On quitting

Larry King: Did you ever think of quitting?

George Meegan: No, because I never had the courage. To give up requires great courage. To turn back requires great courage. I think any fool could go on. Provided you have the legs to move. And I think to surrender one's dream, half finished, is a terribly difficult thing and I never quite had the authority within myself to do that.
Quoted on the back cover of The Longest Walk by George Meegan

Distance walked since last post: 21.2km
Total distance walked since Koshu Kaido training began: 74.9km
Days left until departure: 82
