From the Weatherford Democrat- Jon McConal and friends have been walking across Texas and plan to write a book about it. As I was reading, I thought, gee, his name sounds SO familiar and remembered that not only did he used to be a newspaper writer, as well as has written books, but he's from Glen Rose (graduated high school here)

Norm Snyder, Jon McConal and Eddie Lane

“I want people to know you really don’t have any idea what you’re missing when you’re driving,” said McConal, a retired newspaper columnist and author. “When you walk, you really get close to the country and the people.”

The men walked by day and returned to base camp at night. Snyder employed the help of a vehicle to move equipment from camp to camp, leaving McConal and Lane to stroll the Texas highways without burden.

Aside from a slight back injury, some blisters and a few low blood sugar episodes, the men were in great shape.

McConal wants to prove there is no reason for a person to become a couch potato due to age or some other malady.
