, scenic journey, so I had plenty of sightseeing to keep me occupied when we weren't yakking or debating where to stop for our next snack.

I'm afraid reading to pass the time in the car is completely out for me ... I'm a grown adult and I still get carsick. How embarrassing is that? :(

One of the presenters on Blue Peter gets horribly car sick and they filmed the poor bugger trying out all these patented methods to prevent it and failing...some made it a little bit better but nothing stopped it altogether. Guess it's just one of those things!

One of those things indeed.
I wouldn't be very good spending 8 hours a day in the Impala -
Dean would soon get fed up with me :)

teehee, *snort*
You're gonna give me ideas.
Somehow though, I can't see Dean being all that sympathetic to someone puking all over his precious car!

Sadly, that would be the deal breaker I'm afraid. Everyone knows his baby comes before everything except Sammy. *sigh*
