Metric conversion


#1

I converted the meters I was credited with into something more meaningful to me.
The weekly digest says I added 37,421 kilometers.
Is my math right? Is that 2,325.33 miles?
I went over to Pennsylvania, 400 miles each way. I wasn’t able to change cameras when they got full, so some of the trip each way was not covered. I dove over there starting at midnight, most of that trip was too dark to map.
How did I ever cover 2,325 and a third miles this week.
Big numbers are great. But I am having a hard time believing them.

The maths was not really ok :confused:
But totally you have cavered 37421km (or now it is already 37 850km) and that is 23 252mile.

It basically is once around the earth. Well done!

To map (or drive) 23 252 miles in a week, you need an average speed of 140 mph (24/7)

I find it odd that its metric but then dates are in American format (month/day instead of day/month).

I guess things could be changed to be based on the locale.

““I find it odd that its metric but then dates are in American format (month/day instead of day/month).””

I find it strange that they measure in meters rather than in kilometers.
This would be like measuring in yards for us.

I agree too.

Even if a yard comes closest to a meter and a mile comes closest to a kilometer, there is a big difference.
Inch, yard and mile are different lengths.
A kilometer is just another way of saying 1000 meter.
The correct thing is to write everything in meter, but sometimes it is easier to use km, cm or mm.
