Wow. Some of you guys are hardcore drivers. Not for a hunting trip, but I just drove 1230 miles straight through a few weeks ago going to see my daughter and it wiped me out. With 2 food stops and 3 gas stops, I still made it in 16.5 hours.

Flew into Omaha, NE and met some buddies and drove to far northern Saskatchewan. Forget how many hours but it was a loooong drive.

Iíve done some long drives hunting- longest solo was 21 hours with a 3-4 hour nap in the driver seat. Stupid on my part on reflection.

Driver fatigue causes accidents, injuries and fatalities. I believe if you want to kill yourself- so be it. But not another guy, or woman, or innocent family.

Iím on a search and rescue team. ***** goes sideways for folks really fast.

Hunt hard- life is short.

Longest run for me was from Oceanside California to Carroll Springs Texas. Did it on my old motorcycle, only stopped for gas & grub.

I donít recall how many hours it was though.

Won't do that anymore. Lost an aunt and uncle due to a sleepy driver dozing off. I won't put my family or another's in danger like that anymore.

Yeah, flying works better unless you want to bring home all of the moose meat. . I guess flying would have worked better then too, I just couldn't afford it.
