#GreatWalk: Day 4

[This post includes my tweets (@jteevan) from the fourth day (July 21, 2014) of Cale and my 100 mile walk to Great Wolf!]

The route for #Day4 of our #GreatWalk to #GreatWolf#100miles

En route to S38th St in Tacoma. Lots of lunch options: El Zocalo, Vien Dong, Pho Dragon. Help us! Which should we choose? #GreatWalk

Crossing the Puyallup River and some train tracks. We've seen lots of tracks on our walk, and wonder which will bring us home. #GreatWalk

Enjoying factory seconds at the Almond Roca (@WorldOfRoca) factory. #GreatWalk

Lunch verdict: Vien Dong. #GreatWalk

Lunch at Vien Dong was great - goi cuon and lemongrass chicken. Now on to Wapato Park to eat more Almond Roca. #GreatWalk

Enjoying a break at Wapato Park. Then it's just 5 miles to our @HIExpress in Lakewood. #GreatWalk

#Day4 lesson: The perfect mapping software for walking would take into account elevation changes, and not just distance. #GreatWalk

Cale's surprised by the amount of barbed wire we've seen this walk. I'm surprised by the number of topless espresso stands. #GreatWalk

Made it to the @HIExpress in Lakewood. Now for a little TV and a dip in the pool. #GreatWalk

#Day4 lesson: Extra room in the pack's a must - for boxes of factory seconds candy, garage sale marbles, #TreasureHunt loot, etc. #GreatWalk

Agua fresca and papusas at El Pulgarcito. #GreatWalk

Good night, #Day4. Cale and I are feeling strong this evening. I think we're over the hump! #GreatWalk

Uh-oh. Thunderstorms predicted for Olympia on July 23rd. Here's hoping the forecast changes for the better. #GreatWalk

<< Day 3 ........ Day 5 >>
