That map meme


  1. Go To Mapquest.com
  2. Click on Directions
  3. Enter your current address and the address of your childhood home (or at least the town if you don't remember the exact address)
  4. Put the time and distance in a post like this.
From my Mom's house in Aston, Pennsylvania to my current address in San Diego, California is 2,739.49 miles and would take a total estimated time of 41 hours, 55 minutes.

I don't win, but that's pretty darned far.

(For the record, from me to Q is only a slightly longer 2,755.99 miles in 42 hours, 22 minutes.)

Hm. Mine probably isn't all that interesting...

7.22 miles, 19 minutes travel time. From 6 Rhyl Avenue, Toronto, to 44 Dunfield Avenue, Toronto.

At least it gave a somewhat decent route to take.

I think I should get extra points for living in a different country(and having the only journey that takes you through 3 or 4 countries respectively) and having 2 addresses :D

I should add - if they did one where I could put in my old address in Hong Kong, I'd have won :D
