Breaking -in: the real story

I'm sorry if this topic is repetitive. I've looked through the search menu and have, frankly, been a little confused. Some have said that you should just drive no problem, others have said go highway, and still others have said to do stop-and-go city driving. I've even read the posts that have said that Honda has 2,000 miles on the engine prior to your purchase (hmmm...). We're buying our Odyessy 3 hours away, highway driving. I had no thought of driving it home until I talked to my brother who said I should be careful about how we drive the car during "the break in period." I am not a car expert, but is this a real issue or just something made up that you can blame yourself for in the future if anything goes wrong?

Thanks to you all! Makes sense to me. I've had new cars before, but I've never research one so much in my life (my husband is beginning to worry
) and I never considered this breaking-in period before. Thanks also to nds, we'll try that route on the way home. Any must sees on the way? We've not been that way before. Thanks again!
