Me? Well, I'm still, so far, glad to say that Mapquest doesn't really know where I live; using the burg close by, though, it says: Total Est. Time: 17 hours, 52 minutes Total Est. Distance: 1087.48 miles
The mileage is not too far off, given it's from the burg that hosts my 911 grid address... but the time is way under. I guess Mapquest doesn't take road construction and weather into account.
Haven't driven there in 10 years. Haven't been there in 9 years. Haven't been near there in 8 years. Don't want to go back.
