This odyssey isn't quite as epic as, say, Homer's.
Still, four cities over nine days, opening on the Canadian west coast, in Vancouver, and serpentining all the way east in the U.S., to Tampa Bay, Miami, Pittsburgh, and back represents a bit of a hike at 4,170 kilometres.
Even via charter aircraft.
"We have a good break of days to get to the east coast,"noted skipper Mark Giordano. "I'm sure it'll be nice and warm in Florida, so the body will feel good.
"And with our trade and the hotels we stay in, honestly, it's top notch. We're pretty spoiled.
"We get (to Tampa) on the Sunday and don't play until Tuesday. So to get those days are huge.
"Staying hydrated, nutrition, sleep … all those things come into play."
