A Long Road Ahead

What is the longest distance that you have driven JUST to check out a fish store?

For me, 3 Hours.

yep, probably about the same. My first SW tank came from a local charity auction, had to pick up the sytem from a town that was about 2-1/2 hours away! I'm sure it was quite entertaining seeing a 55 gallon fish tank sticking out the back of a Snap Orange volkswagen Beetle doing 70 MPH down the highway

I guess the farthest I've gone so far would be 3.5 hrs.

I guess a little over 2 hours each way to go to That Pet Place. Worth it on some items, but others could be purchased at the lfs for a similar price.

Today's trip to a new locale was supposed to be 2 1/2 hours each way. After getting lost (stupid Yahoo Maps), it wound up being 4 hours there and 3 hours back. Yuck! We did get the fish that I have been waiting for for 6 months.
