Week 2 results are in for our walk to Miltonvale, Kansas and we are making some serious progress!! Last week we made it from the Milton Community Hall to Fredericton, New Brunswick. This week we saw a significant increase in progress. Going from accumulating 285 km in week one to 857 km in week two! (1,071,671 steps) Great job everyone! We have crossed the border into the United States, and we are currently on the I-95 in Exeter, Rhode Island. Exeter was formed in 1742. They have a population of 6,425. Some cool attractions in the area are the Yawgoo Valley Ski Area and Water Park, the Pachaug State Forest Headquarters, and the Tomaquag Museum. In the late 1800’s, it was believed that Exeter had a vampire problem, it was even considered the vampire capital of the United States. Linked is an interesting vampire story from the town. https://newengland.com/…/vampire-mercy-brown-rhode-island/
