    I guess being a geography major in college paid off.
    PS. if it weren't for getting North Dakota and Arkansas in the first 3 states I think I would have been better. Yeah, here's Arkansas, put it in this blank map.

    Update= 94% 10 Miles 142 seconds
    I really like this game, I want to see how my friends do.

    You need only two tools: WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and it should, use WD-40. If it moves and shouldn't, use the duct tape.

    80%, 49 miles, 312 seconds. For a Canuck that drove through nearly all the northern states west to east, I'm pretty happy with that. Individually state by state, I noticed an error distance of about 149 miles as the worst "out of place" I ever got. Although I admit to 'dropping' one too. Alaska apparently moved a few miles west on me
