Saw on twitter. No one has heard from nick in 5 days. Probably somewhere off highway 62 between Parker a 29 palms CA. If you're in the area please see if you can locate him. Contact his Family on twitter @california79 & keep him in your prayers.

Man, I hope he is okay! Hopefully he just decided to cut himself off from technology for the last leg of his journey.

Saw that, thanks. Noticed it on the twitter feed too. Have to confess, I knew nothing about this journey prior to this thread. Hope he turns up soon and all is good.

Does he always walk along the highway? Does he ever try short cuts?

doesnt usually take short cuts, waiting for Daniel Blair to email me his course map and I will update what I find out in the morn, i should be in 29 palms when the sun is up. My guess if nothing is wrong he is about 10-20 miles east of 29 palms on hwy 62. Ill post something as soon as I know anything. There are a few others gonna go search too and the sheriff is on the case now. I called all area hospitals and he is not in any of them FYI.

I grew up in 29 Palms so I made a Facebook post about it to let everyone I know thats still in the area to keep an eye out. Hope everything turns out to be OK... My mother lives in 29 Palms and is also a nurse at Desert Regional Medical Center in Palm Springs, which is where they usually haul people to when things are serious. Ill try to spread the word out there!

I've been following his journey since ms/al. Hopefully his ipod crashed and he doesn't have any way to keep us all updated. He is so close to the end, it is amazing how far he has come!

I'm praying and hoping everything is ok with him, and we can hear from him soon enough.

Thanks PJ. Yeah I decided to make an account on here just for this. I seen him a ways out of 29 palms. He was pushing a basket of what looked like food and water. Im sure he's ok and by now in the town of 29 palms. I actually just made it home from Parker and didn't see him on the hwy anywhere on the way back.

Regardless of your ignorance, that is not the issue at hand right now. He is missing and no one knows where he is. Hope he is ok and is found.

As if bashing on DC and Lake Elsinore didn't score you enough points, now you have to smart off on Hobo Nick when clearly, people are concerned for his safety/whereabouts. Are you trying to replace Vince Friese as the most "loved" person on Vital? Hoping nothing but the best for Nick.

I have been following him also and kind of worried about him. Did anybody else notice the pic he posted of the guy driving (I think) a Mustang and the guy stopped to tell him to hold on because something big was coming ?
I hope he is OK.
