     The first week of any long run or walk is hectic. As you can imagine there are a lot of wrinkles to work out. This walk was no exception. There is a lot of activity going on for this walk behind the scenes. A goodly portion of the "behind the scenes" is trying to keep this web site up as close as possible to where the walk is at. That takes computers and what we tried to do was have enough computers with the walkers so that they could send in daily updates via snail mail and that was our plan.

   Well needless to say it didn't quite work out. We had computer problems from the get go. The documents were not the main problem. It was the pictures. There were a lot of cameras involved and our "universal chip reader" wasn't quite universal enough. So we had to buy additional ones. Our walk laptop broke down! We couldn't find another one within our group so we took up a desk top which did work but as you can imagine was very cumbersome. Shelley Wascom came to the rescue! She had an old laptop with Windows 98 but it worked! Our problem then was to acquire all the drivers we needed for all the camera downloads. It also didn't have a cd burner so we had to buy one of those. We finally got all the software on as well as the burner and at last we had computer lift off!

   How some ever, with all these computers problems we didn't have any day logs for about three days. When your walking 15 to 20 miles a day, trying to issue local press releases, talking to the media, taking care of your blisters, and on and on and on it's hard to sit donw at a computer and write the story of the day let alone write it on paper and then when you get a chance transcribe it onto the computer. So some of this story will be told by the walkers. Those who feel so inspired to sit down late at night, skipping their much needed sleep, and writing a story. On other days the story will just be in pictures. Either way we think you will feel the meaning of this journey.

Peace and love to all
