Hello from the Atlantic Ocean


Hello from the Atlantic Ocean. As we cross the powerful Atlantic, we ponder its place in history and its power to inspire to writers, musicians, and artists. While you may think that swimming or rowing are more appropriate sports for this leg of endeavor, we Kansans are still pursuing our goal of “walking” around the globe. We’ve walked a combined 3,359 miles, starting in Goodland, Kansas, to our current point in the briny blue and we’re still going.

Join us on our quest to circle the globe and add your steps to the total.  Click here to download a Walking Scorecard to track your steps or minutes exercised. You can even pick up a pedometer to count your steps at the Hometown Teams Smithsonian exhibition in in Atchison (opening June 27), Perry, and Humboldt, and at participating Hometown Teams partner sites.

Where will we go next? Will we reach dry land? Stay tuned for next week’s post and follow KHC’s walking progress on Facebook,  Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest.
