Day 85

DATE: March 26
MILES: 257.1
I'm walking down roads called "Grassy Fork," "Black Hollow" and "Steam Furnace." Deep in the heart of SW Ohio. Just past through a dot on the map called "Whippoorwill." Two miles ahead of schedule.

Day 81

DATE: March 22
MILES: 243.9
Still in rural SW Ohio, near Locust Grove, with little to report. Rather than another dull map screen-grab, here I am standing by the fake King Tut statue in Las Vegas. Those are some big feet.

Day 76

DATE: March 17
MILES: 233.9
After a couple of days of non-stop walking in Las Vegas last week -- where every block is the better part of a mile -- I'm ahead of schedule by about 10 miles. And finally, the winter weather here has broken.
Currently, my journey has me in Ohio still, just southwest of Pike State Forest, and heading for the Kentucky border.

Day 59

DATE: February 28
MILES: 165.9

End of month summary: 165.9 miles walked; 911.1 miles to go.

I should be at 177 miles by now, but the snowiest month ever in my world has put a crimp on just walking down the street.

I'm heading into Lancaster, a place I recall semi-fondly from when my AMC Eagle stopped running there during a road trip. On the upside, it busted near the mall, and some web-buddies later rescued me.
