    As far as I can recall for me it was 27 hours. I woke up at 6 AM that morning, and left home at 7PM that evening to go to a casino which is a 2 hours drive away. I did not get home till the next morning at 9 AM (which is 27 hours awake)

    About 3 days. i do 27 hours like once a week. I have a lot of sleep problems. If i don't take something to sleep everynight i am up all night and all day. The longer i stay up the easier it is to stay up. I might start to hallucinate- but i can lay down and not be able to turn my brain off.

    42. Got up at 6am. Took a 7pm flight from Victoria, BC to Seattle. Flew PanAm to London without sleeping on the plane because of my idiot friend. Landed in the morning GMT, toured London (my first time there), drove to Dover in my brother's VW Microbus and took a night ferry across the channel to somewhere in France. We then drove to a town near the Belgian border where we finally stopped at a hotel at about 2am. I was so out of it, that I couldn't fall sleep for a long time. The hotel was really strange too. Our room had the toilet and bidet right in the bedroom.

    About 52 hours, on a Chinese train. I've done plenty of 24-30 hour trips all over the place - I find I get a 'second wind' after about 20 hours which can carry me another day or so if I need it to, especially when travelling. Beyond that I've never tried.

    It's not like I seek to stay awake though, sleep is great!

    I haven't gone to bed since 1974. The year Steely Dan released Pretzel Logic. i listen to it every day. My name is Rikki, and I've lost the number. Once I find it, ... I will rest. Finally.

    I am an occasional insomniac, though when I have a 'spell' of not sleeping it can last for weeks. But anyway, I have on several times been up at least 36 hours if not close to 48 hours before. Let me tell ya, after about 28 hours....life really begins to suck bad

    50 1/2 hours, did a normal day of work and stuff flew to germany really early one that morning/night got there in the morning spend the day getting to where I was going and room. Went out partying that night got in really late. Once you crest 30 hours getting drunk is twice as easy. I slept till 10 got up tired and did my day of work and by the next day the internal clock was reset and I didnt have a problem the rest of the trip.
