    Default Anyone done the Johnny Cash "I've been everywhere man" route?

    I know I'm not the first one to want to do this, anyone tried hitting all these cities? I know somebody must've already put the route together (at least for the continental U.S.).

    Default Sounds like a challenge

    I know I haven't done it, but it sounds like quite a challenge - probably done best by someone who has the Streets and Trips software.

    If I get some extra time in the next few days, I may see what I could come up with.

    And for the record, I believe I have been in 40 of the 88 "everywhere" places.

    Default 55 would be my count

    I like these "challenge" road trips! I am not positive, but I think I have been in 55 of these places!

    Default I've Been to 35

    By my count, I've been to 35. I never knew how he could say those so fast. He had to be using a list as he couldn't have memorized all of them.

    Did anyone ever see him do it live?

    I'm happy to say I've been to 21 of those places. Not bad for a Limey!

    Default Sounds like you're the first!

    Well, hiphopcr, it sounds like you're the first. If you do it, you're gonna have to come back here and share your route and give us a trip report. What a fun idea.

    Default Oh cool!!

    We've often thought about this. I've only been to seventeen including Shreveport and Louisiana. I guess I've got a lot more miles to go.

    Default Now I don't feel so bad.

    I only had 21. It seems most are geared towards East Coasters? I haven't ahd the pleasure of much travel there. But it sure gives me a goal worth shooting for!

    Default Problems discovered

    It seems to me that the list seems to be geared more towards the Central US. I see lots of places in Missouri (including Texas County), Kansas, Tennessee, and surrounding states - which I suppose makes sense, considering that's where the Man in Black is from.

    I've also hit a couple of roadblocks in doing some basic research for doing this as a challenge trip. Several of these places don't seem to exist. Running a google search for places like Chadanocka, Tollaperson, andMattua just turns up links for the Cash song. Perhaps these places are overseas, or just made up?
