Illinois by Easter
Friday, September 19, 2014
Earlier this week on my virtual trek across the country I crossed 800 miles. I am now at 804.8 miles. This got me to thinking about when I would reach 1,000 miles, not quite 1/4 of the way across the county.
When I did some checking I discovered I am about 280 miles from Illinois. After calculating I discovered I should be able to reach Illinois by Easter (April 5, 2015) at my present pace.
I decided not to set a goal that would mean a push since we are heading into the winter months and the last few years winter here has been wet and snowy.
So I may have enough of a challenge keeping up my current pace of about 10 miles a week. But I intend to be in Illinois by Easter.
