Cut road trips in half with MeetWays

Want to find the exact midpoint of a big road trip, or simple cross-town schlep? Check out Meetways--it does the hard work for you.

It's a 3-day weekend for some of us (thanks Columbus!), and oil is now under $80 a barrel. In other words, it's the perfect time for a road trip. If you're thinking about organizing an impromptu meet-up with far away friends, organizing a Craigslist buy, or just need to find a fair location for a child custody swap, you should check out MeetWays, a service that helps you find the a perfect mid-point.

Setting up a trip is very simple, you just plug in your address and the other person's and it picks the nearest freeway or main-road friendly midpoint. That way one person doesn't have to drive farther than the other, and there's no need for a calculator to do the math.

Besides finding the proper town for you to stop in, you can also have the service narrow down what types of places you'd like to meet. The entire system is built off of Google Maps, so you can dig a little deeper to get directions and reviews. It's also worth noting it's U.S. only for now.
