Each year I like to figure out not only where I went, but how far I went to get there. 2008 was a record year for me as I travelled further then I ever have before.
Here are the numbers:
By plane: 7,951 miles
By car (only counting trips of 2 hours or more): 1,762 miles
By train: 1,423 miles
By ship: 801 miles
By ski-lift: 15,975 ft. (~3 miles)
Grand total: 11,930 miles
My plane, car and ski-lift numbers are pretty accurate, while the ship and train numbers are more of a wild guesstimate. In any case, it’ll be interesting to see how I do in 2009.
