|South Route: Friday May 16, 2008 Texarkana, Arkansas - Shreveport, Louisiana|
today was a hot day even the mourning was hot we had circle as usual I was to read another manifesto quote today after yesterdays reading i felt a little more confident in myself but as soon as stepped in right away people said 'speak up!!!' 'READ LOUDER' this made me doubt myself and i didnt get to read it in all the confidents that i had when i entered the circle this made yaynicut mad and told me 'next time just tell them to be quiet and maybe they'll be able to hear you.' and i thought yeah...
but the rest of the day was used for nothing else other then walking DUH...(its kinda a walk) in the morning they found a dog it was in the middle of the highway just walking around and then it started to follow us so we let it. we've had so many animals walk up us but we never kept it dennis says we arent allowed to pick up stay animals for our safety but we always want to but we kept this one until the next town witch i heard was a pretty big town but i dont know we picked up the walkers at like 1 or 2 o'clock theb we drove the rest as soon as we got into the city limits there was a police escort and the sirens were on and everything people on the side of the streets were looking at us and waving and some just yelled and hooted and we had a big caravan with us this was a very cool time to be apart of it was even better and it felt nice we were staying at a park with some pice of surreal art work in it some metal like stuff it was big and not too far were these big water fountains that you could run in and get wet and they said we could do just that i really wanted to go it looked like fun and the media has come to interview some walkers and again we waited for our dinner to get here and we set up camp and jsut rested for the remaining time of the day and around 8:45 people started to go to sleep
but i guess this night some drunk people came in to the camp and try to start things and some walkers stayed up all night to watch the camp. thank you walkers for giving up a night of sleep even though you guys were tired to keep us safe and thanks to all the people that helped us out today we appreciate it!
