95 miles to go

Friends, we are less than 100 miles from reaching the coast. I got faked out a few days in a row by mountains on the horizon, thinking they must be the last wall of rock between us and the ocean. Today, we walked 24 miles to Victorville. Far off in the haze and half-light, we finally caught sight of the last range of this walk. In a couple of days, we will be up and over Cajon Pass, and overlooking the 50-mile sea of people-places that will usher us to the big water. We are tired and insane and totally stoked to be alive.

    We’ve been checking in on your remarkable project from time to time, and now you are almost finished! You guys are awesome. What an amazing story you have to tell… Anyway, just sent you a little donation to show our support. We tried sending one in August, but it didn’t go through apparently. Hope your final Walk Event is wonderful, and your cause gets the publicity it deserves. Congratulations! Hope to see you when you arrive back in Louisville, your friends and neighbors, Rayne and Jeff Mayer

    Hang in there, the view of the ocean coastline is a wonderful way to bring your journey to a close. You have a HUGE village that surrounds your every step, some will be there to greet you, and many others will be there in spirit. So when you are insanely tired, just remember all of us are with you and the dogs . Keep the faith. Take care of yourselves. Enjoy the time you have left. We know great things have happened because of what you’ve done, and more awaits you.
