    Hi Matt:

    Just curious…each day when you walk, do you end up back where you started? Do you park a car all day where you begin, or….? Interesting job of logistics, keeping a record of where you have walked, etc. Keep up the great “work”. Best regards.

      Some days I end up where I started, but other days I don’t. If I’m staying in a new neighborhood, then I can just walk out the door and start on my route, in which case I’ll also try to arrive back at the end of the day on foot. If I take the subway or bus to get to my starting point, I’ll often end up somewhere else at a different station or bus stop. In certain neighborhoods, I have lots of public transportation options, which makes it easier to plan the route. If I drive out to a harder-to-reach area, then I’ll try to end up back at the car. Occasionally I’ll take the subway to my starting point and then catch a ride with someone at the end of the day. Lots of possibilities!

    Thanks Matt. I knew a man who had roller-bladed clear across the USA. And, I talked with a friend yesterday who has ridden his bike clear across the USA, 3-4 times. Continued good luck on your walking adventure. At least if you get lost, you are not too far from help/home. :-)
