'In my younger days I managed to drive from central NJ to Orlando, FL,
only stopping a few times to water the shrubs. I brought a cooler full
of drinks with me and a bunch of CD's to keep my awake.'
REPLY: You would have made a great long distance Trucker , for sure.
When i was 23 years old, i drove from Northern Illinois to Tucson,
Arizona at the rate of 16 hours driving per day. I arrived in Tucson on
the morning of the third day. I was so uptight , tense, ornery, and
tired...that it took a good 3 days for me to recouperate . After 16
hours of driving back then, id have a headache , a sunburn on my face
and neck, and was so wired that i couldnt get to sleep. I give you
credit for doing it for a longer time than that.
