longest jeep trip?

What's the longest trip you've taken in your jeep? Whether it was driving cross country for the rubicon trail, or moving to a new state for work!

Would love to, but unfortunately I'm at work on mobile. Hopefully I can when I get home.

Done quite a bit of traveling (from NJ) with the 89 YJ.

Went through Colorado, Utah, AZ, New Mexico and back (5600 miles), Tenn (2700 miles), multiple trips to New England and northern Vermont, as well as Jeep Jamborees in PA, MI and Vt. More on the horizon.

(I did run the GC on another VT trip, but that was more a matter of room to bring family members and the dog. Otherwise I'd take the YJ)

Bi weekly trips from North Louisiana to Augusta, GA for months. ( dated a hottie over there for a while.) 750 miles each way......made the trips in 10 hours. And before you ask, yeah, she was worth it. Would have married her if she would have been willing to move to Texas or LA. She wasnt...but we still keep in touch from time to time.

When I first got the YJ, it was a total POS and we drove 58 miles on an interstate into a head wind.

It felt like about 5000 miles, backfiring, sputtering, fighting to hit 50 mph.

Loved it.

3311 miles, 145 of those were off road, to Moab and back in 2013. I did it in 2011 too, but was there for two less days. I leave for Ouray Colorado in a month, which will be another 3000 mile trip.

We've made several family trips in the XJ or the ZJ, towing a popup, from OC CA to
- Glacier NP in Montana, with a stop at Great Basin NP in Nevada on the way back
- southern Utah via Great Basin NP again into Colorado with a swing north then back over the rockies and back
- North through CA, OR, & WA. Took the ferry to Victoria, BC and explored Vancoover Island for a few days. Took the ferry to Campbell, BC, a side trip to Whistler, then back home.

The BC trip was a cool trip, but exhausting. We only stayed two nights in the same place a couple of times. We're keeping the trips shorter anymore.

Longest off road trip was the Mojave Road earlier this year. We did 120 miles on the (mostly unpaved) trail through the Mojave Desert.

Good times...
