Ayn Rand Fan 'Paints' Message Over Entire U.S.

I have no idea how this is actually accomplished (I don't own a GPS device), but it's kind of interesting in a weird way.
One man drove 12,238 miles across 30 states to scrawl a message that can only be viewed using Google Earth. His big shoutout: “Read Ayn Rand.”

Nick Newcomen did a road trip over 30 days that covered stretches from the Pacific to the Atlantic Ocean. First, he identified on a map the route he would need to drive to spell out the message. He put a GPS device in his car to trace the route he would follow. Then, he hit the road.
Ok, that's different. And I would have sworn there was nothing new in advertising.
