City of Archer, County of Alachua

I'm in the woods near the Kangaroo gas station keepin warm. My friend Sal stopped by to see me earlier today and bring me several items that will help with this Trek. Sal walked from Florida to San Diego for several causes and has a foundation of useful knowledge. He has a website for his cause which I can't seem to locate right now... It's on a piece of paper her in the tent. Anyways, check him out in my FB page for Trek for Hope as he has a comment on the main page. Salvatore P. So, I have been dealing with this nasty blister on my right foot in between my big and second toe. Bad spot. It's deep an a lil painful but I've been airing it out as much as possible and it's doing better. I also have new shoes thanks to my Gma and my cousin. The shoes are soooooo much better than my army boots. Wow, I just noticed that my tent feels like the heat is on in here! Well, I won't be cold tonight.
Several more generous ppl today... The young lady that manages 5 ACE Hardware stores gave me a few dollars and a box of vanilla wafers which are half gone. I don't know how to properly spell her name so I will just say thank you "A".... Another youg lady gave a huge cup of ice water to take with me. I passed her home and she was sitting out front and asked me if I was thirsty and I was so she gave me water. She told me that alot of homeless ppl pass by here and she gives them water. I had to explain that I was homeless by choice and I went onto explain the cause. She then thanked me and went about her business. So many others today... The guy in the car stopping and offering money and a ride... The mail lady who has a green beret for a son... The gas station clerk that said he wasn't rich but gave a dollar anyways.... Just so many ppl eager to give and some that give without even knowing the cause. Simply astonishing in so many ways.
Well, I'm headed to Lake City eventually... My cuz lives there and has offered me a place to sty... She is the same one that took me to find shoes. I def have a very giving family myself.
I'm gonna call it a night. Get some sleep. Take care everyone and I will talk to you soon. Until next time...

  1. I've been following your trek since I read about it in the paper, and I will continue to follow you throughout. Have you thought about using the camera on your iPhone to document the places and people you meet? Chase Jarvis, a photographer out of California has an app called The Best Camera and promotes that the Best Camera is the one you have with you. It would be cool to also see the things and people you speak of. You can check him out here
    Thank you for what you are doing.
