Re: New subway riding record attempt

Bill... I figured out that you were relying on Hopstop to plan the route.

Does the Guinness rules have anything to say about communication devices that are allowed? Like could you communicate by cellphone with colleagues with supercomputers who could give you assistance?

I remember reading that you were grateful that several transit workers were friendly and helpful. Did you notify the MTA in advance of your planned ride? Any problems with the transit police?

I'm also surprised that few people here have shown much interest in your ride. A group of posters here took part in a ride that was filmed by Discovery Times a couple of years ago. In my opinion, their ride was impeded by having to wait for camera people to keep up with the group.

Also, your ride required you to stop at every station, yet your total time was not that different from the 2 guys in August. Were they operating inefficiently?

Also, had there been a major disruption in service that would have prevented you from stopping at all stations, would you have aborted the trip at that point?
