DANG YOU XKCD! Did you have to create something so large that we super-curious OCD types that must discover everything have to create something so large, contained in such a small space that it is very time-consuming to click-and-drag around that tiny box? There is just sooooo much in this tiny window of a cartoon!

I followed the cave for the most part and eventaully came to 2 stick figures saying that they feel like gone a long way. He replies its only been 2 miles. That appears to an end point for 1 side.

the thing lost connectivity while I was going up the antenna in the opposite direction

I started off going left for what seemed like forever, then I found some caves and followed them for another eternity. It started becoming so hard to remember where I left off so I could go back and try to discover more of the image if I came to and endpoint.

I need to find somebody with a lot of time on their hands to create a full-image picture of the entire cartoon.

I counted at least 100 screens down and left and right. I'm betting that this is at least 300X300 ft if not more

Aha! I just found this: http://xkcd-map.rent-a-geek.de/. I knew there had to be someone with a lot of time on their hands to put something like this together, and the internet never fails me.
