Our intrepid walkers, Tara & John-Michael, arrived on the eastern edge of Bexley around 5pm Saturday, April 20. Sharon dismissed herself from her phone volunteer duties at the WCBE 90.5 FM Spring On-Air Fund Drive to drive to Johnson’s Real Ice Cream on East Main Street and walk with the cross-country hikers the remaining mile-and-a-half to our house, where Jim joined them after a semi-successful on-air pitch session with Dan Mushalko during PRAIRIE HOME COMPANION.
Our guests were so appreciative of the creature comforts they rarely enjoyed since leaving the Atlantic shore- a night’s sleep, on matresses, in a warm, dry house after a home-cooked supper. They would enjoy a day of stand-down in our town as they visited another friend locally, then Monday proceed on toward the Pacific coast in Oregon, rolling west on Broad Street, US Route 40, the National Road. You can now follow them HERE,and on their FACEBOOK.
