Walk Day One

After our pot luck supper tonight in Ellsworth folks posed for a group photo.   

We walked four miles in the pouring rain today through Ellsworth just to get a bit of a tune up.  Everyone was soaking wet.  Had nice response from the public - one guy came out of a auto dealership and told me he was impressed that we were walking in the rain.  I handed him one of our flyers.

In the morning we are expecting nice weather for our 11.6 mile walk.

After walking, and drying out a bit, we had a 90-minute orientation to go over the whole walk plan.  People shared why they were walking which was a very moving thing to hear.  We have a very solid group of folks with us.
