    Default 48 states in ?

    It seems to me that I ince saw references to a record for circumnavigating the lower 48 states in such a way as to drive in all of them. I also recall this record being something like 7 days. Does anyone have any knowledge of or links to such endeavors today?

    Thanks

    Default All around US

    Hi AZBuck,

    There's a guy on the forum who did it, he posted some information about it in a thread called "How long - all around US" in the "Planning summer road trips" section of the forum. I believe he left his e-mail if you want to contact him.

    Thanks, Gen, for the pointer. I found the thread, and the very last posting had what I was looking for. Less than 6 days indeed!

    Default Still the Best Route

    I have looked at a bunch of routes to accomplish this -- I still think the best of the best was pioneered by Quest-4 back in 1994. For more information, look at the <a href = "http://www.roadtripamerica.com/people/quest4.htm">Quest-4 page<a/>.

    We also maintain a list of other noteworthy routes -- check out the <a href = "http://www.roadtripamerica.com/links/routes.htm">routes page<a/>.
