A walk with 'Toddzilla'
Georgia man on journey from Tybee to San Diego

Part spiritual conquest, part health initiative and all adventure: two North Georgia men have set out on a journey to turn their lives around and get a sense of America the only way they know how — by experiencing it one step at a time. Thursday, those steps brought Todd Gouge, 42, and son Collin, 20, through Statesboro, where the Monroe natives continued what they hope to be a nearly 3,000-mile march from one coast to another. Making brief stops at Walmart, for a night’s rest, and convenient stores to rehydrate and refuel, the Gouges lumbered alongside Northside Drive 10 days after embarking on a hike leading across the Unites States from Tybee Island to San Diego.
