dude, let's road trip
For many Americans, the ultimate vacation experience would be to road trip across the United States and hit a few key destinations along the way. Many acknowledge that stopping at every state in the contiguous U.S. in one trip is damn near impossible. Well, not according to Michigan State University computer science graduate, Randal S. Olson. Olson leveraged the same algorithm used for Where's Waldo to generate the ultimate road trip route, hitting landmarks and / or major cities in every single attached state, included Washington D.C. How long will it take you? Olson approximates about 10 straight days of driving and suggests approximately 2-3 months to complete. So start saving up those vacation days - this could be the trip of a lifetime. P.S. - here's hoping gas prices stay low!
