Is Mycle walking the lonesome road?
Technically, yes. Mycle is doing the physical walking on his own, but he has the undying support of friends, fans, and family. For the Walk Across America, he stayed in small motels along the way. Some nights, he’d crash with hospitable folk. For S2S, his best friend is driving along in an RV so Mycle can get proper rest. All of this still needs support!

When’s the walk?
En route. The journey started on July 17, 2011 in San Diego, CA. As you read this, Mycle is strollin’ to Seattle. His expected arrival date at Seattle City Hall is November 22, 2011 (11-22-11)!!
How the heck is he walking from San Diego to Seattle?
His own two feet, mostly, with a lot of inspiration and determination. The only assistance he’ll have is a cane to support his right side, a result from his third stroke. He plans to walk about 14 miles per day for six days a week and rest on the seventh–just like the good ol’ days.
Why all the walking?
Mycle is determined to raise awareness to prevent and care for heart disease and stroke patients. He wants to publicize the early warning signs of stroke and provide hope and encouragement to stroke survivors to keep up with their recovery. As a part of his “Get off the Couch” campaign, he wants everyone to keep moving, start exercising, and stay healthy.
Where’s the walk?
Straight up the Pacific Coast to San Francisco, then Mycle cuts inland towards Sacramento. From there, he’ll go up along the 5 Fwy through to Portland, Olympia, Tacoma and, ultimately, Seattle!
