Update: Walk to New Orleans

It has been awhile since I have made an update about my walk either here or on the walk site, so I decided to do it at both places. It came to the front of my memory as I get letters out to those who have/are supporting the walk:

It has been a long time since I have posted and for that I apologize. My current location is Falkville, Alabama. Thus, I have walked approx. 1400 miles. I have about 600 miles left to go. Here is the map of my walk from New Orleans to Falkville:

My trip back is going a lot slower than my trip down there. There are two main reasons: the weather and my schedule. The weather is the one that is really getting me though. Here are my weekly totals for the trip back:

Week 1 – 72 miles
Week 2 – 65 miles
Week 3 – 72 miles
Week 4 – 62 miles
Week 5 – 55 miles
Week 6 – 63 miles

Now, some individuals believe that tose are still good totals and overall, I guess that they are. However, compare the 6 weeks back to the first 6 weeks down there:

Week 1 – 107 miles
Week 2 – 105 miles
Week 3 – 108 miles
Week 4 – 77 miles
Week 5 – 100 miles
Week 6 – 80 miles

I should still be on target for my original finish date which was end of February. Once again, thank-you to all the adults who supported the walk and made this trip possible.
