This USA Capital Challenge grew out of an e-mail I forwarded to Joshua P. (laydownthelaw)
The original e-mail was from an elementary school teacher who wanted us to create a mapping route that would connect all of the USA capitals that she could use in a geography lesson. I knew that JP had worked on something like this. He has created such a route....
Since Google Maps only allows 25 stops per route, he has two routes.
Augusta, Maine to Nashville, Tennessee
Nashville, Tennessee to Phoenix, Arizona
His total "road trip" would be 13,037 road miles. This route connects only the 48 continental state capitals, because it is a little hard to drive to Juneau or Honolulu.
So the Challenge is -- create your own route that is less than 13,037 miles.... We think some one might be able to break 12,000 -- Are you up to the Challenge?
