Last week, I drove straight up more than 6 hours. I drove from Atlanta all the way to Alabama. And I took about half hour to have dinner; then I drove straight back to Georgia. It really cost me back pain just by sitting in my car and driving. Can you drive you car in long distance without causing back pain?

straight up... the most i ever did was 3.5 hours. and already my arms would be awfully sore. i'm imagining 6 hours... yeah back pain for sure. :) another friend advised me to take a few minutes rest evry now and then when travelling long distance. it's a good excuse to stretch your legs a bit and ease back pains. :)

No way. If I sit more than an hour without changing positions, I suffer badly from back pains. I have to sit and stand, walk around every -let's say at least an hour.Might be that the age has something to do with it too.I'm not so young anymore, the body goes through all kinds of changes and it's harder and harder to do things we've done years ago.I find hard even to clean the house the way I did. Few years ago, I was cleaning all the house in three hours. Now, It takes me three hours for one floor only, and then I have to rest for the day. Unbeliavable! Back to driving, when having such a long way, I would better consider taking the train. Or stop every hour and walk a little bit. Just sit and drive - that's so hard. No wonder all truck drivers have severe back pain.
