Yes, watch “Flying Machines”! And on the subject of walking — if you can find it online, I recommend “Walking To Werner”, a doc by a fellow who walked the length of the west coast from top to bottom to try and meet Werner Herzog. The endgoal winds up not mattering as much as the journey, and it’s one of my favorite things about walking-for-the-sake-of-walking I’ve ever seen
