Kansas man walks halfway across state

Henry Fortunato

A man who walked halfway across the state chronicled his adventures in a speech at Washburn University.

Henry Fortunato is from Overland Park and he gave a talk about his trek in October 2012 that took him from his home to Wichita.

The 240 mile walk took him 13 days across different landscapes in Kansas and gave him a fresh perspective on the state he calls home.

Fortunato moved to Kansas in 1997 and had been thinking about a walking trip across the Sunflower State since then.
