I am a novice so feel free to disregard, but my feeling is it’s great to skip days, cut to the chase. Keep the momentum, as neither the writer nor the author should be a slave to the calendar. Good luck with it.
That’s what I was thinking. I will revise later to trim fat, but that’s what I was thinking. Though the calendar almost is part of the story. It’s a 147 day 2200 mile trip across America on foot.
