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.
So if he averages a very optimistic 50 miles a day, then he still comes up 2 1/2 days short of the record.
