Today I walked to honor Martin Luther King, Jr.  A man of vision, a man of substance and a man of peace.  Had I been born a few years earlier I would have been down here working on the civil rights movement.  A number of years ago I had occasion to visit the King Memorial in Atlanta.  If you get the chance I recommend that you go there.  It was a very moving experience for me.

When Monday drew to a close I had walked 20.6 miles (33.2258 km's), took 40,303 steps and picked up $0.05 (5 pennies).  Today we finished on old highway 80 just a few miles shy of Bolton, MS...see ya'll down the road!

Hello Arthur and Valerie, Thank you for sharing part of your journey with us. It was great walking with you for a few miles. In a few days when I have a whole day off, I hope to drive down and walk with you again while visiting more rv/cabin places along the route. Amber and I wish you the best (this is Steve). It was moving to read your dedications and follow your eclectic experiences along the route. We are following up on your suggestions to improve our place. I beieve I might have been crossing the Mississippi at the same time as you but driving in the opposite lane. I have a bag of pecans for you to deliver when I see you next.
