Today is Jim's last day as support vehicle driver.  During Jim's tenure 904.4 miles (1,458.7097 km's) were walked, 1,824,860 steps taken and $9.16 in loose change picked up.  Jim was kind enough to step in after my mother "retired" enabling me to continue to walk to honor those with diabetes, 1specifically my son Jonathan, to honor and support those whose lives have been impacted by cancer, specifically my nephew Ross and my mother's husband Cec and in support of all those men and women who have served or are serving in the Canadian and American military forces.  Today on Jim's final day we did 22.9 miles (36.9355 km's) under 47,466 steps.  Findings for the day were: 1 Kobalt 9/16 wrench, 1 4" extension for small sockets, 14 "bungie" cords of assorted lengths and colors (found on a pile like coiled snakes!), 1 quarter, 1 nickel and 2 pennies.  Wildlife sighted: 2 rather fast bunny rabbits.  Tomorrow we drive to Kansas City so Jim can get back to the Pacific Northwest from whence he came.  Friday my brother Victor (the father of Ross) shows up for a couple of weeks.  On January 4, 2013 the new driver (WILL IT BE YOU!?!?!?) will show up in Little Rock, Arkansas to see me all the way to Key West, ahead of schedule and over budget!!!  Sounds like the new slide seal will be tested tonight as it just started raining...CHEERS!!!
