Walking Day #152...Wednesday, February 6, 2013...into Evergreen, Alabama and beyond

The day started out VERY foggy with visibility at about 200 yards (190 meters).  Parts of the trip looked rather erie with the fog, the dim light and the trees of various heights and types.  Had my phone (camera) been working I would have taken a picture.  Oh, by the way, the Jeep is back 100% operational.  Cleaning the battery posts and cables did the trick.  By mid morning the fog had dissipated and we were back in good old sunshine.  Sure is nice to be back in short sleeves and shorts.

When the day was done we had walked right through Evergreen, which I would expect in its prime was quite a thriving community.  Now, like most rural small towns, half the buildings are boarded up.  The count today was 22.8 miles (36.7742 km's) under 45,692 steps and picking up one red cent.  The findings for the day: 1 #11 wrench, 1 #12 wrench, 1 pair of brown ladies sunglasses and 1 penny.  No profound thoughts or epiphanies just a lot of logging trucks and no shoulder.  I did pick up a decent map of Florida.  See ya'll down the road and see some of you in Key West in a couple of months.  Cheers!!!
