I'll be away for the next few days. I suppose it'll fit the situation anyway, seeing as my character isn't really going to be doing much for the next while with all his long distance travel.

After the first day of ocean travel, Tobias was so sick of ice that he never wanted to go near the sea again. He had already eaten a third of his rations, how was he supposed to know how big the ocean was?
Sighing with boredom, Tobias rolled onto his stomach and fell asleep. If luck was on his side he would be in America tommorow. If only he had taken a proper map, then he would know just how far away the USA lay away.
