24: Arithmetic Challenge

Choose the path through the grid that you feel will gather the most points. You start out at the bottom with 1 point.

While moving from the starting point to the goal, calculate your score by using the "+", "x", and "-" symbols along the way. Calculate at each step - order of operations is turned OFF for this puzzle.

For example: N-N-N-N-N-N-E-E-E-E-N would earn 54 points. Post your maximum in the comments!

You can cross your own path, but you can't take the same route twice, or return along a path you've already taken.
