Walking

What’s the longest you’ve ever walked in a single day?

Write about what happened, how far you walked, and whether it was by choice, or something happened that forced you to travel differently than you expected.

I have done my share of day-long hikes, but that usually means a fair amount of terrain to deal with, as well as altitude gain, so it’s harder to cover much distance in a day. But there was one time I dropped my car off to get new tires or something, and Mu (my dog) and I walked across Truckee and then meandered around Donner Lake, so that couldn’t have been much more than ten miles, but in the summer sun, it was quite the workout.

It’s funny to think that on a bike, you can do forty miles in a day, easy. & in a car, you can go hundreds of miles, but a day on foot is quite limiting!
