I don't know if you've done the whole thing, but the entire northern alignment of CA-1 is beautiful. You turned around at the Point Arena Lighthouse, but if you went a little farther north, you'd have gotten to the Mendocino Bluffs and the Glass Beach area of Fort Bragg. Farther north from there, there is a dramatic inland swing once CA-1 hits the King Range and enters the Redwood Curtain. It's maybe my favorite drive in all of California, and I go out of my way to drive it anytime I can.

If you're ever in the area again, I'd suggest spending some time around Mendocino/Ft. Bragg. Lots of beautiful coastal trails and short day hikes.
I been through a fair bit of CA 1, besides that segment I traveled on it from Mill Valley to the town at Big Sur before the Pfeiffer Canyon Bridge over the past 5 years. I'd love to drive thru Big Sur and rest of the Shoreline Highway portion. Too much for a day trip though, maybe one day when I am able to spare 2 or 3 days for such a trip, then I'll have a new record for staying on Highway 1 (wherever there's an inn/hotel of course)!

About 660 miles on Interstate 40 from Greensboro to Memphis.

Mine would be I-90 from O'Hare (where we merged on) to Rapid City SD on a road trip. 900 miles on the dot.

I thought CPZ drove the entire length of I-70 from the vicinity of Baltimore  :-D to Cove Fort on his trip. Where does the 50-mile discrepancy between those two scores come from?

One of them rounded 2150 up to the nearest hundred, based on the sign in "Baltimore".

Googling "how long is I-70" gives you a big result of 2,151 miles.

This is small beans compared to a lot of people, but I-80 from I-76 in Nebraska to the exit in Tinley Park, Illinois I get off at is about 803 miles according to Google Maps.

Now, it would be I-94 from Medora, North Dakota to Madison, Wisconsin, which is about 825 miles, but my dad and I took I-694 because it appeared to be slightly shorter than taking I-94 through downtown Minneapolis and St. Paul.

But there is no disputed gap in I-70 the way there is in US 20.

Didn't we find that the "common knowledge" answer included all alternate routes and business routes added on to the total and not just the mainline?

Probably I-95 from its junction with I-26 to its junction with I-4. This was for a trip to Florida, circa 2009. Either that or I-95 from its junction with I-85 to Manhattan. I think the latter is longer but I can't check right now.
