Day 179- Lianna and Friends

Day 179- Lianna and Friends

Hey hey!

Only a couple days from the finish line and the LA area has been treating us well. Today we woke up to a made to order breakfast at our wonderful hotel. Motivated by the finish line, we got out before checkout. Once on the road the people took to us with smiles and high fives. We gave autographs to a couple of little kids. A woman was doing a picture a day of her little boy and so now we will be in thier album. Further down the road we spoke with a car full of people who were shouting out to us in disbelief. They pulled over further up the road to give us high fives. Carls Jr. offered up lunch and there we spoke with a socially akward young man who asked us a lot of odd, but valid questions, "what about if a murderer were to come at you while you were camping in the middle of nowhere?," to which I explained that there weren't a whole lot of wandering murderers in the middle of the desert looking for chance walkers. This did make us think of all the good fortune we have had. One man told us a sad story about being laid off after his visa expired, but was still smiling and headed to the community center to get it reinstated and find a job. He spoke highly of us and made us feel as if we were accomplishing something very inspiring. All in all todays walk was very uplifting. We ended the day with a Cold Stone ice cream (thanks to a gift card my sis gave me), then came the relaxing part of the day.

Lianna picked us up and took us back to her studio where we luaghed about old times and spent a little over an hour making a dinner choice. Her friends, Carmel and Danielle, joined us and we learned a bit about LA over a lot of curry. Back to Lianna's where she was kind enough to let us use her bed. Showered, Full, and very happy we settled in with thoughts of the next two days on the brain.

Givng Thanks Everyday,
