Maybe one way around this - to allow less room for protests over an 
attempt - is to simply yo-yo at the end of an attempt and do the requisite 
missing miles so that one has walked the standard 2655 or 2661 miles in the 
end, ie, if nobo, in the case of 59 miles of closures, stop the clock after 
retracing the last 59 miles south of the Canadian border; or if sobo, redo 
the last 59 miles leading to the Mexican border.
