I have a desire to tour the US on my recumbent trike. Either on this Deltawolf or another yet to be built trike. I just saw something on TV that, for me, kind of put some distance in perspective. What the scroll bar at the bottom of the screen was saying is “it’s further from El Paso, TX to Dallas. TX than El Paso, TX to Needles California”.
Google Maps did not confirm that to be true. Google Maps has the opposite to be true by 11 miles. When I go through El Paso on the beginning of my tour, I will consider El Pase half way to California.
