24 hour walking tours

just read about this event called 24 hours via good magazine where you take a walking "road trip" around a city over the course of one 24-hour period. the most recent trip was centered in new orleans. it looks like milwaukee and boston are in the works, and there's even a link to submit your own trip!

calvin johnson, a co-founder of the project and a leader of the new orleans trip, says the marathon nature of the events helps promote a feeling of disorientation and discovery. "there's a sense at about five a.m. or six a.m. where basically your defense mechanisms break down," he says. "by the end, it feels like an acid trip without acid."
