  4. MN Roxanne says:

    A favorite hobo shadow, bic lighter, some pebbles….. great photo!!

  5. Christopher says:

    Why did the lighter cross the road? Coz a but was on the other side.

  6. Dorinda from Mentor, Oh. says:

    A shadow of a man. But alas it’s Matt Green the walkin’ man from NYC. Really neat “mistake” photo there. You caught the bic lighter there in the pic. You have a thing for road junk remember? We haven’t seen any in a while. This little guy wanted to get in the picture too.

  7. EDL in MN says:

    It is good to have a pic of the road surface.

  8. Martha says:

    I don’t see your thumb in this one.

  9. John in MI says:

    Something tells me this has been a familiar sight for Matt over the last few months.

  10. Thomas says:

    Actually, this will be a good remembrance shot for you … despite all the wonderful views and vistas and interesting objects you’ve shared with us, you’ve probably spent more overall time looking at something just like this during your trip. Although etched into your subconscious you now have this to chronicle the memory.

  11. Andrea says:

    You really captured the essence of the rare, purple bic mini lighter in it’s natural surroundings…

  12. Don in Tennessee says:


    I know you are getting close but you need to curb your excitement about finishing 4 months early. Calm down and think about what you have just put the Hobo Planet through-over 300 posts for one photo on the blog and it was about concern for your safety! I mean you were walking in circles based on some comments and I was afraid one of the wheels for the mattmobile had fallen off and you were going in circles. Thank goodness your and the Mattmobile are safe!

    The “Road Matt Traveled”.
