Yesterday, the labyrinth arrived close to the final downstream course of the mighty Mississippi, a thousand miles or so south from where we began our journey in St. Paul, MN, ten months ago. Since then, we’ve made landfall in 25 states (plus the capital). This must be about half way, right?
Well, no. In fact, far from it! The distances across individual states from this point forward get much longer, the gaps between cities more frequent. There is still a very long way to go.
But seeing the Mississippi again, and having returned to Central Time some days ago (along our route, CT began in the far west of the panhandle of Florida), I felt that we’d reached a not insignificant milestone.
