iWARRIORWALK USA TOUR – STOP #12
WALKED ON AUGUST 29, 2010
On Sunday, August 29, 2010, I (Stanley Bronstein) walked for 5 hours in Ontario, Oregon.
The Oregon leg of the tour went well:
- I found a penny while walking. “I’m going to be rich before this tour is over if this keeps up.
- I met some nice people.
- The drive through Oregon to Lake Tahoe was awesome. I combined two short videos of the scenery into a 2 minute video you can scene immediately below.
