I met this nice couple after work today at Subway here in Lexington. Spoke with them a few minutes. His name is George and his girlfriends name is Rocio. He has walked from Washington State, down to Atlanta Georgia and is headed for Washington DC. Yes I said " walk ". I asked him what was he going to do about the cold wet wind we will have here soon and he said " we'll walk in it ". Cool answer huh ! I had to look at his feet to check out his foot gear and was suprised to see he had on beach sandals ( not flip flops ). His toes and feet were exposed to the elements but he said of all the shoes he has he likes those best. He would know right? His girlfriend has traveled to meet him on his journey 6 times and walked with him about 5 % of his walking distance so far. Since I watched the video Im more privaledged that I even got to talk with this guy !
