Jack Kerouac’s On The Road: The driving directions

Gregor Weichbrodt took it upon himself to mark out all the places across America that Jack Kerouac and his friends went to in Kerouac’s novel, On The Road. Next he used Google Directions API to calculate all the directions between the locations, making the series of directions alone a grand tome of 55 pages in all. Apparently, the entire 17,527 miles journey would take, oh, 272.26 hours. Time to rent a car and lots of booze now.
