  1. And if you do not mind taking a few ferries, walk the Pan-American Highway. It is 19,000 miles (30,577 km) long, going from northern Alaska to the southern tip of Argentinia.

    • Granted, when you are in the USA, you will not be able to walk on the interstate highways, so the distance will be longer.

    • A friend of mine, George Meegan, walked the Pan-American route, from south to north, back in the late 70s and early 80s.

  2. Tim, you can not only walk on the interstates chances are pretty good a nice policeman will give you a ride. LoL

  3. Oh, and walk through the Sudans, the West Bank, Lebanon, Syria, Georgia and Russia? I don’t think so.

  4. Yet apparently back in time some people wandered about the middle east for 40 years without finding a home.

  5. this is not the longest road… – it’s possibly the longest direct route between two points on land that are farthest apart (by a walkable path) but you can easily make a longer route by simply taking a less direct route.
