Re: What stops Americans cruising the world?

some simple math
U.S = 3,794,100 sq. miles ( 9,826,719 sq. km. )
Europe = 3,930,520 sq. miles (10,180,047 sq. km. )

U.S. = 95% same area as Europe

Pt. Barrow Ak 71.2 deg. n. to KaLae KaLae Hawaii 18.54 deg. n. = 3700 miles

Northern most tip of Norway to somewhere in northwest Sudan = 3700 miles

Quite a bit of area to see in one lifetime either way.
