Aye, I'm bored.

 

Using this http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/ and determining the distance between my hoose and the ground we played at, I was able to figure out that I've travelled 4844 miles to watch the Dons this season.

 

So who else is going to waste the afternoon before a long weekend doing the same? :thumbsup:

 

haha!

 

I started doing this after reading that anti-aberdeen thread on Pie & Bovril, as someone's signature said they'd travelled 15,000 miles following St. Johnstone, i'm 99% sure you're link is gonna make this easier!

Incidentally, that's where the idea came from. :thumbsup:

 

actually it must be more than that as that shitty website has just drawn a straight line between my flat and pittodrie

 

I did just use 'as the crow flies' distances.

 

Couldn't be arsed with actual road/rail distances. ;D

That took far too long. Domestic distances are from the AA route planner and European ones from the site The Chimp linked.

 

Away games from when staying in Aberdeen = 1647.8 miles (there and back)

Away games from when staying in Dundee = 880.8 miles (there and back)

Home games from when staying in Dundee = 1356 miles (there and back)

 

European games:

Aberdeen - Amsterdam - Kiev - Dnipro = 3570.95

Dundee - Glasgow - Brussels - Madrid = 2759.43

Aberdeen - London - Munich = 1942.62

= 8273 miles (there and back)

 

which is a total of about 12,158 miles

All home games, plus trips to Edinburgh, Cove, Munich and Madrid only came to 4638 miles as the crow flies.  :-[

 

Both ways?

 

Using the site in the first post Dundee - Edinburgh is only 30 odd miles, but on the aa route planner site it's just over 60. That's why I used it instead for the domestic ones.

Do you wave flags and bang a drum at matches? If not then you've got a bit to go to be the top red.

I used google maps to do mine, and was quite conservative (I never included the trip to the pet shop in Dortmund).

 

Domestic games: 2,038

Madrid: 2,266

Munich: 1,715

 

= 6019

 

I estimate a normal trip to Pittodrie is 274miles return, not been up that often outwith the UEFA games this season.
