I mentioned it a few days ago, but here is a Yahoo story on the guy that is walking across the US. He is a really nice guy and I'm glad I met him. He stayed a week here in Altoona so his girlfriend could come visit. We hung out at a sports bar a few nights and today I took them to the train station so that she could head back home. He should be checking out of his hotel right about now and starting the walk again. Somewhere around 3,000 more miles to walk.
His first interview was here in Altoona then someone from Yahoo found out. I even think some news station in Utah might have done one also? It might become bigger than he anticipated?!

With everything wrong in the world it is nice to have a feel good story. I mentioned to him before I dropped him off it seems kinda fitting that he's a Veteran and he's starting the walk again on Memorial Day. He laughed and said yeah it is.
