After walking we visited Walmart for an oil change and tire rotation on the pace car. While there, a couple of people expressed interest in the walk, Paulette and Dean.

Jake Brown, with “The Bare Sole Project”, started walking in March and is on the way to New York. He jogs barefoot! Check out his website at http://www.thebaresoleproect.com.

He stopped and took a break, as Pastor Chick was taking his break. After a long visit, they both continued on their journeys.

This morning was another cool morning, becoming hot later, but there was enough breeze to keep it bearable.

The road was closed for 8 miles, so that the road could be oiled. Traffic was allowed to pass, using one lane and I was allowed to park the pace car on the shoulder facing traffic.

The blessing of this was that traffic was often lined up for Freedom Walker to salute!

Even though we were in the desert, and a construction zone, there was still some beauty in nature!

Down the road, Suzanne joined Keith Edwards and Freedom Walker for a distance.

As they reached the finish line, a man on a bicycle rode up and learned about the walk.

Then Keith, Suzanne, and Tinker said their goodbyes and departed.

Today’s walk ended after 16.6 miles.

Thanks to Keith Edwards and Suzanne for joining us. Your presence brightened the day and improved the end of the walk! We appreciate your support!

Freedom Walker looked over and saw a white van parked. His old friends, Keith Edwards and Suzanne had come to join him!

Keith, with his dog Tinker, got out and ran over to hug Freedom Walker, and Suzanne looked for a safe place to park the van.

Keith and Tinker walked with Freedom Walker for more than 3 miles. Suzanne joined them down the road.
