Proposal: Just a slight fix to travel

Passes 9-1. Timed out.—alethiophile

Reword the text in Rule 2.6.1 Movement that currently reads:

If travelling in a Land Type vehicle, there must be unbroken land between their previous and new Location.

to read instead:

If traveling in a Land Type vehicle, there must be an unbroken route navigable by automobile between their previous and new Location.

This explicitly allows for people in locations served by bridges/tunnels/ferries. It also fixes a spelling error (traveling).

Note that as written, both this and the current rule allow (for instance) one-day travel with a land vehicle between Ceuta and Gibraltar, on opposite sides of the Strait of Gibraltar, though the land route between the two is much longer (via Israel).

Because I’m lazy, and don’t want to look for ferry routes.
