I walked 1.27 Miles to My Gate at Dulles

Posted by Tyler Muth on July 23, 2008

This week a colleague (Chris Beck) and I flew to Boston to meet with a customer. Those of you familiar with Washing Dulles Airport know that you can walk to the “B” gates now via an underground tunnel.  We were at gate B64, which is in a new section of the B gates and one of the farthest points from the tunnel exit. While the walk was great exercise, it seemed like it took forever to get there, so just out of curiosity, I checked out the distance via GMaps Pedometer.  Here’s a direct link to my route if you’re interested.

Don’t forget the additional distance for the turnstiles going through security with the ever increasing security lines.

    Have a good one,
    Matt
