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.
