We saw you on Saturday, Sept 20th, walking north on First Avenue in Rock Falls, IL. We were going to a ribbon-cutting in cross-river Sterling, dedicating a new park and walking bridge over the Rock River. We couldn't help but stop and ask you about your journey. The walking bridge connects Sterling to Rock Falls and the adjoining 40-mile long Hennepin Canal State Parkway. For your information on your way to Dixon (after leaving Sterling) you walked on Route 2, which parallels (sometimes by only a few blocks) the Historic Lincoln Highway - when my parents were young it was the northern route to California. Dixon is the boyhood home of Ronald Reagan. He was born in nearby Tampico, IL and went to high school in Dixon. You may recall that we suggested you stop at Books On First, a well-stocked independent book store in downtown Dixon. It is a local favorite. We sincerely hope our area was kind to you and assisted in completing your venture.

Jim & Karen Boesen,

Hi Ted,
I saw you this morning while I was driving to work.
You were walking down RT 38 near Maple Park Illinois about 7:40am Central Time.
Have a great journey!
Cherie
