This is a different kind of story by Paul and Barbie Bentley. They are taking their time to walk across the US, having set out from Moscow, Idaho, on the Washington/Idaho border on July 3 2006, ultimate destination Florida. They found walkingstories.com by chance, and e-mailed to let us know about their venture.
"We don't like to hurry, we want to see it all", says Paul. They're stopping off at different places along the way, camping for a while, getting temporary jobs, getting to know people, then moving on again.
The day they were due to leave Buena Vista, Colorado (April 24) they awoke in a blizzard. Meanwhile, the UK had been enjoying weeks of summer weather in the springtime. Weird! Latest news is (start of May), they're in Canon City, Colorado, after walking through Bighorn Canyon. It sounds like a wonderful experience.
