US 10,000 Mile Challenge


You have 15 min or 10K miles to travel the 48 states trying to total the highest total population of 50K+ cities visited. Naming notes: a handful of cities have the same names or must be entered to enter a longer city name…enter the city name followed by state abbreviation for these (i.e. ‘springfieldmo’ or ‘wichitaks’ (due to Wichita Falls, TX)) – for a handful you will need to just add a ‘.’ at the end of the city name, such as ‘miami.’. Therefore if a city isn’t working add the state abbr or period to the end of it, as it has one of these conflicts.

Enter guesses above to begin.


  1. Okay, the 2010 Census data is really throwing me off. San Marcos, TX has 54K people as of 2013, but the 2010 census gave it only 45K people. This is a particular problem since there is also a San Marcos in California, and I was taking a nice jaunt down I-35 in Texas when I involuntarily ended up in California.

  2. Are the city populations based on “hard” 2010 census data? If so, this causes problems when researching the populations of rapidly growing southern (Texas) suburbs s/a Cedar Park, TX which has grown to 59,200 by 2013 estimates.
