Okay people, thanks for tuning in again!
Today’s daily dose of the March for PTSD comes to you from Timberlake, Virginia.
I have moved today from Bedford, VA to Timberlake, which is about 16 miles. (note: 1200 miles covered on foot so far…)
This morning I had the pleasure of meeting 1st Sgt Bailey of the Virginia State Police who volunteered to move my pack down-line to Timberlake. Many thanks, many thanks.
I set off walking for a couple of hours and lo and behold who pulls up beside me while I’m walking but 1st Sgt Bailey!
He shouts out the window, “Hey are you hungry?”
and I replied “Heck yeah, I could always eat!”
…and with that 1st Sgt. Bailey treated me to lunch on the road, what a nice and friendly guy. I learned a little about him, he’s got 23 years on the force and he’s putting two daughters through college… whew! that sounds tougher that walking halfway across the country! Many thanks to generous 1st Sgt Bailey.
I’m staying tonight at the Timberlake motel via an anonymous donation… I don’t know who – but if you are reading this and even if you are not… thank you for your generosity, it is much appreciated And so the march goes on.
Talk to you tomorrow from Lynchburg, Virginia.
See ‘ya on the road!
