Walking across America, stopping in Yellow Springs
- Published: April 20, 2017
Abby Bongaarts, 24, and Danny Finnegan, 23, stopped in Yellow Springs this week as part of their walk across the USA. They left Long Island on March 1 and are aiming to make it to San Francisco in September. With them is a custom-made cart, which holds all of their camping supplies, reading material and an extra pair of shoes, which they make sure to alternate. It will also be good for holding a few days’ worth of water, which will come in handy when they cross Nevada. While they initially embarked on the trip simply for the sake of adventure, they were able to parlay their trip into a fundraiser for a homeless shelter in Portland, Ore. They have stayed with friends, family and friends of friends, as well as the yards of the many hospitable folks they’ve met along the way. While in town they visited some kids at Mills Lawn School.
