2017 year to date total miles: 333.
Sad your season is ending. We could use all the skaters we can get in this place! Since Facebook became popular, along with Strava and such, this place has become a ghost town.

Skated my 2356th mile year-to-date - the shortest paved distance across the USofA. In other words: I have skated (virtually) across America from Atlantic Beach, Florida to Ocean Beach, California since January 1, 2017.

Not bad at all. But don't stop! You only went shortest route. There is still Portland to Portland and the ultimate coast to coast trek: Anchorage to Key West. Barrow to Key West would be the ultimate trek but there no roads up there.

New York to San Fran is still possible if the weather doesn't screw me too badly. Need about 700 more in 3.5 months. Doable.

Anchorage to Key West...not likely. Maybe next year!

Thanks!
