Crestview from Milligan

I stayed up late from the drunken youngsters coming to investigate the ball tied to the van. A giant ball is hard to resist. Still, we got going fairly early and made our way to town where we rolled down Main Street. Turning south we rolled to the last gas station at the edge of town. The man who gave me a ride had ridden a bike across the nation and ran marathons. I met two men who were "extreme runners". I met several who walk a few miles everyday. I was inspired by all of them. I may never run a marathon, ride a bike cross country but I can walk everyday.

Was great to meet you & "Nice" today. Very inspiring to hear your stories. My two boys said they were so excited & had butterflies in their stomach, like they were meeting a celeberty, as we drove away. :) Be safe & enjoy the panhandle! You are making a difference. :) God Bless! The Lennard Family (triathlete & 5k family)

My daughter and I saw you walking on 85 heading towards Niceville (or Fort Walton Beach) Not sure where you were heading, but we looked you up to find out why you were walking with the globe and your dog. Several people in my family have been affected by diabetes. It will be wonderful if a cure can be found! Best wishes as you travel and get out your message. We will keep you and Nice in our prayers. (Since your dog is named Nice, you should definitely stop in NICEville!)

You should come to Niceville for sure! I would even buy you lunch if you make it there sometime tomorrow. I am a manager at the Niceville Walmart so just come in and ask for Manager Adam. Chic-Fil-A will be on me... for Nice also of course.
