2,148 (roughly) miles driven over 30 hours (roughly) in a 3-day period. Would not recommend.

Would you travel without your partner? non business travel

I’m single so I can’t really speak about what I would actually do but in theory the answer for me to that is yes I would

When my friend and I moved to CA, we covered 2,700+ miles in 37 car-hours. I had about 7 fewer hours behind the wheel, but I covered almost 1,000 more road miles because I got Oklahoma, Texas, and New Mexico.

Have done it a number of times. Difficult to find someone as nuts about college basketball as I am to join me on the trips I've taken the last 4 years.

Sounds like my trip to go buy the Z4. Flew to Phoenix early in the AM, bought the car, drove to Amarillo (slept), drove to Indianapolis (slept), and then back to Pittsburgh. 13 hours a day driving alone is generally my limit but I broke it on that Indianapolis leg.

I'm driving to KC this summer, picking up a buddy, and we're driving out to CA together. I haven't done the math on that one but I imagine it won't be a very restful vacation.

Before the world ended my wife and I would regularly take separate vacations. I don't really want to visit her friend in Waco and she doesn't want to go to every track event. It works well. That's been one of the hardest parts of the pandemic, I think, is as much as we love each other we need some space and the pandemic only affords that in 8 hour blocks.

Are you staying in KC at all? You already know what I’m about to tell you...

Have been to the tournament the past several times it has been in Pittsburgh, a couple times with someone, a couple times alone. Last year was the first time money, air miles, hotel points, work schedule, PTO, and of course team success came together to where no matter where they went, I was going to see my Friars in the big dance. Would have been my first major pleasure trip just by myself.

**** COVID.

BTW it’s fun to go to a sporting event with someone but going alone is underrated as far as actually enjoying the game.

All depends on who you go with. A couple years ago, I attended the PK80 out in Portland over Thanksgiving weekend alone and a number of the games were outstanding and I'd have loved to have been able to go back and forth with someone about game strategy and that kind of thing but it was just me. And I'm fine with that but there are certain times when it wouldn't suck to have someone alongside.

Joe’s KC still has my favorite burnt ends, but you’d be crazy not to go somewhere that has them while you’re in town.

CBear sent my wife a box of burnt ends (and other stuff) when she got cancer. Now my wife doesn't have cancer any more. Coincidence?

Obviously.
Q39 is pretty outstanding as well, although not really a burnt end joint.
Seriously, its KC so you can do no wrong when it comes to BBQ.

We actually booked for the last week of June this weekend.

I'm still a few months away from feeling comfortable with a vacation, but probably want to avoid planes for now. It's just that 11+ hour drive that I really don't know about. My wife and I have done it before, but the only time we tried it with our daughter, we made it to Virginia before she threw up all over the car and we stayed at a hotel that night, turning home in the morning. :lol:
