I’ve been continuing the walking I described in Pandemic walks, and have now completed 300 such walks, 1648 miles. Walking new streets every day, but from the same point, actually means walking a lot of the same streets every day.
Here are three map thumbnails, showing the new streets visited in the first hundred walks, the next hundred, and the third hundred:
Although the total distance is longer in the last third than in the first, the total of new streets covered is much less, because of how far I had to go to even get to the new streets.
But the walks will continue, still targeting new streets. It’s a great way to get out, see new things, and get some exercise.
Here’s an animation of the 300 walks:
On to 400!
Update (Sept 29) Today was my 301st walk, and my mapping toolchain started the fourth hundred-map thumbnail, but it’s underwhelming since it only shows the new streets covered by one walk...
BTW: I wrote about how I do the mapping back in February: Mapping walks. The new thing here is how I do the 100-walk new-street maps. Low tech: to make the 201–300 map, I draw walks 1–300 with a thin black line, then I draw walks 1–200 with a thicker white line. Only the new streets remain.
