My Grandparents, his dad and mom, lived on a House boat on a river in Tennessee.
When Dad got up in the morning he would walk uphill/upriver, to school.
Grandma would motor the house boat upriver, past the school, during the day.
So Dad would have to walk uphill/upriver after school to get home.
At night, after he got home from work, grandpa liked to fish so they would float down river.
Next morning.........yup, uphill to school.
True story, but grandma said it was very flat not than much of a climb, lol, and maybe a few miles.
