A long, long walk at 98 years old

Cross country.  Two times!
  Frank Schrom, in search of his daughters, walked from New Orleans, Louisiana to San Francisco, California and back to Mobile, Alabama.  He completed to New Orleans to San Francisco trek on December 4, 1910.
  It's just unbelievable!  But it's recorded in the New York Times in the December 6, 1910 issue.

Just WOW!

It should be noted that he began walking in 1898 at 86 years old and finished in 1910 at 98.
