So someone on Slashdot made the drive to Oregon, recorded every minute of it and processed the footage so that we could see it all in exactly six minutes or an equivalent speed of 6953mph, or mach 9.13.
Now, more than ever, I am glad I took PCH and the 101. I can handle the journey up the 5 for six minutes but I don't know if I could hang with it for 16 hours. I say that now that it's over of course. Had you asked me around the time I was trudging across 299 East which road I would prefer to travel on, the 5 would have won hands down.
