Sometimes you travel the world to get to where you are going…

Jay, one of our students,  was using a visual trace route on his iPad to see how many hops it took to go from Shelbyville, Tn.  to a business in Ohio.

Amazingly he went from – 

Shelbyville, TN
Murfreesboro, TN
Nashville, TN        x3
Los Angeles, Ca    x2
New Orleans, LA
Atlanta, GA
ST. Louis, MO
Atlanta, GA
Los Angeles, CA
Broomfield, IL
Newark, NJ
Munchen, Germany – That’s right Germany…
Detroit, MI
Arrived in Ohio at the Business

21 Hops – How long does it take to go this distance?  About a second.

The internet finds the fastest route.  This doesn’t always mean the shortest.   Which as you can see doesn’t mean the shortest.
