In our September 5, 2010 issue (ten weeks ago), I wrote about a one dollar "Where's George" bill I'd gotten in change earlier in the week. I duly logged it on the Where's George web site which tracks dollar bills by serial number.
Well, on Wednesday Where's George notified me by email that the bill have been sighted again, this time in Fort Lauderdale, FL. It had traveled 902 miles in a little over 73 days (12 miles/day). I wish I'd followed along - it's warmer down there.
Below is an image of the report on the Where's George web site (
). So... who else has used Where's George lately? What's the longest journey one of your bills has taken?
