    my mind was always six hundred places

    Three years later, Rick turned to me from this very same spot. “My
    eyes were more open that day than they ever had been with him. I
    loved my son dearly. But until that day, my mind was always six
    hundred places
    . I’d never focused on him one hundred percent.”
    Do you think that this sentence could be improved by including the preposition "in"?

    But until that day, my mind was always in six hundred places.
    In addition, I would add some more information:

    But until that day, my mind was always in six hundred different places at the same time.
    Or was the original sentence fine as it was?

    Thanks.

    It's better with "in" IMO.
