How to drive through all 48 of the contiguous United States in 113 hours

Have you ever thought about visiting all of the United States? In fact, the two of us have a goal to visit all 50 states by the time with both turn 50 – 2015 and 2016, respectively.

But what if you wanted to drive through them all (well, the lower 48) – ON THE SAME ROAD TRIP?

A guy named Stephen Von Worley figured out the best way how. Von Worley, from Data Pointed, mapped out the most efficient drive that would take a person through every state in the lower 48 and D.C. The route begins in South Berwick, Maine and ends 6,872 miles later in Taft, Montana.

Here’s the Google Maps link, if you want to try it for yourself!

About Shelley Seale

I'm Shelley, a journeyer and learner of the world, freelance journalist and author, yoga chick and dog lover. I pound the keyboard from home barefoot every day, and while my boss is demanding she also occasionally lets me have the early afternoon cocktail. I think not going into an office or collecting corporate paychecks are very good ideas, though not always profitable. I have written for National Geographic, USA Today, The Guardian, Texas Monthly and CNN, among others. Neither the New York Times nor Johnny Depp have answered my letters yet. I love yoga, indie movies, wine, and books, though not necessarily in that order. I believe in karma. Mean people suck. If I could have any dream job I would like to be a superhero. I have performed a catch on the flying trapeze, boarded down a live volcano and was once robbed by a monkey in Nepal. But, I don't know how to whistle. My mantra is "travel with a purpose."
