A spider and a fly are diametrically opposite vertices of a web in the shape of a regular hexagon. The fly is stuck and cannot move. On the other hand, the spider can walk freely along the edges of the hexagon. Each time the spider reaches a vertex, it randomly chooses between two adjacent edges with equal probability and proceeds to walk along that edge. On average, how many edge lengths will the spider walk before getting to fly?
