US 60 for me, but have only been on very short parts of US 30 and US 50.

Ditto.  Iíve been on 30 through a good portion of PA (from I-81 to US 202 and the Ben Franklin Bridge), and Iíve even been to its eastern terminus in AC.  The only portions of 50 Iíve driven are from the B-W Parkway into DC, and from I-97 to the 301 split.

I-70 in Breezewood is also US 30 so if you've been though Breezewood you've been on US 30.
US-30 is multiplexed with I-70 in Breezewood too.

Nope... never been through Breezewood.

I actually can't even conceive a situation in which I would have to pass through there. It is pretty much due south of me, but I would already have made my way over to I-79 or I-81 if I were to head that far south, missing the area altogether.

The longest US Route I've missed is US 64, and that may stand for a while. I've been on US 1, 60 and 70, but wasn't driving at the time. Whether it counts that I've been on US 1 depends on whether you think walking on the sidewalk alongside the road (in Alexandria, VA and Washington DC) counts as being on it. US 60 and 70 were both the same day when my buddy and I went from El Paso to Phoenix on I-10.

US 6, don't really need to explain why.

I actually live in Corvallis less than a half mile away from US 20 (.47 when running), the longest road in the US.

I didn't realize that there was anyone in Chicago who hasn't at least gone through Indy on the way to Florida for Spring Break.

I lived in the Chicago area for a total of 16 years, and the closest I ever got to Indianapolis was a friend's wedding in one of the suburbs.

For a 2dus: US 68 @ 560 miles.
For a 3dus (and the "title"): US 283 @ 730 miles.

Crossed these many times; never driven on them, however.

US 20.

On a side note, I thought US 6 was the longest (it was indeed the case during the time it went to Long Beach), but that was because the list I used split US 20 at Yellowstone.

Mine looks to be US 68 at around 550 miles, though in my notes I have it only listed as "probably never traveled".  I've crossed it in several places.  At the least, I've not been on it since I have kept track of such things.  Looks like second place goes to US 43, which is untraveled by me with near certainty.

Do you have a licence? You live awful close to I-65.

I lived in Illinois for 8Ĺ years with a valid license, yet I've only been on I-65 once (and back).  That was for a wedding, meaning I had no "regular" reason to be on it otherwise.

Iíve never been on US 20 or US 6. Iíve never been west of eastern Tennessee, so whatever the longest north-south route past there would be my answer for those, excluding US 41 which I have been on in Florida.

That would be 87, unless you count 52 or 62 as north-south.
