    Ok, I haven't done a lif in a while, so here goes.

    I will be going on vacation this Saturday. My family and I are driving pretty much cross country, and I will be visiting at least 4 breweries along the way. I will be zeroing out my odometer when I leave my garage. Questions:

    With out going over, how many miles will I travel in total on my trip?
    How many states will I travel through?

    The winner will receive at least one beer from each brewery I visit, plus a local of my choice, most likely something from ccb. I return back to florida on the 14th of July, so this is a rather long trip. I will announce the winner on the 15th and that will be the day the box goes out.

    If you know me, you're not eligible. Lower 48 only please. Happy guessing!

    I will give hints. I will periodically check in with my location. You can guess again after each hint. Oh, and if you win, traditional lif rules apply, you should start your own lif within a reasonable amount of time.
