Aho! The power of your prayers frightened those still against us, like the Ohio cops. Long live the Red Peoples! I am not sure which way these walkers went into Pennsylvania, but I remember Wheeling, WV was the only part of West Virginia that the 1978 walk went through. We ran all those tunnels and nearly getting carbon monoxide poisoning, and that one tunnel that came out onto a huge bridge that crossed into Pittsburg. Thank you, Relatives! May Tunkacula watch over all of you. -Bahe from Big Mtn.
