Google Maps 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?

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!
