Marching into Iowa City

Many locals joined us for our walk into IC. What a great welcome: awesome potlucks, Hospitable home stays, fantastic rally at the Ped Mall and several other great events. Many thanks
To Physicians for Social Responsibility, 100Grannies, UUSIC, and everyone else who made it such a memorable two days. I also enjoyed a family reunion at David and Sandra's with Gay & Sheila, Don & Donna from Florida, and nephew Jeff and Donna. I'm so happy !


  1. It was great to welcome you to the Unitarian Universalist Society of Iowa City and to share a meal as we heard about your adventures. What a great night! I really enjoyed meeting a number of the marchers, planning an impromptu meal blessing with Izzy, becoming Ben's "bosom buddy", and having the opportunity to support you. Blessings to all of you as your journey continues!

  2. The National Peace Corps Association posted the Des Moines article about your walk across the country, to join the People's Climate March in NYC. I would like to offer lodging and company to you if you are passing through Madison.

    I am a member of the RPCVs of Madison, and also involved with the 350Madison group. Perhaps you have already been in touch with them, though I've not heard any rumors to that effect. I posted an email to the group to find out if we can co-welcome you (and any entourage you have, of course).

    Congratulations on an amazing journey!
