How long do you think it would take for them to get

there? Bearing in mind the whole tribe of several

thousand is traveling with them, and they have to stop

for food, they aren't actually traveling with any

destination in mind, and they have to take shelter

from yearly storms.

What do you people think? >>

    I suggest you really stretch it out, maybe to twenty years.  There can be
intermediate stops in between, where, say, they find a place they think is
really nice and they stay there for four years until something that happens
that forces them out again, then they stop somewhere else, etc.  I have no
idea how long that would take just footing it.
