I decided to walk today as the new shoes are still in route, then move on Friday.  Through Transylvania and on down the road.  Good thing we went through in the daylight!!!...and since we are in the "Bible Belt", well let the accompanying picture do the talking!!!


Lots of small houses, large estates and huge fields.  I can only imagine what it looks like in the summer, as green as it is brownish-grey now.  At the end of the day we where just about through Tallulah, Louisiana, having walked 22 miles (35.4839 km"s), using 44,134 steps and picking up $0.30 in loose change.  Findings for the day: 1 socket extension, 2 dimes, 1 nickel and 5 pennies.  I had a couple of unusual conversations today (more so than usual).  One gentleman (a veteran) asked me if I had been saved!?!? (a long time ago!!!)  The six "homies" on the corner, enjoying a "beverage".  The minister in a town of 2,500 with 32 churches and how the other ministers had conspired against him.  Indeed a very odd day.  I was just informed that the new shoes arrived today so we can move tomorrow to Clinton, Mississippi (suburb of Jackson) to resume the walk on Saturday.  Today we crossed over the 2,900 mile line, 5.5 million steps and $70.19 in change. NEVER underestimate the abilities of the extremely stubborn!!!..cheers!!!
