Man makes cross-country walk with his goat

SALINA, Kan. (AP) — A man walking across the country with a goat to raise money for a Kenyan charity is hitting the halfway point of his journey.

The Salina Journal (http://is.gd/63mncf ) reports that Steve Wescott set off on in May from the Space Needle in Seattle. Now, he’s crossing through Kansas with his pack goat as he makes his way toward Times Square in New York City.

His primary goal is to raise $200,000 to help a longtime friend build an orphanage in Kenya.

Wescott says he’s made friends and been treated to kindness along the way. As he walked Thursday along the shoulder of Kansas 140 between Salina and Brookville, a driver pulled over to give him a bottle of water, a can of tea and a couple of granola bars.
