Google Maps Knows the best route.....
 
If you have never seen this, it is worth a look.

Go to google homepage.
Click on "Maps"
Click on "Get Directions"
Enter starting address of "Boston, MA"
Enter Ending address of "Paris France"

Read step 9 :eek:
Shake your head repeatedly.

LOL...29 days...oh and 3 hours, don't forget about that...like it matters after 29 days on the road (or water, as the case may be):laughing:

Knows the best route.....
 
I got a route from Minnesota to Ufa, Russia (Urals area).

It was a 6 page printout.

I questioned the times for the different legs of the trip.

I have no idea about the accuracy of the swimming (29 days), but my Mickey Mouse float would probably not hold up or meet the schedule.

The U.S. drive times were reasonable. The Russian driving times were probably about 1/4th of what it really takes at best if you know how to find gas.

I tried to get a trip route to Australia, but it did not have one.

So when are you leaving for Russia?

I would love to go back today. - Unfortunately, I will have yo build up my swimming endurance.

The funniest part is, the directions are accurate for leading you to the point of Boston that would result in the most direct, quickest swim!
