48 States in 5 days

Heard from my mom (who heard on NPR) about a trio of folks that are attempting to set "the record" for fastest drive to all 48 continental states. They are aiming to do it in 120 hours (5 days) and are of course following the standard rules of no stops except to refuel and change drivers. As of this writing they are in South Dakota and are 36 states down with 12 to go. They started in Vermont and are ending in 4 corners.

Follow along at their blog at or see the map. Also see Barry Stiefel's 50 States in a Week's Vacation

Good to see people following the lead of our great 88 Ohio counties in 24 hours trip

They do stop for bathroom breaks also, but I bet they combine them with the other stops. But I bet if someone was really desperate, they'd stop and let him go. And everyone else would go too.

Jeff and I were gonna tell you about this, in case you hadn't heard. Guess we were too slow. I really think you could beat their time though. It just seems like a Dan Miller thing to do. :-) (Don't shoot me Carolyn.)

Here's another thing that seems like a Dan Miller thing to do--confluence hunting ( Ever heard of it? I just read an article about it in a junk magazine from some mailing list Jeff got himself onto.
