This is the countdown!!

 

 

We counted Wal-Mart-truck.jpg on the way here and the winner got a few gifts from Alaska.

 

On the way back, we will be counting Wal-Mart-truck.jpgtrucks.jpg and UPS-DoubleTrailer.jpg Just like the smaller Fedex Trucks, the smaller UPS trucks count too ups_truck.jpg

 

We are counting trailers, so if a truck is pulling 2 trailers, that is 2. If a train has 27 trailers on it that we see, that is 27. The smaller trucks and vans would count as 1

 

This is a great image P1090438-779288.jpg It would count as 2 FedEx and 0 UPS...no trailer.

 

This is the "Intended Route" subject to change:

map2.jpg

 

It begins Friday night at 5:45pm AST when we board the Ferry and arrive in Homer Saturday morning and begin the 5664 miles and 102 hours of actual driving time. The Letters on the map are intended stop points for the day.

 

Some may remember from last time that Wal-Mart trucks are not marked in Canada so we can't normally count them..hint hint..

 

At the moment I'm not sure how we'll determine a winner. Maybe we'll use the algebra thread from the other night and come up with a cool equation.

 

You each get (1) (one) (uno) count_von_count-1-720172.jpg guess at the number. If your post is edited after someone behind you guesses, your guess will be thrown out at 70MPH.gif.

 

Format should be

 

FedEx.... #_________

 

UPS...... #_________

 

Wal-Mart. #_________

 

TOTAL.... #_________

 

Winner will get something to be decided on at a later date lol

 

And yes, we know the number of trucks seen on the trip up, but we are not tellin. It may still be somewhere on the forum :lol

Now, if you were to add how many Direct TV repair trucks you would see on your route, it would be the same as my move from Florida to Arizona. I swear, I saw a dozen a day! :lol And if you were to add how many house/double wide moving trucks you would see, it would be the same as my move from AZ to GA. :lol
