After Sunday off and Monday off due to cold weather, Tuesday brought "nothin' but blue skies".  The day started out a wee bit chilly but by mid morning I had the jacket off.  Picked up just west of mile post 426 on route 56 east bound.  At Edgarton we took Road 195 east bound.  Rolling hills, farms, horse properties and more than a few folks who want to live in the country and commute to Kansas City or Lawrence.  Lots of trees and creeks between the rolling hills.  I guess summer is very pretty around here.  At the end of the day we had 21.2 miles (34.1935 km's) with 43,947 steps.  Findings for the day: 1 quarter, 2 dimes and 7 pennies...wildlife sightings: 4 white-tailed deer, numerous red-tailed hawks and numerous squirrels.  Thanks to the woman in Baldwin City for the conversation and the Subway gift card.  Food always gets put to good use around here.  Tomorrow we should walk out of Kansas into Missouri.  We currently have the motor home parked in Peculiar, MO (yes that IS the name!!!).  The road that we are on doesn't even rate a "Welcome to Missouri" sign.  The only evidence is a road called "State Line Road".  Thursday we should be walking into and past Peculiar.  Cheers!!!

I enjoyed meeting you today. I hope you enjoyed your walk through Kansas! I also hope you were blessed to meet many wonderful people. I talked about meeting you on my blog today (www.theweightofmyweight.com). I'm glad I was able to come here and learn a little more about why you are walking. Good luck to you!
