This seems a very misleading way of reading a text to me. If I were
reading an account of the Oregon Trail and someone mentioned that the
pioneers stopped overnight at the Dalles, and then went on down
the Columbia River, I would not assume that they took a few weeks or
months or years out to visit Los Angeles between their stop at the Dalles
and their continued journey down the river. I would think that we should
demand at least this much coherence from the text.
