Stats: days of travelling not correct

Travel Forums System Talk Stats: days of travelling not correct

Hi there
I was wondering why the counter for days of travelling is not working right. My trip startet at 29. April 2012 and by now I should have 88 days of travelling, but in the stats its only 80. I checked it with following site Count days

Anyone else having this problem?

Hi Anzo,

The day calculations can be a bit off - it's adding up each stop that you go on. That causes some problems over long trips. For example, when you have dates like this

29 Jun 2012 - 29 Jun 2012
30 Jun 2012 - 03 Jul 2012

The first one counts as 0 days you see, like a stopover, so a day has gone missing there in the calculations

Instead, I guess the better option is to find the latest date in a trip and the earliest date in a trip and make the calculations between that. Definitely something we need to improve on.

Hi AnZo, just a heads up, I've fixed this up now so the numbers are accurate. It lines up with the site you referred to before also.
