I seem to be wrong.<quoted text>???
I just ran it through Google maps and got 4,060 miles. Considering I don't have exact addresses, I think 160 miles is an acceptable variance.
Even if you accidentally did Zanesville to Portland and back, that's still 1600 miles.
Article says his rout is:
Start at home in Zanesville, Ohio
1209 miles to Houston
217 miles to Lafayette, La
454 miles to Birmingham, Ala
800 miles to Altoona, Pa
581 miles to New England (I used Portland, too)
800 miles to home
I must have been looking at a segment mileage rather than the whole trip. This morning Portland to Houston is 1908 miles. Funny hw those interstates expand overnight.
