    25,000 miles and all he has to show for it is an 800-word article? PFFT.

    Although I do have to say I have no idea what you do with the rest of your life after you've gone on tour for 4+ years. That's one heck of a gap in the ol' resume to explain....

    or 17 miles a day.

    But I take it he took a lot of days off to enjoy the different cultures and areas he visited. Sounds like one heck of a trip I wish I could do.
