mindseye: Okay -- to show I have a fun-loving-if-a-bit-geeky, apolitical side, let me share a game that I've been playing for the past couple of days: What is the longest driving route you can generate using MapQuest? Here's the rule: Any point-to-point route is acceptable using any search parameters you wish. The starting and ending 'points' can be as specific or as general as you wish. But MapQuest has to actually be able to satisfy your request with a drivable route from start to end. Only mileage that is actually routed counts. My record so far is 5142.24 miles, 162.5 hours. Who can beat it?
