Theoretically yes, though you should start on the East Coast, give you a time zone advantage, plus a lot of small states up in the Northeast. You can actually drive from Virginia to Pennsylvania with only about 5 minutes in Maryland through the neck of MD's panhandle! Its really cool considering VA and PA don't border each other.

It'd be a VERY expensive trip, though. You'd need hook ups to planes (private planes too, to avoid the hassle and wait of commercial flying) and vehicles.

Right, I would start in DC.

Hope you also have access to a good supercomputer in addition to airport rights and your own private jet:

Yeah if you did it how you say, then no it's definitely not possible, even if there was no traffic. But if you had your own jet and flew from state to state, landing at a small airport then taking back off, I don't see how it's not possible.

Don't know how much time you'd be able to rest in between, but if you take off, land, take off, land, take off, land, then I think it can be done.
