On the ROAD and RADIO again - for Amity and Unity
In my recent MONTANA Made Me Do IT book, I tell how I came to the
conclusion that walking from Montana to New York City in 2002 was one
of two best things I had ever done. The other was caring for my father
in the last weeks of his life.
That realization helped spur me
to do the 2012 Walk carrying Fannie the Flag. It helps give me another
push to go out again Walking for Amity and Unity which I believe are
two keys to Peace.
I will be heading down the road shortly
with extra gear - tent and poncho - thanks to Adrie and Charlotte. (I
went tentless and practically rainless last trip.) And, I have a buggy
to carry that gear, odds and ends, and gallons of water when I hit
desert. The latter was a gift from Duane and Audrey. They also were
responsible for lettering the rig.
upcoming itinerary will take me to Arizona and Nevada. The layout below
is just to give you a general picture of the territory to be covered.
The route is and will be subject to change (I now am considering Idaho
and Utah to Arizona). I am open to suggestions. If you know any one or
place I MUST visit, let me know. I also am willing to entertain course
corrections, in general. Who knows what the adventure will bring? I
have never - in this lifetime - traveled most of this territory ahead.
Certainly not on foot.
Thursday afternoon, I had the good fortune to be interviewed by Merry
and Burl Hall about my writing and walking projects. The program is now
available for on-demand listening at
three of us had a wide ranging discussion and a fun visit. Merry and
Burl host a weekly show, usually on Wednesdays, pointed to envisioning
a holy and wholesome future. Our interview got moved to Thursday due to
"technical difficulties." But, all their shows covering the last 12
months are archived for listening any time.
Take a moment and check out the listing of their programs.
Amity and Unity to you,
