I only walked/cycled 47.0 miles in December. I ended the month at mile marker 1217.3, about 10 miles from St. Mary, Missouri. It appears that Iím on the outskirts of a city, so Iím curious to see what the road ahead looks like.
Despite my low mileage this month, I made it out of Illinois, crossed the Mississippi River, and am just barely on the Missouri shoreline. It will be awhile before I see Kansas on the horizon.
I have the entire stretch of Missouri ahead of me. The Kansas border is 317.2 miles down the road, and I hope to cross into Kansas by the end of March.
The entire TransAmerica walk is 4,063 miles and I have completed 30% of the walk so far. I have been on this journey for one year now, and my goal is to complete the walk in another two years, arriving on the Pacific coast by December 2014. To accomplish that, I need to walk 119 miles per month, so my goal is to maintain a 120 mile per month pace.
