A Long Walk to ... where?

An old man had a gift card for a grocery store. He asked the new sub liberrian, call her Cathy, where the nearest store was. Cathy found that it was about 26 miles away. He asked for directions, so she printed them out on Mapquest. As he looked at the directions, he realized they wouldn't be helpful because they contained freeways, and he wanted to walk to the store. So, Cathy made a different map which illustrated the back roads of a 26 mile walk.

The man walked away as the new directions were printing. Cathy chased after him to give him the directions that she just printed. She said, don't leave without the directions! He replied, what are these directions for?
