Roy Gleiter said if he can complete his journey, then so can resolute Americans make the economic and political systems speak for them.
As cars passed by Gleiter's camp site just outside Buford on S.C. 9 last week, they honked. Gleiter is a homeless man who's traveling by foot with his mother, Debra Cowden, and their dog, Pofer. Their destination is the state of Washington.
Gleiter, 49, not only has a long trip ahead, but a heavy load to carry. He's pulling a nearly 5,000-pound wagon, full of possessions. His mother and their dog are following him.
