Today's walk was dedicated to my friend Fred who not only served our country in that "crazy Asian war" (aren't all wars crazy!?!?!?) but also taught a thing or two about shooting pool and life in general. Best wishes to you, my friend!!!...today we managed 20.5 miles under 41,953 steps...findings for the day: 1 large zip-tie, 1 Craftsman 5/8" wrench, 1 11/32" socket, 1 poker chip, 1 hub cap (as a potential temporary replacement for the one the motor home "threw"), 2 slugs (metal not slimy) 2 quarters, 2 dimes, 1 nickel and 11 pennies, at 16 coins that is a records for the walk (not counting the 27 Chuck-E-Cheese tokens!!!)...wildlife sightings: 1 squirrel and 1 red-tailed hawk, fortunately for the quarrel the hawk was seen well after the furry creature ran across the road!!!...a VERY good story about Dave and Jason from Tri-City Cycleworks in Grand Island: shortly after The Walk started for the day the Jeep died AGAIN, the portable charging unit Jim purchased did not work either, at the time I just happened to be walking by the local Kawasaki dealer, Tri-City Cycleworks and dropped in on the off chance someone would know about cars as well as motorcycles, after I introduced myself Jason jumped into action and had Dave take me back to the Jeep with some testing equipment, Dave got us started and took off, we then headed down the road an parked at the business to say "thanks" and to settle up...NO CHARGE!!!...Jason then started looking at things and determined that one of the battery connections was loose, again he got Dave to start working on the Jeep, a few screws and washers we were on our way at NO CHARGE!!!...these guys are GREAT...on a daily basis I am reminder that these two countries are made up of regular folks who are nice, kind and generous...thanks agina to Jason, Dave and the crew at TRI-CITY CYCLEWORKS out of Grand Island, Nebraska!!!...cheers
