There are better solutions than 84860:

Wow, I'm impressed about your ability to find that fast a very good solution. I don't know the perfect value. But 84860km seems to be a very short distance for the 24 places.

Of course I want to try to write my own code. But it would be interesting for me which algorithm you used. Until now I did not have success with the Graph module. See Re^3: Travelling problem

Now I'll try the minimal hamilton path.

I'm using a genetic algorithm (based loosely on Re^15: Divide array of integers into most similar value halves (Updated)), it gets close very quickly, but has no guarantee to ever find the best. Nor any guarantees about the quality of what it does find. (Nor even any criteria by which to judge that.)

It took less than a minute to find 86850, but much, much longer to refine that to 84860.

I threw the implementation I've been using together late last night and it is pretty crude and messy. Once I've cleaned it up I'll post it.

Ignore this!. Programmer error! There are better solutions than 84860:

No, your lists only contain 23 items

I'll update above also.
