Where else could my dog and I have driven 5300 miles to?

There are a plethora of "calculate distance between point a and point b" websites. But, what if I want to find out the geographic circumference of a circle with radius 5300 miles? So, essentially I want to pretend I can drive across any surface (earth, water, space etc) in a 5300 mile straight trajectory from point US zipcode 48912. Where would I be? If not that specific then how about a calculation of 5300 miles = the linear distance between commonly known point a and commonly know point b.
Back story for those interested:
Spent my two week holiday break driving all over hell (MI to northern CA, northern CA to NM, NM to MI) with my dog. Ended up logging 5300+ miles. I can understand it in terms of the path I took. I want to try to conceptualize this many miles in the terms of other distances. I realized it was a long distance while watching the rose bowl parade and al roker noted that the hawaiian h.s. marching band had traveled 2400 miles and the ecuadorian band had gone a 2100 miles by bus. i would have preferred to have "driven" to either of these places.
