Miles Traveled - Earth to Moon

Tracking the miles I traveled to get a haircut from my home to the specific barbershop is quite revealing. Many miles have been traveled in personal automobiles, rental cars and/or airplanes. The miles are calculated as if I drove from my home to the barbershop destination. The following summarizes the distances traveled in the United States and how this mileage would compare to other potential "road trips" from a Point A to a Point B:

  • Total one way mileage to date:  119,450
  • Total round trip mileage to date:  238,901
  • Miles traveled the distance from Canada to Mexico: 1,650 = 145 times
  • Miles traveled the distance from West Coast to East Coast:  2,802 = 85 times
  • Miles traveled the distance from the farthest southwest point of the country to the farthest northeast point: 3,395 = 70 times
  • Miles traveled the distance from the farthest northwest point of the country to Key West, the southeast point: 3,561 = 67 times
  • North Pole to South Pole, a distance of 8,595 miles = 28 times
  • Around the World, a distance of 24,901 miles = 10 times
  • One way trip to the Moon, a distance of 238,900 miles = 1 trip
