Sweet Home Chicago – July 23-31

We broke the walk from Chicago to Indiana into three segments. We walked from the Pulaski Orange Line station to Chinatown on Thursday (and were joined by Jen for the first four miles!). We were able to visit many other friends (and Tim’s family came into town!) at parties, work, lunches, and volunteering activities. Tim’s fourth grade teacher even came into the city to meet us! While we were in town we made a stop at the Fox 32 station for a short interview on Good Day Chicago. We walked down to the 69th Red Line station one day, and from there to Hegewisch on our last Friday. It was great to see familiar faces and sights, but we knew we couldn’t stay forever.

      Helen, we’re behind in posting, but there were so many great stories we weren’t able to convince ourselves to skip a month to catch up. We made it into Pennsylvania and are currently in Pittsburgh, but hopefully by the time we get to New York the posts will be up to date! (It’s sometimes hard to post after a long day of walking)

    Hi Tim and Rebecca,

    It is such fun to follow your blogs – particularly after spending time with both of you. It was such a treat for me. If you still have the photo that you took, Rebecca, of Tim and me would not not mind forwarding it to me at your convenience?

    Thanks so much and continue to be safe, Harriet Rincon
