Common use in '80s/'90s. The act of a military service member driving a long distance to get home for a 72 or 96 hour liberty/holiday weekend. It is initiated as soon as the liberty starts, and the service member returns home just before the liberty ends. The act itself is a non-stop rush to make it home, enjoy time away, and return back to base. The drive involves no delays other than to stop for gas and is usually at least 7 or more hours each way.
