Map of the Week - Challenging Counties

One of the perks of membership in the Extra Miler Club ("the shortest distance between two points is no fun") is that they send you maps. These people are obsessed with counties and visiting as many as possible, if not all of them (in the USA). Scott Zillmer, an EMC member made this map of "Challenging Counties" - counties that are difficult to reach.

There are two categories. Most challenging counties are in black while local challenges are in gray. The challenge factor considers accessibilty and connectivity. Island and peninsula counties have connectivity challenges while accessibility is a problem for counties with few or difficult roads. Distance is varies by your locality so it was not included as a factor.
I will be travelling later today and will eventually be heading for one of the gray ones that I still don't have. Hopefully I'll make it safely to Dushore, PA. Wish me luck!
