Take A Walk On The Longest Road In The World

Looking for a fun, interesting journey...here you go.

 

The longest road in the world to walk, is from Cape Town (South Africa) to Magadan (Russia).
No need for planes or boats, there are bridges.
It's 22,387 miles and it takes 4,492 hours to travel.
It would be 187 days walking nonstop, or 561 days walking 8 hours a day.
Along the route, you pass through 17 countries, six time zones and all seasons of the year.

That would be quite an interesting trip.  I wonder if its a road that could be driven or just a path?  I suppose you'd have to carry your food, tent and clothes on your back.  No Holiday Inns on the route.  Maybe do it on horseback with a pack animal?

WOW that's one interesting idea, I can't help but wonder if anyone has actually done it or even tried it.  Maybe Forrest Gump?

It would be a journey of a lifetime.

 

I would think a group doing it together, young but old enough to have a bit of common sense, and sound in mind and BODY. Smiley Happy

 

They could write quite a book on their adventures.
