Reviewers of Not Without My Father actually complain that I missed some of the prettiest spots on the Natchez Trace. Because walking more than a half marathon every day for a month leaves PLENTY of time for detours.
SERIOUSLY, THOSE WHINERS SHOULD TRY IT. I DARE THEM TO WALK FIFTEEN MILES A DAY AND GIVE CHIPPER SIGHTSEEING TOURS.
I recently spent a couple of weeks along the Trace, and I tried to cater to these whiners, I mean, do some tourist videos highlighting great spots along the Natchez Trace Parkway.
In this video I show you why I didn’t stop and visit the points of interest while I was in the middle of my 444 mile walk with 30,000 steps a day.
