Like the old song says: "I'm on my way to New Orleans this morning / leaving out of Nashville, Tennesee." Of course, that lucky fella was on a bus. I'm still walking, and it's full-on Deep South HOT here and there.
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.
