    make it a block

    Posted: Sun Jan 08, 2017 5:22 am Post subject: make it a block

    Dear Sir,

    The following is from the article on the above webpage.

    "They’re like America’s grandparents. I saw my grandparents in them,” Jim said. “And I made it a block before I pulled over and called the bank. And I asked them if I could pay off the past due amount.”

    What does "make it a block" mean?

    I succeeded in driving one block (the distance between two crossroads in American cities) more.
