You are planning on riding your Ninja 250 2,775 miles in three day?

Oh, never mind, saw that it was by car in the title. Yes, that's quite possible. Not fun, you are going to spend pretty much every waking moment on the road, but it is possible.

i drove from florida to pa solo, nonstop (piss/food/fuel only)1100 miles or so, sucked. Id hate to think of doing 2, or even worse 3, of those days back to back.

shortly after, i spent about a year driving truck over-the-road, also sucked.

careful with redbull and energy drinks, make ya piss a lot and you'll eventually crash hard from em.


so, i wouldnt do it unless i absolutely had to.

yeah piss/food/fuel is basically the plan....maybe if i get tired pull over n knock out for a few hours.....im thinking of stopping at a motel along the way at night....im thinking of trying to hit about 900 miles the first day n seeing how that is.....if i think i can do it again the next ill do it again n the next two days ill do 500 each

well if i get redbull ima get some gatorade n water too hehehe....

So why are you on this Judge Judy-type show????
cuz my gf is into modeling ....and the gay guy that organizes all of the events called me and asked me if i wanted to be on that show....at first i said fk that....but then i got to thinking and decided since they were paying to get my ass over there and kickin me down with some money....ill just skip the flight back n take my car.....

as long as im not "getting sued" for "cheating on my gay lover" ill roll with it hahaha

its a bullshit show so i guess they just need ppl

when driving all day you wont need many calories since you are just sitting there. i didnt eat much over those 3 days (and hence, didnt have to shit very often), just a decent breakfast, some snacks along the way at gas stations, and a small dinner (or nothing) when i pulled into a motel for a couple hours of sleep overnight. staying hydrated is important but dont overdo it or you'll be pulling over every hour to piss. i drank a Monster/Rockstar 16oz or 2 along with some water every day.

edit: this was spokane wa, to philly, via rt. 80. the 1100 mile day was from sturgis sd to east of chicago. long day. and this was solo in my jetta with my entire life packed in it!

You're going to be bored as shit. I drove 300 miles and thought I was going to go insane after 200. I've always been an irritable child growing up so it may not be so bad for you.

I also had a moment where I needed to piss, so I waited until I needed to get gas. I got gas but didn't have the desire to piss anymore and totally forgot about it. 100 miles in, I REALLY had to piss but didn't feel like stopping again, so I took out an empty soda bottle and tried very hard to piss in that. It was really hard because I pretty much had to force my dick into the soda bottle with 1 hand. If I didn't get the tip of my dick in, the piss would spray all over me. Luckily my penis is very small, so I managed.

I think it would suck hard. I would do it over two weeks and see the country a bit...

i would like to do something like this, no schedule, no route... would be much more enjoyable than a nonstop interstate drone.
yep, just a nice car and some good weather. I would document it also.
