We made the Athens, GA to Destin, Fl run 3 or 4 times in the late 80's. Only 750 miles, but with 2 Chesapeakes and a couple of bags, still a long trip in a CJ without A/C. They were good times.

Jacksonville, FL to Milledgeville, Ga(not too far outside Macon). Bout 5 hour trip two days after I bought my previous YJ.
5 hours of no radio, no A/C, super swampers drone, drizzling the whole time and the windshield wipers didn't work. It was fun, I'd do it all over again too. lol

SJC-ATL, round trip, six days.
Return trip with a 2,500# weight penalty (box trailer,) that I hardly knew was there.
SJC-IND is common - I have family there. Probably start doing SJC-ATL again as well, since my kid sister is now in Georgia.
