Walkingman's 2013-14 walk across Arizona, Ecuador and Peru.10-28-13 to 3-28-14

Howdy from Gary "Walkingman" Hause. Just finished up working the summer at the Marriott Courtyard at Page, Arizona, and ready for my next big walk. Leaving Page, Arizona October 28th 2013 and walking south for Phoenix. Just going to amble along and enjoy myself, no hurry, no worries, as the Australians say. Will probably do a loop around southern Arizona to Phoenix, and then fly to Cuenca, Ecuador on 12-28-13 to continue my walk through South America. I stopped my journey across Ecuador after I ran into some problems 5 or 6 years ago. You can read about it under the South America heading on my website. Will take a break for Thanksgiving to spend time with family, then another break for Christmas to go back to Page Arizona and spend it with family. Hoping to walk all the way to Lima Peru on this trip. Looks like about 1400 miles on the mountain route. The coast route is shorter but goes through mostly desert with long stretches of no towns. So about 90 days at 15 mpd. Also need to look into how I take my IPhone with me. Anybody know if it is best to set up a plan when I get there or beforehand with my phone company here? Feel free to email me with advice or tips if you have traveled this route.

Started a Facebook page just last year. I have a smart phone with camera now that I can post photos on my Facebook page with. So I think I will continue writing a 2 or 3 page article and emailing it out to all my email friends and posting it on my website every 2 or 3 weeks. Also I will take photos every day when I see something interesting and post it on my Facebook page with a short note. So feel free to check out my Facebook page and friend me, gary walkingman hause, page arizona. Will have to see how my service plan is and how often I will be able to send updates to Facebook and my website.

So far I have walked about 25,467 miles across the USA, Europe, UK, Mexico, Central America, South America, Australia, and New Zealand. I have about 14,000 more miles to walk across Asia, Africa, and South America to break the Guinness Book World Record of 38,000 miles for walking around the world, set by Arthur Blessit (www.blessitt.com). Although they no longer list his world walking record in their book every year, they skipped 5 years, then put it in the 2007 edition with a photo of him dragging his cross. Plus he is still walking about one month a year dragging a big wooden cross and preaching about Jesus and adding to his total. So I might have a hard time catching up with him and passing him till he quits walking. There is also several other people walking the world that have websites that I will include in a later article.

I will be working till October 27th 2013 in Page, Arizona if anyone wants me to give a free talk about my world walk to any local schools or groups. I always try to encourage students to turn off the TV or computer and get outside and walk or bike and have a real adventure. Email me at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

I have given talks at the local schools and have been interviewed at the local radio station here in Page, Arizona many times.
