On trans-country hike: Jodi discovers herself while discovering America

Follow Jodi's adventure!
Jodi Harrington is 14 miles outside Eureka, Nevada walking past all that water she buried last year in the desert.

She’s pushing a baby stroller given to her by a “trail angel.” In it, Jodi has five gallons of water, her tent, sleeping bag, laptop, books, canned goods and mustard.

Pushing the stroller beats carrying a 25-pound backpack. Or, digging up the gallon jugs of water she buried on her recon trip last year.

Jodi’s on mile 3,465 of her 4,834 hike across America to raise awareness and money for her friend Jeremy Eby and others who suffer from Neurofibromatosis, a neurological disease more common than similar diseases like muscular dystrophy, cystic fibrosis and Huntington’s Disease.

If Toledo is really the Silicon Valley of solar energy, as CNN called us, shouldn’t we plug in a few of the panels we make here?

If Ohio is the number one state in the nation for alternative energy development, as Site Selection magazine writes, shouldn’t we capitalize on this leadership role?

Of course we should.

Which brings me to the United Way Building.

We were all underage that day when five of us hopped into the 1959 Ford Galaxie and drove from West Toledo to an inner city carry-out to buy alcohol.

It was the summer of 1967, the night before Martin Luther King was to speak in Detroit. The inner city was on edge. But, that turmoil wasn’t our concern. We were in high school. We were more afraid of getting caught, of having to face our parents, our coaches and the law.
