Peter McConneville set out from Austin on a trip with his friends Pavel Krishtof, also from Austin, and Abdullah Salah from Minneapolis, where the men began their journey in Vermont and their goal was to take the record from Thomas Cannon and Justin Morris, who visited all 50 states with a time of 5 days 16 hours and 20 minute.


The trio began their journey by car before switching to air travel for their trip to Alaska and Hawaii, completing the trip with a final time of 5 days, 13 hours and 10 minutes.

"I can't even describe what that experience was like, not only because we were so tired, but we saw so much at once, " McConville told KXAN-TV . "Honestly I've seen the best sunrise of my life. It was amazing."

Guinness World Records suspended its speed travel record class in 1996 to discourage speeding or reckless driving, but McConville and his friends are now listed as speed record holders by the All Fifty States club.
