Five years ago today the Alzheimer’s Association and the Department of Natural Resources hosted a send off event. It was held at Skidaway Island State Park near Savannah, Georgia. Alzheimer’s disease had taken my dad from us and I was on a mission. Several months later I walked out on the beach at Marina, California. The total milage would be 3052. Of those miles, 2,594 miles were on foot and 458 found me sitting on the passenger seat of a car.
** The official conclusion was at Bubba Gump Shrimp Factory in Monterey, California. The milage above reflects that.
