Cross America Drive Challenge under 47 hours solo
Well proceeding the previous months of touring across western US, I must say an absolute amazing experience. I am Currently Located in Seattle Washington and sod’s law prevailing I have just landed a job in Savannah, State of Georgia.
Me being fragtastic , And somewhat a fool I figured somehow it would be plenty of fun to see how fast I can make the journey. I’ve read that people have done New york to LA in just over 30 hours and I really don’t have that as a target. 🙂
The plan is to set off early afternoon and see when I land in Savannah using fuel tickets as proof of time taken. Sleep will be done in my comfy AMG seats as and when desired with the aid of a duvet.
The route isn’t really thought over very well and I really don’t know if this is the fastest or shortest way.
In all it’s just over 3000 miles and 12 states.
The vehicle is the Mercedes-Benz SLk 55 AMG that I have been touring in for the last four months with a tent in the boot.
The results from the trip turned out as follows;
Departed Seattle, WA (pacific time zone) on monday at 13:09
and arrived in Savannah, GA (eastern time +3) at 14:57
That’s 49:48 hrs:mins -3hrs for time zones = 46 Hours 48 minutes.
