Epilogue (New Orleans, LA)

103: Me with the Bopp Family in Kenner, LA on Thursday night. Roll Tide!

102: Me with Broderick & Tanya in the Upper Ninth Ward, New Orleans on Wednesday

A special thanks to my two final hosts - Tanya Huang on Wednesday and the Bopp Family on Thursday. Their graciousness allowed me to stay and enjoy New Orleans a couple more days after my walk was over. And it allowed me to stay long enough to watch Alabama win the National Championship. I was cheering in spirit with all the many Crimson Tide fans who had hosted me on my journey through Alabama.

Now it is time to go home ....

  3. By the way I copied your mistake, it's Bopp not Hopp. I'm losing my mind. Ha Good Luck!

  6. Hi there,
    Just found your blog while researching following your bliss. Wonderful adventure!

    Did you know that a woman named Peace Pilgrim walked over 25,000 miles for Peace years ago - same principle...clothes on her back and the hospitality of strangers. When she was not offered food or shelter, she went hungry and slept outside. She is one of my heroes.

    Awesome way to live your life my friend!
