Day 218 / 1492 Miles

Today I reached another waypoint in my journey (one even Christopher Columbus would take note of) which is that, save for one ellipsoid portion in the heart of the city, I will have completed walking all (and more than) I had initially set out to do. As mentioned, this quest was/is a consolation adventure to take the place of my life held desire to walk from Katahdin Maine -to- Springer Georgia on the Appalachian Trail. As you can see, I’ve fallen waaay short of matching that ~2200 mile trek. Therefore, I’ve selected a dozen rural roads in the north, south, east, & west quadrants of our county to stack up more miles in an attempt to reach that peak. Also, I’m still hoping to gain sponsorship to enter and walk Moody AFB. As yet, I’ve had no takers. (But, whatcha gonna do?). Even if I’m granted access to the Base, the cumulative miles of it, combined with the additional county and state byways, will likely fall short of the 700 miles needed. In that case, I’ll just have to be satisfied. Then I’ll know, “just how many holes it takes to fill the Albert Hall”. In that scenario, I see myself muttering a quote from Jack Nicholson in –CooCoo’s Nest- when he tried and failed to lift the marble water stand… “But I tried. GodDammit, I sure as hell did that much. Didn’t I”.
Once again, It’s time to mend some fences. So, I’ll take a break to get that work done and soon I’ll be back Zizzer Zoffing once more.

Lets go for walk
