    Yes, I did make a mistake. Forgot that I plotted the last leg at
    double the scale of the other two. The corrected total distance is
    3239 miles, just 13 miles different from the right answer. If you ask
    me, 0.4% error is good considering that I plotted the trip on pieces
    of typing paper.
    With the corrected distance, my E-6B gives 13.4 days for time enroute.
