i hope this is the proper way to log a trip.
i did this excursion, and the result is shown. i will add food stops as i find the receipts.
my odometer showed more than three thousand miles beyond what i had logged here!
let me know what you think.

That's a lot more detail than I usually use. I only put in major sightseeing or activity stops, not where we got gas and visited shops. I'm not sure why, probably because it doesn't seem important to me and I wouldn't return to a specific gas station or shop unless I found something really unusual.

As far as getting the mileage you actually logged, if you choose "Primary Transport Mode" as car and "Available Routes" as Drive, TP sort of follows the roads and you get a more accurate version of the mileage. If you don't do this, it assumes you are flying so the mileage is as the crow flies. On a trip this long, that might lose you 3000 miles. It might be worth a try to change your settings just to see if it affects the mileage.

Interesting trip, but you missed a lot of my favorite places. Are you planning another one?

Looking at your map it seems you didn't change the settings to car and drive route. Another thing when you map out two point even if you put the settings to car and drive route it doesn't always follow the actual road you took, so I find I sometimes have to find the map co- ordinates of the middle of the road and plot that just to force it to follow the road I actually took. It would be easier if the map feature had a the drag the route function that Google Maps has.

thanks for the feedback both of you!
yes, this is my first time logging on tp.
the purpose of this trip was twofold: 1. to garner as many counties and roads as possible in the allotted time (mostly succeeded though severely truncated as pointed out in the pre-trip); and 2. run in the bare to breakers (failed).
i will add a number of points to the route, where i biked. those were mostly in san fran, but i also used the bart to go to berkeley and back.
one of my chief frustrations with the site is the inability to pinpoint my location. i was unable to say, for example, “nm-193 @ u[s]-64/87” which would have been the exact point. instead, i had to list a town near that intersection. (there were many such examples.)
i plan to take out the counties in the eastern states next month, and return to the southwest in the winter, saving the northern states for next year (montana in winter is not a place i want to visit!).
i should add that you can see all the counties i have visited [http://www.mob-rule.com/user/naked_driver[here]]. the site i used to log my highway conquests is currently down having been deprecated, and another is taking over. the new one uses a different style and i have yet to bring my file up to date on it. when i do, i will post that link here also.
i should add that, whenever i shopped or walked any distance more than a few metres, i logged this on [http://www.dailymile.com/people/davethebaref[dailymile.com]] where i am “barefoot runner”. (i cannot figure out how to insert links here; when i find out, will edit that to make it work.)
