Mapquest meme

Gacked from several:

1. Go to Mapquest.com
2. Click on "Directions"
3. Enter your current address and the address of your childhood home (or at least the town if you don't remember the exact address)
4. Put the time and distance in a post like this.
5. Don't forget to repost these directions. (Not the door to door ones).

For me:
Total Est. Time: 3 hours, 45 minutes Total Est. Distance: 213.84 miles

It's a lot further than that in terms of culture. <g>

Maximum it has been was for 2 years in graduate school:
Total Est. Time: 15 hours, 57 minutes Total Est. Distance: 930.76 miles

For my father, Mapquest won't do it. YahooMaps says: 0.0 miles, blank travel time, with detailed directions of:
1. Start at 617 3RD ST - go < 0.1 mi
2. Arrive at 605 3RD ST, on the Left
