On the Road for 17527 Miles

Gregor Weichbrodt, a communication design student from Germany, has created the road trip of my dreams using Jack Kerouac's seminal book, On The Road. "The exact and approximate spots Kerouac traveled and described are taken from the book and parsed by Google Direction Service API. The result is a huge direction instruction of 55 pages. The chapters match those of the original book. All in all, as Google shows, the journey takes 272.26 hours (for 17,527 miles)."

You can buy the print book here (the PDF here) or download it for free, over here. What I'd give to have the time and money to do the whole 17,527 miles.
