Horning's Hideout in Oregon to Black Falls in Montgomery, VT: 3069 miles. I was surprised to discover that it's actually a longer distance than Kit Carson Park (Escondido, CA) to Black Falls, which is "only" 2974 miles.

By the way, I drove from my home in Vegas to my new home in Boston in August (playing half of the top 10 courses along the way). So if you want to count the distance from Sunset Park in Vegas to Borderland State Park in Sharon, MA, that is 2730 miles that I legitimately drove in one trip.

If you ever have the chance to spend two weeks doing nothing but driving across the country and playing disc golf, I highly recommend it.

From 1994-2006 I took a number of rambling backroad trips around the country. The longest was 6,602 miles, in two weeks. If you follow the car's maintenance schedule, that's an oil change before you leave, an oil change a week later and somewhere far from home, and an oil change upon return.

I started playing disc golf in 1995; courses were few and far between at the time, but I checked off 24 states that way. Now there are courses everywhere, and I rarely travel. Go figure.
