    Wait, now there's a public speaking component of the contest?! I don't know if I'm ready for that. But I have to say, yours is just as good as @Shesmyne2"'s Custer letter for @NKYTA.

    You're a camera photog or a drone photog or both? Some/an aerial shot(s) of the inn might be interesting - if you were in the area for that lobster roll. If that looks like a possibility then PM me and we can talk turkey.

    There's a new game metric for you: Miles walked while supercharging :) But then we'd also have to rule if miles was the official measure for our metric friends outside the US border :( AND if you're walking WITH somebody, who would get credit for the distance if you decide to switch drivers :p

    I can usually chop a chunk of time off our trips by stopping at an intermediate charger with a lower battery reading than by charging as full as the car recommends. And I usually get a bunch of strange looks from other folks as I splash and dash. :)

    Guessing because of covid and staffing there's a passport app backlog. There's a special exemption until the end of June about getting back into the US on an expired passport. But I don't know why the Canadians let you in other than to pad your numbers. :)...

    Yea, that threw me on a recent trip too. I decided to drive all the way to King of Prussia and get it on the way back since I still had to get Jim Thorpe North. Would be nice if the turnpike names had direction as part of the name, like Jim Thorpe.

    Weekend trip and I cleaned up some nagging sites, spreadsheet updated. The conductor of my high school choir is retiring after 47 years of teaching.

    This could have gone an entirely different direction. You put your sites in using the actual day stamp, because you were going to do that anyway since game records don’t matter. Then the admins notice that you’re not on the most daily visits chart and ask and that’s when you volunteer the 8 to...

    I actually had a radio DJ cut me off once when he said, “We’ll, even a broken clock is right twice a day. “ and I responded that wasn’t correct. If it was daylight savings and depending on the time the clock could be right just once or even three times.

    Really? That's so kind. My usual descriptors are generally much more unflattering.

It was that same incremental value that...

    I'm confused by your use of unvisited in your comment if you're just trying to identify the leaders or commenting on the logic. If logic, then you're not comparing the "unvisited" for the leader against everyone else, you're comparing the visited, then looking at the count of what another...

    Here's another strange idea for badges in the game: What about an "Anti-leader" badge? It would be a calculation, which off the top I realize may be difficult in the current environment. But as we said in my previous position, you get what you pay for and I'm just here to throw spaghetti at...

    I've created some pretty complicated (and interesting) Excel files and I've used colors to try and be a roadmap for what I did for both myself and folks that came after me. I was continually stymied because once you get past the 5 or 6 base colors, shades start to look the same.

    Coming from the banking industry but not credit cards specifically: Banks prefer transactions in the country-native currency that they then convert to your home currency. Of course, that rate varies by day so all transactions for a day would be converted at the same rate. This winds up being...

    Day 5, last of the big haul before getting home. It was fun being by the shore in the off-season. The absence of people and traffic were both welcome and striking. Kind of made me think what things were like two years ago. It was also nice seeing trees about to bloom. It's probably a good...

    Day 4 We drove the whole width of North Carolina without having BBQ.
