Anyone know what this vine is? It's growing quite a bit in a grassy area and gets very long and woody. I have never seen it blossom. Thank you!

It reminds me of the invasive Japanese Honeysuckle (Lonicera japonica)

I agree that it looks like some kind of honeysuckle vine.

The bottom one is almost certainly japanese honeysuckle.
The top one might have some native coral honeysuckle in the mix.
Japanese honeysuckle should be pulled out, the slower growing coral honeysuckle should be encouraged.
Sadly, the japanese honeysuckle has a habit of showing up everywhere I attempt to grow the desirable native variety.

Coral honeysuckle with hummingbird (April 2013)

once you positively identify each honeysuckle, they become easier to tell apart... the native coral honeysuckle leaves are a bit whiter on the underside.
