Cross-Country Trek Ends at Coney

75-year-old Korean War veteran treks cross-country from starting point; Venice Beach California and finishes at Coney Island. Leonard Johnson first started sketching four decades ago and now completes his year and a half walk just three weeks shy of his birthday and the anniversary of Hurricane Katrina. The disaster had refocused his fundraising efforts to help victims in New Orleans, where he has done sketches several times before. He now plans to paint a 500-foot panoramic canvas of his experiences, including the people he met.
