    Very interesting! I wonder how he (they) knew how many miles they traveled each day. Any ideas?

      This is a great question, and I have wondered this myself! I believe they must have had a map with them and were guessing how far they traveled using it. Days where they didn’t pass a town or notable point of interest seem to be off in terms of mileage. On those days, I did some guessing as to where they camped.
