Not to detract from his feat, which is remarkable, and well beyond anything I could do, but he had a GPS so he took the shortest & best route.

I bet those boys back in 523 B.C. wandered around for a while before they gave up & died.

Signor Miglietti, who covered between 50 and 56 miles a day, kept up his energy with dates, condensed milk and Parmesan cheese.

The power of high fat content and potassium and water wins the day, yet again.

'Course, your activity level has to need all that high fat and potassium and water for it to win the day!

Wop-ping

Wop = guappo(handsome and/or intelligent.) Sicilian derivative from spanish guapo
Italians emigrated to US legally not W/O Papers.

Freepers are now enlightened as to the real meaning of WOP

Five days, 23 hours later, with blistered feet and severe stomach cramps, he arrived at Siwa.

Signor Miglietti, who covered between 50 and 56 miles a day, kept up his energy with dates, condensed milk and Parmesan cheese.

I'm just saying, put 2 and 2 together.
