I really like birthdays. I want to have the longest birthday that is technically possible. How do I achieve this?

I have been discussing with my flatmate the possibility of a birthday exceeding 24 hours. I would like to know what is the absolute maximum amount of time I could spend on any one date, in order to make my birthday as long as technically possible.
For example, if I were to start my birthday, the 1st December on one side of the international date line, then fly across the line without going into the 30th November, how many extra hours could I add onto my allotted 24?
Bonus points for anyone who knows whether this has been attempted and achieved.
