    Kate127 :  I used to drive up to 8 hours just to go caving every other weekend or so.  I can’t figure out why I won’t bother anymore… probably the lack of company for the drive.  Now I will still travel several hours, but not as often and there’d better be some great adventure waiting for me at my destination to make it worthwhile.

    jnm_sha :  we were just up by Helen yesterday hiking! We’re about 45 min from Helen! The Tampa area is DHs second choice so if we move that way, I’ll have to hit you up for some info!

    Really dorky but we are getting ready to drive about 8 hours each way to the So Cal Corgi Beach Day. To us it’s totally worth it because it’s a big event and really fun. We do long weekend trips pretty often, we have done probably 5-6 drives 8+ hours each way in the past 2 years with other smaller roadtrips.

    I do 3 hour trips in a day about once a year. So I would go more than 5 hours for a weekend trip.

    Kate127 :  I’m from the UK so can get most places in 3-4 hours lol that’s as far as I’d drive for the weekend as I’m the only driver.

    If it was a longer trip, I’d just get the train.

    3-4 hours would be tops for me if it was just a weekend trip (Friday night – Sunday).

    Kate127 :  I just got home from a weekend trip that was a 5 hour drive. Was it exhausting? Yes, but I think it was worth it!
