Google Maps Mania links for 2007-05-24

New York Times Frugal Traveler: American Road Trip (On a Google Map) - New York Times "Frugal Traveller" columnist (Matt Gross) is setting out on a trip around the US with the mission to NOT use major highways. I wonder if Matt has read about the latest Google Maps driving directions feature which gives the option to "Avoid Highways" from the Google Lat Long Blog? :) Matt will be using GPS, photos, videos and blog-style accounts to bring you along on the journey!
