The Walker is VERY tired and will expound on the day's exploits later...the numbers are as follows...findings for the day: 1 pair of sunglasses (the kind you wear OVER your regular glasses), 1 intact Toyota emblem, 1 dime and 7 pennies.

After crossing the Apalachiola River at Chattahoochee I decided to "bag" another state (since I was in the neighborhood!!!) so I took a little stroll into Georgia, just to say I did. Two tenths of a mile in and wander around the forest long enough to say I was there.  Took a few proof pictures and then back into Florida.

Just as we were getting ready to finish for the day I was stopped by a vehicle with a young lady and an "experienced" gentleman.  Darrell Lockhart was driving his daughter, Sandi, out on an assignment for two newspapers she represents.  The Twin City News and her local high school paper.  They took a few pictures and after a brief interview were on their way.  Darrell as it turns out spent time in the Army during Viet Nam, thank you for your service.  Best wishes to you, Sandi, as you pursue the Pulitzer!

On the way home we stopped for BBQ at Voice of Thunder Ministry and BBQ.  I have tasted BBQ in every state from Nebraska to Florida and this is by FAR the very best BBQ I have eaten in my life! You can find them at: I wish there was a "BESTEVER" button on FaceBook as they would get my vote along with CrownBurgers and Paramour Coffee.
