The Subtle Art of Walking

Day 22:
It takes a good bit of time to walk these high miles.  Yesterday, it took nine hours to walk 23 miles.  Another day, it took 12 hours to walk 18 miles.  So how do we get anything else done?  We learn to walk and do practically everything else simultaneously!  My (otherwise fairly useless) new specialized skillset now goes way beyond being able to just walk and chew gum at the same time.  Now I can eat lunch, prepare a snack, drink, navigate, find water, make shade with my umbrella, take off my jacket, apply sunscreen, and dictate thoughts for this blog.  This is “man– the learning animal” at it’s best!

Note how my friends House and Sugar have set themselves up for a convenient day of walking, every need in momentum hands’ reach.
