My overall plan is to walk thru Arkansas to San Diego, California. The first major leg of my journey will take me from Bono, AR to Jefferson City, MO. It should take me about one month to reach Jefferson City. Once I get to Jefferson City I will join the Katy Trail and pretty much stay on that through most of Missouri. From there I plan to loosely follow the American Discovery Trail through Kansas and into Colorado, stopping occasionally to camp in any of the National Forests I pass through. At this time I then plan to head down from Colorado into New Mexico and then into Arizona, before heading to Southern California to winter for the year.
“I imagine walking thru Arkansas into Missouri will be one of the toughest legs of the journey. Getting used to being alone, dealing with the foot and body pain that will initially come, finding places to pitch my tent for the night, and walking along busy highways will all take some getting used to. “
I will try and update my posts as frequently as possible. How often I can do that is greatly dependent on my WiFi situation and my location. Hopefully many of the small towns I go thru will have someplace where I can grab some coffee and access the internet for a little while.
