I'm not going to win this competition. Seoul to Busan (i.e. Keijo to Fusan) is four hours in good traffic, which is admittedly rare. I did my honeymoon in Arizona and Nevada (Phoenix, Grand Canyon and Vegas) in a rental car and the missus, who is Korean, was pretty blown away by the distances and open spaces.

Have a great Memorial Day back there, and remember those who the holiday commemorates.

Cheers,
CC

To us Brits, thats just an insane drive.

Thats from Lands End to John O'Groats, give or take a few miles


A lot of Uropeens have that problem. When I worked at a hotel in New York City, we had several cases of visitors missing important appointments because they failed to realize that Boston is as far from New York as Hamburg from Berlin. It's such a small distance on a map of the US!


That can work both ways.

A couple I know was vacationing in England, and they plotted out a driving tour of the lake district. Looking at the map, they thought the drive would take most of the day.

Yet, when they finished their route and arrived back at their hotel, it wasn't yet noon.

From the tip of the peninsula to the tip of the panhandle is quite the drive in Florida as well.
The states are big!
Well most of em anyway...Rhode Island, New Jersey and Delaware really don't count.


I tried to dimension it for my Spanish opponent recently.

Minnesota is 86,943 sq miles.

Spain is 195,364 sq. miles.

Minnesota is not a particularly large state. Twelfth.

Alaska is 663,267 sq. miles.

Alaska just edges out Manitoba at 649,947 square miles. Of course if you deduct the area of our 80,000 lakes we have a lot less living space!

If they try that on a lovely day, it will take all day!

Live less than an hour away from the Lakes, and when we go there, we go early, or you can't park and get stuck in massive traffic jams. Well worth it though!

If i drive from my home in Columbia, SC, to my parents in North Central Illinois, I can do it alone in 12 hours. If I take my wife and 2 kids, it's 20 hours and an overnight stay at a hotel.

Had to drive from Nashville to Naples, FL one time...and I thought Georgia was a freakishly long state. Once we hit the Florida state line, we thought we were home free.....then 16 hours later, we arrive.

As a kid, we use to walk through the woods down to the "Old Road" where around 10 old cars and trucks had been left. We would each pick a vehicle get in it and drive all over the world.

Good one. I have not seen that movie.

I shan't moan quite so much about driving from Kent to Cornwall this summer having read some of the above posts,however the pain of the A303 past Stonehenge has to be experienced to be believed.

Mitigation will be the opportunity to stop off at the fleet Air Arm museum at Yeovil which is always worth a trip. Last time I was there they were building a barracuda using a combination of original spares and replicas as no original airframe still exists.
