POST 1119; MAY 20, 2013; HURRICANE, WEST VIRGINIA
* * * * * * * * * *
This is a PRELIMINARY update...to be followed by a FULL update in the morning.
It is now 8:00 pm, Monday, May 20, 2013. SAM and ME have minutes ago, arrived at a motel in the town of HURRICANE, West Virginia...after walking US 60 for approximately 47 miles...YES...47 MILES.
I was not aware it was so far...however, we had little choice as there was only one decent motel the entire way - from 10 miles East of CHARLESTON, West Virginia, where we stayed last night...and that one motel was at the mid-point of today's journey.
Our long time "follower" DALLAS LOVEJOY, has been eagerly awaitng our arrival in his town to meet with the Seniors Citizens of HURRICANE.
SAM and ME have been walking 13 hours straight to arrive here...and I plan to dedicate another 4 hours or so to catch up on our tardy blog updates.
Tomorrow, Dallas, I will take all the time you wish to meet with you.
If desired, I will stay a second night....at the motel, or at a private home if appropriate...before continuing our journey.
Thank you for being patient...I look forward to meeting you.
