Maybe UA can mail buy and mail out copies of the book to 1K and GS members so we can put it on our coffee tables next to the UA coasters...

(A
light second is the distance that light travels in one second. It is exactly 299,792.458 kilometers or about 186,000 miles.)
(The Proclaimers only managed 500 miles, but unclear if that was a segment minimum and not BIS miles)

Entry #2:

Next stop Venus.
(Earth to Venus is on average 25,724,767 miles)

Congratulations on the milestone ua1flyer!
Reminds me of the Plimsouls', "A Million Miles Away", which could be a good book title.

Also, since there are 23 chromosome pairs in the human genome, you could have a title like "23 Million Miles-It's In My DNA".
