+regoarrarr Posted April 22, 2003 Share Posted April 22, 2003 So I just recently became aware of the Cannonball Run travel bug race. Since I don't really follow the forums all that often, the first I heard of it was when I picked up 2 racers (Tilly and Toby Tortoise) in Cleveland this weekend. Very cool concept, and of course it got me thinking about similar races that I could do. Ever since TBs came out, I've been interested in trying to get a bug to visit all 50 states. I even made a website of a bug I was going to release with that goal. Never did send him out but that's beside the point. I'm certain I'm not the only one - I have definitely seen other bugs with that goal. But has any bug ever completed it? I tried to search around for one, but didn't see one that had even come close. So I am proposing a Race Through America. The goal for each entrant (bug) will be to visit all 50 states (or perhaps just the continental 48, no offense to Hawaiian or Alaskan cachers). There would be a website, similar to the one for Cannonball Run, that would list the leaders in various categories such as: States visited (for those still in progress) Fastest time to visit all states Slowest time Furthest distance Least distance Most caches visited Least caches visited (could a bug do it in only 50 caches?) etc. The cool thing about this race is that while I would set a starting time, bugs could enter at any time and start from any place. A bug that started in New England might take an early lead, but peter out when it had to visit the western states. So any thoughts, comments, or ideas? Quote Link to comment
