New Year got me somehow delayed on the route map updates. Here's the latest one, after sol 2468 drive.

Looking at Doug's post regarding Oppy from above on Dec 31st 2010, I can see you were still right till then.
Happy New Route Eduardo!

Looks to me that after sol 2468 drive Opportunity could have surpassed total distance traveled by Apollo 16 Lunar Rover (LRV16)

LRV16 26.55 km 16.5 mi

Sol 2464 26.51 km 16.47 mi

Opportunity only needed 40 meters to accomplish that, and looks like drive on sol 2468 was little more (?) than that.

Yeah, Scott tweeted that Oppy had passed that milestone a couple of days ago.

I missed that somehow even though I have RSS feed of his Tweets.

Perhaps Tesheiner could put some sort of marker on his route map ....

Very nice, James. Your map with 100 sol increments really puts the journey into perspective. smile.gif

Opportunity's total odometry must be approaching the 'as the crow flies' distance to Endeavour from the landing site.

Paxdan,

I'll have first dig at this (but I suspect guys like Climber and the other regular posters on the statistical threads will be able to give you a better answer) but I think the point you mention was passed by Oppy a long time ago. By looking at the map put up a couple of posts ago (and thank you to James Canvin for them) I would estimate that Cape York is approximately 20kms from the landing site whereas she has travelled well over 26kms.

And, well, 26 km. is counted in straight-line increments. When we count all the little squiggles in between (looking at odometry) we probably get a figure which is a good deal bigger. Minus the turning-in-place-bits of Jammerbugt and elsewhere.

But 26+ km is the odometry. So it should include all of the little movements, no?

I think it's time to start updating the route map once again.
Here it is, up to sol 2519 (thisol), and the corresponding KML file for Google Earth. Take a close look to the GE version because you will find a new layer named "Opportunity Calendar Dates" made by Emily Lakdawalla and containing placemarks for the first day of every quarter since the rover left Victoria. It should be enough to figure out roughly when on Earth's calendar Opportunity was at any given location on the map.
