The Long Walk
I've been tracking the story of this guy ever since I read about him in the NY Times a couple of weeks ago.
He's trying to walk across America, starting in San Diego and ending in New York.
This is his official site. It has maps of his route and a journal that his wife has been updating.
It looks like it's been a tough journey so far. He's been plagued by blisters, a heavy pack, dehydration and the extreme heat. He was expecting to get to New York by October, but he's only in Arizona right now.
My feet hurt just reading about it. I wish there was something I could do to help him! If I owned an enormous, souped-up RV, I'd be out there right now, driving alongside him. #
