86%, 35 Miles, 391 seconds (Special thanks to the employee wanting to actually discuss work.)

BTW - The changing state order sort of makes score comparison invalid.

True. Its tough to place those inside states with no point of reference.

Yeah, no kidding. On my third (and final) try: 96%, 4 miles and 240 seconds. Just a little bit of refamiliarization of state locations, plus the different order, makes a world of difference.


Anyone else think the relative sizes thing is pretty hilarious. Rhode Island is a freaking microscopic dot... Then you get Texas or Alaska...

That was horsecrap ... I was off by like a milimeter on FL and KS and it didn't count it. Totally bogus.

That being said, 80%, avg. error 56 miles (which shows how picky that thing is) and in 180 seconds.

I'll be I can tell you all the state capitals for bonus points ...

Putting Nevada in that big open space was tricky.

98% 1 Mile 539 Seconds. Started off with Missouri, damn its hard to place one of those right on the line, I think I missed it by 5 miles, just NW a little too far. Everything else was right on the dot.

1st try: 88% 34 miles 535 sec


edit:

2nd try: 88% 29 miles 303 sec


really depends on which states they ask for first... if they pick something in the middle with no edge guides it's tough. but if they give you a couple of edge states to start with it helps alot.
