|South Route: The second midnight walk|
The 2nd 24 hour walk was hard and challenging for all of us but one of them made it all the way also one of the supporter. Me, Chino, Andre and Verna plan the 2nd 24 hour walk after the first walk. We were getting ready for this walk but some of the walkers dont want to help us out and support us, so we decided to go on the walk by ourselves. They tried to stop us but we resisted from not walking. This walk is not for recognition, it is for the people on the walk to cover some miles for them. This walk was also for the people in this world not just dine nation. When we were finish getting ready for the walk, Dennis drop us off at the starting point and talk to us for awhile then prayed for us to. We started walking on midnight, some of us were tired and sleepy but we kept going for two hours then we rested for awhile. We ate some snacks, when we were finished we started walking again for another hour and half. Thats when Verna starting to feel the pain in her leg, but we still kept going until we reach the store in a small town. We just sat around or rested for three hours waiting for the other walkers to catch up with us. Verna and Andre were told to go the hospital to get it check, her leg was swollen up. Me and Chino got on the bus even though we still wanted to walk. Wsat on the bus thinking we should keep walking, but people wanted us to end it cause of our legs, it was hurting. When the walkers rested and started walking we join them again, walk for three miles. They told us to go up ahead where the walkers end there walk, so we could keep walking. Me, Chino and Ben started walking again without Verna and Andre. We walk for seven miles then we took a break and ate lunch. Once we were finished me and Ben started walking, Chino's leg so she caught a ride with Henry. Me and Ben walk and walk for two hours, we walk into Louisana. We were sorrounded by green trees, swamps and bugs were all around. We rested for awhile then PJ joined us then we started walking again. We walk for a long time, then it got dark but we still walk until a support vehicle came and gave us some food to eat. When we were finished we started walking agian until a cop pull up and ask us what we are doing so we told him. The cop call for backup so another cop pull up and ask us the same thing but she was mean. Another cop pull up and ask the same thing again we told him waht we are doing and why. They check our background but we were all clean so the lets go. We continued our journey again. We walk for another couple of hours then Henry showed up and pick us up then took us back to the camp. When we got back we just stayed up for awhile then pass out. I was so tired and my leg was hurting cuz of my bad knee, but i made it the wole 24 hours. This 2nd walk we did was hard and challenging and a struggle but it felt good even though i was hurting. Me and Ben made it all the way which was pretty cool and PJ and Ben sang some songs which made the walk more exciting. Me, Chino, Verna, Andre were known as the midnight walkers. This is the story of the midnight walkers walking the 2nd walk. Only one made it all the way.
