    Fox, are you working on this yet? Anyone else?

    If so, I'd like to compare mileages, if you're interested. You only get one guess per day, so it really can't hurt us! Plus it will help once all 12 clues are in on Thursday. I've pinpointed today's 3 locations, but my total daily mileages vary based on using either Google Maps, Yahoo Maps, or MapQuest.

    I tried to find out what map service Budget uses or may be partnered with, but came across nothing (the service they use on their site for directions to their locations is called "True North"--which I believe is proprietary).

    Becareful using the mapquest and such mileage
    calculators....

    The clues give you a specific route to follow
    which is not necessarily the most economical.

    From point one to two today, the mileage can very
    eleven miles depending on the route.

    The trip from two to three is much more cut and dry.

    I grew up in the area between one and two, so
    I noted the video clues.

    Also, I think the clues provided after the videos,
    help to know the destinations for the rest of
    the week...

    enchilada, cranium, etc...

    Also, since thins is being sponsored jointly
    by Budget and Weird New Jersey, I suspect
    all points would have been featured in a weird New Jersey
    piece... most can be found on-line as a
    Weird article.

    Day one down, one guess down, timing is important.

    How many guesses do you get per week? And do they take your best guess of the week or do they take the most recent one? I couldn't find that in the rules...

    You get one guess per day, Mon - Thur--so 4 per week. The winners are the first 3 people who submit the correct mileage.
