Texas man passes through Lebanon on once-in-a-lifetime journey
STEVE SMITH • SSMITH@LACLEDERECORD.COM
Walking across the street is difficult enough in the current summer heat, but a Texas man, passing through Lebanon Wednesday, isn’t letting it stop his walk across America.
Stephen Ashworth of Terrell, Texas, east of Dallas, wore a sign on his back that read “Walking Across America” as he traveled along Route 66 Wednesday morning.
He said the purpose of his walk is simply to “see the country, especially the way the price of gas is. I couldn’t imagine driving Route 66 right now.”
