Tressy, who became very excited, when she first met Pastor “Chick” along the road, was still very excited!

With Tressy came her friends, James, Lee, and Gary. Pictured with them is Bill White, who asked what he walked for. He said “That’s a heck of an effort!”

Regina and Dan McGrath have been supporters since they met Freedom Walker on the road. Dan wanted to be at the Pier, but could not. Regina drove many hours to reach there.

A group, including some that just met Pastor “Chick”, stood with him at the end of Route 66 sign.

A woman who just met us asked if she could hold the flag.
