In it he mentions.... Fresh water. Lots of land. And cold winters that, in theory, would slow the walkers down, if not cause them to freeze solid.
The distance between North Carolina and Wellington is 853 miles. Walking 20 miles a day, if able, it would take roughly 42 days to get there. 10 miles a day would make it an 85 day trip!
Since the most common way to travel seems to be on foot, the group's members, Kenny, Clementine, Luke and etc, are no doubt in very good shape physically. So the trip from that standpoint, to me, seems possible.
And as far as the danger of being attacked by walkers on the way, is nothing new to them. After almost 2 years since it all began, they should be pretty adept at dealing with any walkers that show up. At least Kenny sure is, and even Clementine's skills seemed to have sharpened significantly.
Of course, walkers are not the only thing to be concerned about. There's also Bears,( mostly black bear, as Grizzlies are mostly found in Alaska, Canada, Wyoming, and parts of California), Cougars, Wolves, ( Which can also be found in some eastern states), Coyotes, ( Who tend to take down small animals when not scavenging, and a child could be on their dinner menu).
However since civilization has but all disappeared, these animals would no doubt be spreading out into other states, as they done hundreds of years before. So those are added dangers the group would have to face!
Granted, fresh water and having lots of land is never not a good thing. They only thing I would personally be concerned about is, keeping warm and fed when winter strikes. Winters in Michigan are extremely harsh, as I'm sure anyone who lives in Michigan will attest to.
However, when everything is said and done, I think it's a good plan in itself. Not only because it's with in the realm of possibility, but also because it conveys a message of hope. That yes, mankind will persevere in the face of adversity, and eventually become victorious!
That's one thing I've always loved about Kenny, and is one of the things that has always drawn me to his personality, his relentless hopefullness.
When they do arrive, on thing that I hope is a dialogue option is, to suggest that the group, recon the place, to see if it's friendly or not. Kenny may just want to walk up the place and ask to enter, as he does tend to be impetuous at times.
How about you, what are your thoughts on Kenny's plan to head to Wellington?
