"I've got the world on a string" and my dog on a leash.

I was driving on the opposite side of a very busy highway and saw this man with a globe??, I turned around to get on the other side of the highway where he was walking- very curious as to what he was doing
I stopped and talked with him...his cause to Encourage Walking. He had his dog with him...He had made 9 walks in 39 states and his dog walked with him in all 9 walks This walk started in Panama City, Florida and would end in Tampa, Florida. And that is about 360 miles and that is a very long walk...
He believes in his cause. I do not know the significence of the globe??

Maybe there is a little chair inside to have a little rest now and then... he will need one during all his walks..... ;-)

Walk for 360 miles !!!! ... oh my God how I envy him a great adventure .... I have so little time for my dreams ... perhaps I should to give up all the confusion and be really free as he and his dog ...

Very nice catch, although he's on the wrong side of the globe if he wants to hike :)

What an interesting character, great find Barb. And you did exactly what i would have done, you stoped and went up to him to find out the story, and such an interesting one it is too.
