They go long distances on foot. Running, jogging, walking. Some for a cause, others for different reasons. Some make no mention of why. Men, women and children do this. Some use a cart, others a backpack. Few are supported by vehicle.
With cars, trucks, and bicycles, why would anyone walk several hundred and sometimes several thousand miles. Well, we would have to ask each, that question.
When these folks finish, I’ve heard some express the desire to go again.
I’ve met a few of these travelers. Never met a nicer group. Learned something from each.
Each one an individual. Each one with a story.
