Book SynopsisAnthony "Tony" Roddy at age 56 put talk with walk, and walked the talk. Tony is living proof of some harrowing experiences that worked out, while over in Iraq. It wasn't easier once I got back to the states. I found myself divorced after 21 years of marriage. Out for a walk is filled with empowering motivational useful advice, animated by moving stories. With "Esmeralda" my granddaughter's stroller which has been modified to carry all my supplies for the trip, we walked from Wells Beach, Maine, to Imperial Beach, California, between April 19th and December 15th, 2015. I crossed 13 states in 244 days, walking approximately 3,073 miles. The book summarizes the formula for daily peace and happiness. This book is told with style and with a little suspense from state to state. Changing negative criticism to positive thinking is my goal with one step at a time.
