Trip Odometer

Yesterday marked the 11 month anniversary of me closing on my house and starting my trip. I took the time and made an estimate of how far I’ve traveled during the last 11 months. I used Google Earth for this estimate. I rounded everything to the nearest 10 miles. It doesn’t include short trips, walking, cab rides, subway rides, etc. I’m sure this is an underestimation as many of the distances I used straight lines, not actual routes.

    Hi
    Can you tell me how you used google earth to measure your trip? I’ve been trying to use it for the same purpose, but it does stupid stuff like having me kayak from Darwin to San Francisco!
    Thanks

    Dunno. I’ll keep traveling until I’m done. I might go back to the US for a bit at some point.

    Wondering how much longer you will be traveling?
    The # of miles is amazing.

    I’ve been trying to get the term “lunaversary” to catch on and replace “month anniversary”.
