When I drove cross-country with my son, Jake, in August, the total driving time for our 2,801 mile trip was 45 hours and 45 minutes. We, of course, assumed we had established a new transcontinental speed record. It turns out we weren't even close and apparently you have to drive straight through without stopping! Who knew? The new record had been set a year ago but due to issues with the statute of limitations the new record holders couldn't reveal anything until now. Oh, and the new record is 31 hours and 4 minutes. Of course they had a BMW X5 M and we had a 1999 Honda CRV. We were so close . . .
