DATE: March 22 MILES: 243.9 Still in rural SW Ohio, near Locust Grove, with little to report. Rather than another dull map screen-grab, here I am standing by the fake King Tut statue in Las Vegas. Those are some big feet.
In 2010, I virtually walked from Pittsburgh to Lafitte's, a bar in New Orleans. In 2011, I'm continuing on, heading west across Texas for Las Cruces, New Mexico. My destination there is El Comedor, a Mexican restaurant.
Each day, I apply what I walk to a set of Google map walking directions. From New Orleans to Las Cruces, it's 1,122 miles (45 miles more than the 1,077 I walked last year). Join me as I spend most of the year crossing the widest part of the Longhorn State.
