Regarding current countdown, I imagine someone is keeping a more accurate tally but my back of envelope calculation shows that where he was at 11:30am EST (near Indy Airport) it looks like:
771 miles to Times Square (using Google maps with "avoiding highways" option to eliminate interstates and choosing shortest option)
About 12 Days 20 Hours to beat record
This comes out to 60.06 miles per 24-hour period for the next 308 hours.
Robert does not get the record if somebody is watching all the time. But the good thing will be that he never has to release his gps data.[/quote]
Why does he have to finish at Time Square? If he's "run" sufficient miles by Guinness's standards why can't he just finish at the nearest beach on the East coast?
