Why 48 in 96?

Ted and I have always named each of our drives. The first attempt to break the 48 State Drive record was called, “America Drive in Five.” Our Guinness record for driving through the 48 states using the least amount of fuel was called “The Think Tank Tour”. Our 48 State Drive to break our existing “time” record, and to dismiss the article written by the editor for Car and Driver Magazine, we named, “100 or Bust”. Our goal was to beat the century mark. “48 in 96” is the name of our June, 2010 trip. Ninety-six hours is that magical and elusive “4 day” mark that we’d love to beat. If for some reason we do not beat that 96 hour time, “48 in 96” will be our theme from this point forward as we will continue to re-map and re-strategize to drive through the 48 states in less than four days. We will not quit until it is accomplished.

  1. Ya'll are crazy! What's the point? So you do it...big deal? You just spent all your time on the road. How fun is that?

  2. That is a great question. Competition. I have always been a big fan of competing against myself. In athletics, in business, and in other areas of my life. Jay and Ted are the same way. We love this competition and running a race against a clock. Why do some people run marathons, or why do some people play golf on the weekends. Possibly it is for the thrill of the competition. Not to mention the fact that Jay and Ted are the current Guinness World record holders of the event and want to protect their record.
