I cannot leap tall buildings in a single bound

And despite Google Transit’s insistence, I cannot legally cross all those lawns:

Google Transit told me that to get from my location in Cupertino to 1 Infinite Loop, I can simply walk in a straight line (which it depicts as an arc)—crossing through a residential block and apparently jumping over most of the Apple Campus.

    How are your car-dodging skills? Crossing ten lanes on 280 will be a neat trick.

    I used to do a similar walk/ride. Quite a hike, but at least it’s not summer any more. Homestead is nice enough, but De Anza really wasn’t designed for foot traffic. The sidewalks might as well be posted with signs: “legally mandated afterthought”.

    I might welcome that. Right now, it’s damn cold in the mornings (~08:00). I can walk with my jacket on and not overheat—it’s that cold.

    Truth.
