    If I want to go to Darlingtonia State Park, Oregon from my house It will take approximatly 54 hours 43 minutes which will cover about 3045.5 miles. I will also get to visit all the major cities. Hemm hemm mapquest is so funny. Any one else have destinations they have been that would be incredibly long to drive?

    Meh

    Been there, done that. It's the drive across Wyoming and Nebraska that sucks the marrow from your bones, regardless of the total length of the drive. Or possibly Western Utah and Nevada. Man, come to think of it, there's no way to get from Salt Lake to anywhere without going through lots of nothing. Not lovely natural nothing. Just nothing.

    Nebraska seems to be the armpit of America, at least in Hollywood's view.

    I thought New Jersey was considered the armpit of the nation.

    Could be worse... you could be in Iowa. Hawkeye Pierce referred to Iowa as "the land of eternal nothingness".

    Dude, you used Mapquest?! 9 times out of 10 there will be one instruction that will be errant - and it will be guaranteed to get you lost.

    No I am not really going to drive. It would cost more in gas and hotels via car (and back pain) then it would be to fly. But I will be going to the park. I am so excited about this trip. Now if only I could figure out how to scrape together about $500 in a week for all the plants I want to buy [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]
    Oh well I suppose I can only buy what I can carry. I think this is ging to require a lot of tough thinking at Peters.

    LOL! Mapquest says my drive to work should be 35 minutes. It's actually 90-120!

    mapquest will usually give you a good laugh, it told me it takes 5.25 hours to get to Billings from home. doing 70-78mph it takes about 4 hours 15 minutes ive made it in 3 and a half though......played Nascar down the interstate. i hate driving east west across North Dakota, that is almost the most boring drive there is. the absolute worst drive is north/south through eastern Wyoming on my way to Denver/Colorado Springs there is NOTHING to look at. i love driving across Montana, almost always something to look at. there are some boring stretches up in my corner but most of it is great to drive through
