Natural Date: 549
Of course, it was just up the hill, but still, it feels neat to say I walked to Utah. There was no sign saying, “Welcome to Utah!” or anything like that, just a casino crossing.
The people of West Wendover were lovely and open to conversation. The cashier at the grocery store told me I should go to the casino. Almost in unison, the two customers in line behind me, an older gentleman and a young man behind him, said, “Don’t go! You only win if you’re a professional!” I wouldn’t have gone anyway, but I thanked them for their input.
This is not the sort of walk across America where the goal is not necessarily to arrive from point A to point B. It’s a new lifetyle, for now, where walking allows time and space to meet the ground and the sky, and the people who dwell in between; and through the process, introduce America to Natural Law.
