Not following the border at Sault Ste. Marie made me head back along the shoreline. Shorter bridges than the Mackinac are obviously crossed from Virginia to Maryland or we'd wind up in West Virginia. The bridge from Delaware to New Jersey that just bypasses Pennsylvania to the south is a large suspension bridge as well. It's good this way, makes people learn.

Since it’s pronounced “Connetticut” I think many people will omit the second C. As a Canadian, I didn’t learn the proper spelling until a few months ago when I had trouble in a quiz

Just went over the US map to make sure you got everything right, and you did a great job! But being a Virginian, I have to say you should have included Virginia after Maryland, and then Maryland again after Virginia, so as to include Virginia's Eastern Shore (the bottom of the Delmarva Peninsula).

'MasterKenobi'....... you are quite correct of course. I had no idea that the Southern last 100 K of the Delmarva Peninsular was Virginia, so it would be a terrible walk around the coast there with all the bays etc. but you are right and it has been updated. I have mentioned the Delmarva just as a clue for jetpunkers like myself.

If you don't count the upper Delaware River as being coastal, then the order should be DE-NJ-DE-NJ-DE-NJ (link to: https://www.google.com/maps/@39.5711235,-75.5875529,11.44z)

Doing a 'Walk' such as this is always tricky when it comes to rivers. If you follow the actual river to it's source you are asking for trouble (imagine a 'Walk round South America, when you arrive at the Amazon) ... On my 'Walks' I usually think of rivers as crossable not too far up river. this makes it possible to go Delaware - New Jersey then onward. Though I quite like the way that Delaware claims bits and pieces of the east bank of the Delaware river.

A walk not crossing water around the USA would cut off New England entirely as the Erie and Champlain Canals make it possible to circumnavigate New England and the Maritimes.

You are walking the coast of Lake Michigan and you go round the south of the lake and start heading North West then North to Chicago. After Whiting you turn North, North West towards East Side, Illinois, then continue North along the West side of the Lake. To make it clearer I've changed the direction hint to NW.

In this quiz you are presumed to be following the coast (as much as possible) Alabama has a short coastal area from about 10km after Pascagoula to about 20 km from Pensacola. If you travel East (give or take a few degrees) you will Enter Florida before Pensacola and travel then down the coast. Georgia is nowhere near the coast until you are travelling North along the Florida coast where you cross into Georgia about 35 km North of Jacksonville.
