    94%. Avg error 10 miles. 300 seconds.

    Just hope it doesnt make you place all the boxy states in the middle first! (wyoming and colorado are hard to get right!)

    Next!

    96%, 5 miles, 331 sec. I wonder if it randomises? The comment about Oklahoma didn't apply for me, as all the surrounding states were in place already. it started me with Utah and finished with South Carolina.

    Here's a different conundrum.

    Let's say that you want to ride a tour through each of the 48 contiguous states.

    You can only pass through each state once.

    If you start in Minnesota, where will you finish?

    Yeah I spent a fair amount of time getting all fiddly and lining them up precisely.

    I agree. The first ten states or so I wasn't very careful at where I placed them. I initially thought close enough would be sufficient, but I was wrong. I then slowed things down a bit toward the end.

    96%, 6 miles, 270sec.

    If you do it more than once, the states come at you in a different order.

    It must because Utah and S. Carolina were among the last ones I placed.
