409 Miles in Only 4 Days

Record #:
Gaines describes a 1910 trip led by Dr. Stuart McGuire, a Richmond, Virginia physician, from Richmond to Raleigh and back. Fourteen cars, traveling at fifteen miles an hour, made the 409 mile drive in four days. This was accomplished in a time when there were no road signs, no reliable road maps, no paved roads, no service stations, and no McDonald's or Hardee's.
