Dave Brown, VP of the AVA’s Liberty Bell Wanderers (you guessed it – based in Philadelphia) was dealt a tragic blow in August 2011 when his wife of four decades succumbed to ovarian cancer. Brown’s grief overwhelmed him for some time, but like any AVA member, he decided there was something to do about it – go walking. Thanks to Mike for forwarding this to me to post. http://flowalking.com/2013/02/the-inspirational-story-of-love-tragedy-and-walking/
Everett Ruess (I find the story about Everett Ruess fascinating. He was an adventurer, artist, writer who wandered from 1930-1934 mostly in the Southwest until he mysteriously disappeared in 1934. A documentary/drama was done by filmmaker Diane Orr called "Lost Forever". This can be ordered online at: www.everettruessmovie.com.) (Wikipedia has information and links to this fascinating story of Everett Ruess.) www.en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Everett_Ruess
