Really, a mile is loonngg.....

I started with a two mile walk. I know, it's only two miles, but think about it! The next time you're in a car, measure a mile and see how long it really is. Two miles is two miles and I'm that much closer to San Francisco. I'm at Goodwin's Circle. That means I walked myself right out of town! I'm going to have to get in very good shape to rack up the miles per week to get to SF while I'm still young enough to enjoy it. I don't want to have to do this with a walker. Ha!

Miles remaining: 3,106

In the beginning...

So, here's my idea. It's 3,108 miles from my door to The Golden Gate Bridge. To drive non-stop would take only two days and two hours, but I'm curious as to how long it might take me to walk there? Imagine if I really could? If I didn't have the weather to worry about? ...or dogs? ...or blisters? Well, I printed out a map and I'm about to take the walk of a lifetime! Virtually, of course. Oh, I'll walk the miles, but I'll visit all the states along the way via social media and update you on everything going on there.
