Do you average the same number of stops on every Death March?
How much time (on average) do you like to spend at each eating stop?
Not really enough Death Marches done yet to really say. We ate at the same general number of places in Manhattan (from rough memory, Zabar’s, H+H, Beard Papa Gray’s Papaya, oysters, several pizzerias, ice cream, kebab in Greenwich Village, and a post-March pizza celebration). Fewer in San Francisco (Fisherman’s Wharf, Ferry Building, Beard Papa, tacos in the Mission, Bi-Rite Creamery, and a post-march burger joint in the Mission). Hopefully more on future walks.
We try to spend less than 15 minutes at stops, since (a) all the stops accumulate (according to my GPS, on most Death Marches we spend 1/3 of our time not walking) and can cause time pressure, especially when evening comes, and (b) After mile 10 or so, you stop wanting to get up after being seated for more than 15 minutes or so.
