Last week, Tracy Staedter from Discovery News proposed an interesting idea to me: Visiting every U. One of the hardest parts of planning a road trip is deciding where to stop along the way. Given how large and diverse the U.
To stand a chance at making an interesting road trip, Tracy and I laid out a few rules from the beginning:. With those objectives in mind, Tracy compiled a list of 50 major U.

Tracy wrote about that process on Discovery News here. The result was an epic itinerary with a mix of inner city exploration, must-see historical sites, and beautiful natural landscapes.
All that was left was to figure out the path that would minimize our time spent driving and maximize our time spent enjoying the landmarks.
Image credit: Dean Franklin. Free fuck buddy in Boise Idaho wy, the Google Maps API makes this information freely available, so all it took was a short Python script to calculate the distance and time driven for all 2, routes between the 50 landmarks.
Now with the 2, landmark-landmark distances, our next step was to approach the task as a traveling salesman problem: We needed to order the list of landmarks Naughty woman want sex tonight Hamilton Free fuck buddy in Boise Idaho wy the total distance traveled between them is as small as possible if we visited them in order.
This means finding the route that backtracks as little as possible, which is especially difficult when visiting Florida and the Northeast.
With 50 landmarks to put in order, we would have to exhaustively evaluate 3 x 10 64 possible routes to find the shortest one. To provide some context: The traveling salesman problem is so notoriously difficult to solve that even xkcd poked fun at it:. Clearly, we need a smarter solution if we want to take this epic road trip in our lifetime. Thankfully, the traveling salesman problem has been well-studied over the years and there Free fuck buddy in Boise Idaho wy many ways for us to solve it in a reasonable amount of time.
Ij less than a minute, the genetic algorithm reached a near-perfect solution that makes a complete trip around bucdy U. Click here for the interactive version. Assuming no traffic, this buddyy trip will take about hours 9. The best part is that this road trip is designed so that you can start anywhere on the route as long as you follow it from then on.
But worry not, for I created a second road trip just for you! But really, Cleveland is a nice city to stop in ranked 53 on TripAdvisor. This road trip will more-or-less follow the same path as the major U. This is especially interesting because TripAdvisor reviewers recommend cities like Flint, MI — the 7th most crime-ridden city in the U.
You can find the code here. Every major journey begins with a plan: I hope this article convinced you that Idao learning can play a crucial Fucking mature women in Young`s Cove Road in that planning bbuddy and save you a ton of time along the way.
Of course, it may not be practical for you to take a road trip of epic proportions like the ones described here. All the algorithm needs are the Free fuck buddy in Boise Idaho wy travelled between Free fuck buddy in Boise Idaho wy stop so it can try to compute Boie optimal route.
How you get between those stops is up to you.

I have done this to create several optimized routes to visit all of the county seats in a region or county. My son and I visited all the counties in New England last year, and have also done this for Arkansas, as well as Alabama and Mississippi. I have performed the calculations for perhaps a dozen other states. Would love to see your scripts since that is the weakest part of my process.

Finally — I have yet to find an easy way to create the Google maps like you did. It wg past about locations. Once I have the list I dont want Google to try and optimize it, just plot it but that does not work well….
Shared this with a group Free fuck buddy in Boise Idaho wy Facebook that tries to visit every county in the country — called the Extra Miler Club. I just released the code today. You can find it here: Oh well. I briefly describe how to make these maps in the code linked above. It requires a bit of hacking around the limitations of the Google Maps API, since they limit you to routing 10 waypoints at a time.
You can find an example here: This is really cool.

My husband and I are planning a three month road trip for next year. This is a really great way for us to get in all of our must see items on the list without me sitting with the big map, atlas and google maps open for hours.
Thank you! The road shown on the map between Grand Canyon and Bryce Canyon 89 is not actually a road right now.

That probably should be updated Free fuck buddy in Boise Idaho wy the map. The built up a road through the Navajo Nation.
There are plans to rebuild 89, but according to the locals it will take awhile. The video and plan to repair 89 is incredible! So many variables! I can only advise buying a cheap RV to avoid the costs of staying in a hotel. Have you ever considered releasing the map as a google map with directions or a map bdudy, so technologically-unsavvy people can take the trip?Couple Looking Orgasm Asian Sex Manhattan Single Women
Really cool idea by the way! Thanks Melissa!
Google maps itself only allows maps with up to 10 waypoints at a time, so we would have had to split the trip up into different maps. Anyway, the addresses listed in the numbered lists should FFree on Google Maps, so you can Wife seeking real sex CA Stockton 95209 them into Google Maps in order from your starting point.
Randy, with this map did you also get distances between each point budry time to travel between distances. This is awesome!!! Were you in WA when you wrote this, smoking our finest legal herb?
Hanford was an atomic bomb processing site that now has a lot of leaking radioactive waste barrels. She thoroughly researched all of the landmarks, Free fuck buddy in Boise Idaho wy. One that are obvious are not listed. Maybe she should have consulted with a duck Major?
Quit whining about Washington. When you round the bases, you try to clip the corners. Hanford is A. A recent blown up volcano is a landmark. Hahaha, first thing I questioned too. Since when do we count Superfund sites as Free fuck buddy in Boise Idaho wy
Space Needle at least? Those chemicals were often stored onsite in poorly-constructed and poorly-reinforced Fre tanks that leaked their contents into the ground and into groundwater tables. A surprisingly large number of these sites, still designated as Superfund sites, have yet to be cleaned up and remediated. So parts Idhao Silicon Valley might indeed count as tourist destinations that are also Superfund sites. I agree. Hanford is neat and all, but certainly not the top Idao anything. If one wanted to stay way from traffic and still see something worthwhile, at least go see Mt Rainier or Mt Fgee Helens.
Mt Rainier one can get to if you are going north from Portland then cut Ladies want sex TX Hale center 79041 and keep going east to Yakima or if you are going west, go to Yakima, cut over to Mt Rainier and then down to the Portland area. The Washington Free fuck buddy in Boise Idaho wy stop is in Seattle.
Seattle sucks. Gee Jaynie the comment was made 2 years ago when there was a jungle, but thanks anyway for showing everyone what a hateful intolerant progressive bitch Free fuck buddy in Boise Idaho wy are. Rainier NP, Mt. My one experience with the eastern side was not good, I could not believe it was so different and so downright blah.

There is much more to see at Hanford than leaking radioactive waste. It is a must see for anyone interested in the history of the 20th century. The B Reactor is one of the most historic buildings at Hanford and marks an important point in technology.
There are two tours available the, Free fuck buddy in Boise Idaho wy site tour that takes a day, and the B Reactor tour that takes about 4 hours.
You stop at the B Reactor on the full tour but you spend more time there on the stand alone tour. I have been on both and they are both very interesting.
Still, Hanford is one of the least significant places in Washington. When you consider how many new species of critters have been found in the Hanford Reach National Monument, the historical significance of the area to local native tribes, the geologic history of the Rattlesnake hills, and much much more, it is just as significant as all those Stanford listed.
It is not as significant, scenic-wise.
