This week we’re prepping for Spring Break 2013 with a collection of links to road trip related maps & apps for you to enjoy. Some very clever people figured out the optimum route for a 48 state road trip. That’s what we call a ROAD TRIP!

1-1c 48 state road trip

“What good is a 48-state road trip if you end up 2500 miles from where you start? Here’s a 48-state (plus DC) LOOP. It’s 8,125 miles and only 131 hours of drive time.”

At we curate and bring you the best geography and science resources from the web. We hope our sharing will keep you up to date on the latest science and geospatial news.
