Global passenger travel by light-duty vehicles, bus, rail, and two- and three-wheeled vehicles reached nearly 24 trillion passenger miles in 2012 (the most recent year with detailed international travel statistics). In 2012, the average person traveled 3,300 miles annually, with wide differences across countries that are generally related to differences in per capita income.
The simple global average masks the diversity of passenger travel worldwide: people in countries in the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) travel nearly five times as much as people in non-OECD regions. Even within OECD member countries, travel can vary widely; average annual passenger travel in the United States is double that of the other OECD countries. The passenger-miles metric reflects both the number of passengers and the distance those passengers travel.
In 2012, the 1.2 billion people in OECD countries traveled about 11.0 trillion passenger miles, averaging more than 9,000 miles of travel per person in 2012. The 6 billion people in non-OECD countries traveled about 12.6 trillion passenger miles, averaging slightly more than 2,000 miles of travel per person.
The United States and OECD Europe, each with a relatively high per capita GDP, had the most passenger travel in 2012, with 4.1 and 4.3 trillion passenger miles, respectively. Within the non-OECD regions, China had the most passenger travel, with 2.9 trillion passenger miles. In comparison with the OECD average, China's passenger travel is distributed more evenly between light-duty vehicles, bus, rail, and two- and three-wheeled vehicles. China and India, with large populations and significant passenger rail infrastructure, were the largest users of passenger rail, at approximately 700 billion passenger miles each.

Astonishingly, given that the record company blurb was hailing the 20-bit digital mixes that Wilder was supposed to have performed, he actually did all the edits in analogue, using razor blades on his two-track mixdowns. Wilder gave the lowdown: "Most of Macero's edits were well done and not difficult to replicate. There was no benefit in putting everything in the Sonic Solutions. Instead of building things up piece by piece in the Sonic Solutions, we were doing it live in analogue. That gives you a much cleaner signal path, and makes it easier to bring out the liveness of the performances. I did use the Sonic Solutions a lot on the Miles & Gil boxed set, because, on Miles Ahead, there were orchestral sessions on which Miles only played certain sections. They were recorded to stereo, and they later overdubbed him on the missing sections, but in doing so reduced the orchestra to mono." "So, with the computer, I was able to strip off Miles' overdubbed solos and paste them into the original stereo orchestra tracks, cutting the solos up and moving the phrases around, so that the phrasing is still accurate and in time with the orchestra. That was strange and very hard work. But, for the Bitches Brew box, we did only a few edits in Sonic Solutions, and mostly I edited the two-track tape mix. I then mastered that straight to a 24-bit [Sony] PCM9000 MO recorder, using a mastering technique called AB, where you have two sets of EQs, compressors, gain stagers and so on, and run the master live, and add effects using a move list."
Most recently, I completed a 99-day thru-hike of the Continental Divide Trail. I began my hike at Crazy Cook on 5/10/22 and ended it at Chief Mountain on 8/16/22, averaging 25.7 miles per day over 2,550+ miles. (I was unable to complete the section between Cuba, NM, and Cumbres Pass, CO, due to fire closure. The rest remains a continuous footpath.) I intentionally started my hike later than most, accepting the late spring heat of New Mexico in exchange for more favorable conditions in Colorado and beyond.
After a couple thousand miles the shocks seemed to have loosened up in general, and the differences in settings were much more perceptible. This is also why we had to wait to do our review after about 5k miles, to make sure we had a good sense of wear-in.
The RS9000XL shock is the only budget-friendly adjustable shock option available for most heavy duty and light duty trucks, and by budget friendly, we mean sub-$500 for a set of 4. The next closest adjustable option is the Fox 2.0 CD Adjustable Reservoir setup, which come in around $1200 for the set. Its safe to say that Rancho is filling a big gap in the market right now, and has been for the past couple of decades with this shock.
I drove out to Leadville three weeks before race day, partially to acclimatize to 10,000 feet of elevation where the race takes place, but also to get an up-close look at some of the hardest sections of the course. Hope Pass, an exposed and windy high point of 12,500 feet is climbed twice during the race, at miles 45 and 55. This section can be daunting, so I specifically wanted to train there for the climbs. In the weeks before the race, I covered over 90% of the out and back route. I felt comfortable with the terrain and ready to run.
Twin Lakes, the next major checkpoint at mile 38, is the gateway to Hope Pass and the midway turnaround at Winfield. Here I changed shoes and exchanged my handhelds for a running vest and poles in preparation for the 20 miles of steep ascent and descent ahead. Going up and over Hope Pass was seamless and felt just as good as it had in training just a couple of weeks earlier. The weather held out and was even sunny as I came back over the pass on my return. I grabbed some warm broth, said hello to the llamas (yep, they pack in the supplies for the Hope Pass aid station!), and skipped my way back down to Twin Lakes, eager to pick up my pacer, Pete at mile 62.
About two miles into the climb, I heard an unusual noise in the distance. A loud horn of some sort, like a Nordic call to battle. I wondered for a moment if I was hallucinating. But no, as we neared the top of Powerline, neon glowsticks led the way to a pop-up disco party complete with a bar, thumping music, and plenty of dancing, whooping volunteers. We had arrived at Space Camp. As curious as I was to stop and say hello, my pacer urged me to keep moving. I will say that Space Camp was a very welcome surprise, and I commend the fine folks who manned that aid station. [Note: we want photos next time!]
Maintaining your vehicle with frequent oil changes (every 3,000 - 5,000 miles) and engine tune-ups (10,000 - 15,000 miles) will serve as prevention against many common motor vehicle problems as well as maximize your car's performance.
Most of us believe we can control when we fall asleep. But the reality is, sleep is not voluntary. You can't shake it off with caffeine. You can't stave it off with loud music. And you can't hold it off simply by cracking the window for fresh air. Fact is, if you're drowsy at the wheel, you can fall asleep and never even know it; called "micro-sleeps," these brief naps last only four to five seconds. And when you're cruising along at 55 miles an hour, the tiniest nap can be fatal.

The fatal accident rate for night driving is nearly three times greater than for daytime driving, despite the fact that there are less miles driven at night. It's good practice to drive slower at night because overall visibility is much more restricted.
He normally drives about 34 miles per day for 5 days per week and does this for 49 weeks per year. Twenty-five percent of this driving is done under highway conditions and the rest is city driving. His other trips, taken over the weekends and on his three vacation weeks, amount to 4,000 miles with 50% of that done on the highway.
The Army and Marine Corps both assume that most long-range strikes will be carried out by air. They both also have attack helicopters that can perform long-range strikes. During the Cold War, the Army fielded several types of ballistic missiles, culminating in the Pershing II, which had a range of about 1,800 km (1,120 miles) and carried a nuclear weapon. After ratification of the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) treaty with the Soviet Union in 1988, however, the Army was required to destroy all surface-to-surface missiles with ranges above 500 km (310 miles). The United States has withdrawn from the INF treaty, and the Army is exploring new systems that would again allow it to field missiles capable of striking beyond 500 km.14 781b155fdc
