Day 1, July 1st- Gracious-ness

Day 1, July 1st- Gracious-ness

 

Hello,
Before we could even begin this day we had to take a train, a plane, a taxi, the subway and finally after we officially started a ferry. Due to the ferry schedule we got into Highlands, New Jersey at noon, a late start indeed. But the very kind hearted people of NJ helped us through. First Mark helped us find leonardville st. A woman on a bike caught up to us with a five (ice cream money). James, Doug, a family gardening, and a man at the market all offered us bottles of water. We couldn't say no (it was 90 degrees almost all day). Despite the heat we still manages to walk roughly 18 miles in addition to the twenty mile ferry ride. Our sign has been working wonders, many pulled over to ask us questions and give words of wisdom. Beyond that we got a lot of honks, but it just might be because Shikira is so good lookin. Shikira did struggle a bit but with breaks every 3 or so miles and with words of encouragement we ended up making it to an excellent place to lay our heads (we will have.pics of the camp spot tomorrow). All in all a great first day. We both got farther than we imagined we would.

Thanks to all,
Levi and Shikira
