Notes… Day 170 +3

Day 170 +3. This will be my last post-walk post. I want to thank my friends, old and new, for your support and caring, for worrying about me and cheering me on, for the genuine and unselfish generosity shown to me, and for pretty much everything. This includes my friends and classmates from Wantagh High […]

Notes… Day 170 +2

Day 170 +2. Life is indeed different in First Class. Roger and I ate an early breakfast and we were out of the house at 7 am. He and his family own real estate developments and properties in New Jersey, and we visited them on the way to Newark airport, all the while trading stories. […]

Notes… Day 170 +1

Day 170 +1. All day I thought about a strange emptiness I’ve been feeling. Some possible reasons: 1. I no longer have to wonder where I’ll be sleeping tonight (in a motel? a pasture? behind a pile of asphalt? in someone’s backyard?) 2. I don’t have to worry about drinking water, and certainly don’t have […]

Notes… Day 170

Day 170. As promised, Roger picked me up at 7:30, and we headed off to IHOP for Swedish pancakes. Then it was a 38 mile drive to Rehoboth Beach. I walked the last couple of miles into town and down to the water, took off my shoes and socks, waded in, and… Poof! My journey […]

Notes… Day 169

Day 169. My attempt to attend Shabbat services at a local congregation this morning fizzled when I discovered too late that their online schedule was inaccurate. So instead I walked 5 miles through “Old Salisbury” and beyond, had an early lunch, and checked into the motel where I’ll be spending my last night in Maryland. […]

Notes… Day 168

Day 168. Rain. Wind. Gray skies. I’ve seen worse of each, but I’m so near the end… My B&B host, Elise, insisted that she and Harvey drive me across the Nanticoke River bridge towards Salisbury. And when we stopped at a gas station, I insisted on pumping the gas into their very empty tank. Halfway […]

Notes… Day 167

Day 167. The walk to Vienna, Maryland was hot and humid, but otherwise uneventful (e.g., no flashing lights). My clothes and I (as well as my backpack) were all drenched with sweat. The Tavern House Bed and Breakfast is a charming house on River Road in the colonial town of Vienna. The town is located […]

Notes… Day 166

Day 166. Each morning I head out to continue my journey hoping for no drama, no great challenge, and no disaster—large or small. For better or worse, my life is full of adventure. The Choptank River is a major tributary of the Chesapeake Bay and the largest river on the Delmarva Peninsula, running for 71 […]

Notes… Day 165

Day 165. This morning I wrapped up the outer 3 toes of my right foot with blue Leukotape K, put on 2 pairs of socks and my slides, grabbed my backpack, and out I went. (This was after breakfast, of course.) No rain today (good), but it was mostly cloudy (very good), and for long […]

Notes… Day 164

Day 164. Although it was hot and humid today (high 90°s), I didn’t mind. I wasn’t walking on the highway, and spent most of the day in air conditioned comfort. First, I walked to the Silver Spring Metro Station with my daughter Marna, and we chatted until I got off at Union Station (she continued […]
