California... a man is on a mission to walk cross-country from L.A. to New York, all while pulling a cross on his back. He walks 20 miles a day with a support team that supplies him with help along the way. The evangelist says the response has been overwhelming so far and he's actually running into a lot of people from his past, like a marine he met two years ago. He hopes to get to New York in about a year...

Louisiana... quite a site on a road in Shreveport after a truck carrying more than 75,000 corn dogs overturns. The 18-wheeler hit a guard rail and spilled the tasty treats. it took a while to clean up the mess, but no injuries have been reported. The cause of the crash is under investigation...

Florida... you are looking at the world's largest key lime pie. Florida's governor helped serve up slices of the record-breaking dessert, which was made from almost 6,000 key limes and 200 pounds of graham crackers, producing more than 1000 slices. By the way, key lime has been Florida's official pie since 2006. And with that, we've taken a slice out of this USA Update.
