Clayton Klein - What a Guy

Thanks all of you who've joined our Clayton Klein, the Walking Man group on Facebook.
He's gotten quite a following of fans over the past five years of walking Michigan from top to bottom for Michigan Hospice Org.
 Did you know that he walked across the state from Lake Michigan to Huron the two years before that?
There are so many aspects to this Fowlerville native. It would take a book to write about 90 years of living outside the box! That's what he told me once, to think outside the box, and find the place where you fit with your gifts and talents.
So, to me, he's been a wonderful teacher, as well. After the walk is over, I hope I'll be able to expand on more about Clayton...his walking, his writing, and what he plans for his next adventures!
Please be patient, as I'm learning about photos and things...and know you'd like more photo galleries. So stay tuned to Facebook and also to my website and blog as they develop. Clayton will always be there:)
Remember...All Things Beautiful Walking!
Tomorrow is Chelsea to Manchester; Sunday Manchester to M52 South to M-223; Monday to Ohio state line....
Well, I really should slip on down to the Gotta Scrap Inn and check out all those beautiful women scrapbookers he keeps talking about on the radio. Stay tuned at WHMI Howell  93.5 for recaps...
And thanks to the radio Merino and Morning Crew for being the great public forum for this remarkable Livingston County resident!
