You may have heard the story of the Michigan man who walks 21 miles round trip to his factory job, but an Iowa man can top that.

61-year old Steve Simoff from Davis City, in extreme south central Iowa, works at an Osceola casino 35 miles away. He works at 11 each night and often leaves home at 3:30... and starts walking.

Steve often gets rides from those who recognize him, but make no mistake he's not a hitch-hiker. Walking may not be his first choice, but with a 13-year old vehicle at home and large family medical bills, sometimes it's the only way.
