In Johns footnote e-mail that was sent out on Dec. 10, 2004 John had a 7 question poll which no one has answered, at least on here. So I will attempt to get it Question 1 & 2 are past, so we will start with 3
Ans. #3 you will reach Miss. at 10 AM Jan 8, 2005
Ans. #4 you will reach Ala. at Noon Jan 13, 2005
Ans. #5 you will reach GA. at 8 PM Jan 19, 2005
Ans. #6 you will Touch the Atlantic Ocean before Noon on your Moms Birthday Jan 27, 2005 (3850 Miles as a guess)
Ans. #7 The winner should receive a autographed copy of your table top Photo book of your Journey Across America.
Figures and Calclations for those who care.
Mississippi 200 Miles, Alabama 240 Miles, Georgia 240 Miles plus 16-30 at the end. With an average of 30 miles per day you are now 4 days behind. 4 days X 30 miles divided by 19 days (plus Jan 27th to end not counted in) = 7 more miles per day. So you need an average of 37 miles per day to complete the journey.
At this point in time there is no doubt in my mind that we will be having Birthday Cake for your Mom at noon, Jan 27th 2005.
Love You Dad
