Jimmy Wayne is getting a big party in Texas on Friday when he arrives in Amarill

 which is the estimated halfway point of his Meet Me Halfway walk to Phoenix, Arizona for homeless teens. Jimmy tweeted, "I cannot believe I've walked to Texas from Nashville." His walk has been made a bit easier by lightening his load a bit. Wayne said, "Since I've stopped wearing my backpack, I've been able to pick up my [walking] pace. I've felt my knees and my back get sore out here on the road, but the key for me has been stretching, wearing the right shoes, and drinking a lot of water. I'm making sure I take stretch breaks throughout the day, because my hamstrings have a tendency to tighten up. You know, in hindsight, I don't know if there is a way you can train for something like this. I didn't. I've just always been really active and I felt like I could pull it off."

Jimmy continues to receive some very special gifts on his journey. He explains to AOL's The Boot, "People are giving me crosses every day now because I mentioned it one time in my tweet that I wanted to take the cross that I was wearing and give it to one of the kids there in Phoenix when I see them. The next day, and every day since then, I get crosses from my fans who come out to support project Meet Me Halfway. It's turned into quite a cross collection now out on the road. I got 28 crosses today." He says it's cool he is swamped with cross necklaces, but he can't wear them all or he'd "look like Mr. T!" Wayne expects to arrive in Phoenix sometime in May or June.
