I realize that in North America the definition of a long drive may 
vary... When we lived in New Jersey, we drove to visit my family in 
Florida every Thanksgiving, 1100 miles (1800 km) in one go, usually 
during the night to avoid the heavy traffic around Philly, Washington 
and Richmond.

But even here in Europe, I do tend to drive a lot. My longest one-day 
drive was from Zurich to south of Alicante in Spain in 2002. Last Monday 
I drove from Le Mans to Copenhagen, 1450 km--still a bit longer than a 
standard Canadian commute ;-)
