He's calling it Paulie's Push, honoring the first First Responders who gave their lives on September 11th, 2001. Christine and Salt caught up with Paulie on his epic walk, calling him every day (with the exception of Labor Day) during the week proceeding his arrival on 9/11.

Tuesday September 7th, Paulie reveals he made it to New York.

Wednesday, September 8th Paulie enters the Bronx.

Thursday, September 9th Paulie ponders getting closer to his final goal and gives us a laugh reminiscing about his mustache from his flight attendant days.

On Friday, September 10th, Paulie reveals he's only 6 miles away from Ground Zero and he's saving the last mile for 9/11.
