Today's walk was dedicated to Captain Dan Fisher of Peculiar, MO.  Dan flew planes for the Navy for several years, loves the game of golf and has survived cancer. Thank you for your service and the pleasant conversation.  When the day was over 23.4 miles (37.7419 km's) had been covered (definitly NOT all in a straight line!!!) with 48,955 steps.  Findings for the day: 1 Sam's Club and 1 Walmat debit card (Nicole R. may be happy that I found them!), 1 small heart shaped stuffed pillow with "Be Mine" on it (wonder how that ended up on the road side!?!?!?), 1 1/2 wrench, 3 quarters, 3 dimes and 1 beat up penny.  Wildlife sighted: 2 cardinals (it has been a while since I have seen birds with any color than grey.  After walking through Peculiar I was stuck with the freeway for about ten miles.  The stiff south wind and the wash from the traffic sucked the energy right out of me.  Maybe I am allergic to moving air!?!?!?  Once off the freeway we headed south and east on route 7 on the way to Clinton, MO.  From this point the route will be pretty much straight south until at least Little Rock, AR and perhaps significantly beyond.  The weather is nice (except for the wind) with clear skies and plenty of sunshine.  Thanks to Carol Johnston for stopping and chatting and for the contribution to Camp UTADA.  Happy people are contagious!  See ya'll down the road.  CHEERS!!!
