Russell's current progress

On May 21, 2009, Russell celebrated his 50th birthday. In honor of this event, he walked from our mountain home in California’s gold country to our primary residence in the Bay Area – a total distance of 160.18 miles – over a period of 12 days.
(As Gail said: “At least it's better than him buying a red sports car.”)

This Web site chronicles Russell’s short and private adventure, as he struggles to deny that he is getting any older.
