Life Map

OK, the new multi-destination directions at Google maps inspired me to create a new meme. If this ripples through the Blogosphere, you heard it here first. (Like no one else will think of this.)

I went to Google Maps and entered in every place I've lived. I've lived in 17 locations in 3 states and 5 metro areas. This map is the result. You can see it on Google here.

That's every address I've lived in since I was a few months old. I don't know the address of that first apartment, besides it was pretty close to the Watson Ave home I lived in for my first 8 1/2 years. Most are approximations because I couldn't remember the exact address and a couple are deliberately vague as folks I love still live there.

According to Google, the journey that took me 39 years is 2,394 mi and can be traversed in about 1 day and 16 hours. I guess I'm just slow.

What's your Life Map look like? Go to Google Maps and create yours. Post a link in the comments or put it up on your own blog if you've got one. Leave us a comment here (or a trackback) though so we can go see it.

Interesting meme you've started here, Doug! Here's the link to My Life Map.

My wife and I did hers, check it out.

1,305 miles (about 23 hours 15 mins). I've got her beat on mileage, but she's got 5 states to my 3. :-D

Well, you asked for it

(And, as I was typing this, I overheard our 11 year old tell a friend on the phone, in a pretty good stoner accent, "It's a conspiracy, man." I don't want to know. LOL!)

9,460 mi (about 6 days 1 hour) Show off.

Seriously, that's a pretty impressive map. I stand in awe of your traveling ways.

Oh, and on the conspiracy comment, you need to see Cars and pay attention to the dialog between the VW microbus and the Jeep. As a hint, George Carlin plays the VW.

Funny. Michigan and Ohio seem to be a theme around here...
