Randy Boehmer of Arizona takes a break from his cross-country travel in the Kennewick Walmart parking lot with his covered wagons and team of five Belgian draft mules.
Boehmer started his travels from Bedford, Ind., on April 1, 2008, after the death of two family members made him realize, “the futility at chasing things of the world,” said Boehmer.
He decided to travel in the covered “Jesus Wagon” to tell people about God after learning how to put horseshoes on the animals and attending a Bible school.
So far, he’s been in 27 states and plans his route to be north in the summer and south in the winter.
He expects to be the Tri-City area for a couple days after stocking up on his food supplies.
Then he’s headed to Montana.
