|New Mile Tracker Board Available
After a strong weekend performance, Congressman Simpson has logged 1058 total miles for the #hikewithMike STEP Challenge. As we cross the one-third mark on the journey from Washington D.C. to Boise, there are several participants keeping the challenge competitive. To see the latest Mile Tracker Boards for both individuals and teams, visit the Idaho STEP Challenge website.
Earlier this week, the challenge crossed the state line separating Wisconsin from Minnesota. We are now following the famous Blue’s Highway (Route 61) which prior to the interstate highway system was an import North-South path running from New Orleans to Wyoming.
The roadway has been iconized in music and film by artists including Bob Dylan, Sunnyland Slim, James “Son” Thomas, “Honeyboy” Edwards, Big Joe Williams, Joe McCoy, Charlie Musselwhite, Eddie Shaw, Johnny Young, Eddie Burns, and Mississippi Fred McDowell.
