Last weekend I drove down with friends to the SV Temple in Pittsburg, a distance of 212 miles from where I live. We rented a Nissan Pathfinder. I drove one-way, with my friend taking over for the return trip. The longest I was behind the wheel non-stop was 113 miles - about 2 hours. When we pulled into a rest area, I got out and nearly collapsed - my right leg had cramped up so badly I could barely walk. We stopped there for over 30 minutes as I walked up and down the road trying to get my leg back in shape. The cramp never really went away until the next day.
If a paltry 113 miles can do this to me I think I am not a fit candidate for driving longer distances non-stop, even in a high-end SUV. I am curious if folks here can drive much longer hours and hold up better than me? I am a relatively less experienced driver - been driving for less than 2 years now. Maybe it gets better with time?
How long and what distance have you driven non-stop? Did you suffer cramps or body pains and stuff?
