Plus, using something practical, like greyhound, it could be useful, because you can always get somewhat CLOSE to home with greyhound where someone can pick you up, and tickets I think are still under $100… which isn’t cheap in general but afaik, still the cheapest way to get from A to B.
I used to visit Internet friends on Greyhound as a teenager. I got to see some REALLY small towns in some strange places.
Reckless? Probably, but I had a return ticket ready before I left home ’cause I was always afraid I’d get stuck somewhere and not know how to get home, so being prepared was the answer.
That’s awesome that you did that with Google Maps – they should make a game out of it; I mean, they have the data, why not make it fun?
