We're just hangin' out

This is the cart I'll be pushing across the country. It's a converted Runabout stroller made and generously donated by Roger Berg. Check out the whole photo album.

I'll be out of New York eventually.

Day 3

Hello New Jersey

March 29th, 2010



The south pedestrian path on the GW Bridge has zero stairs. The north path, apparently now the only one open, has twelve flights of stairs. Not much fun with a big cart on a rainy day.

Day 4

Lotsa rain

March 30th, 2010



Everything is massively flooded here.

Day 4




After a miserably rainy day, I was quite moved by the hospitality of Reverend Jen. I just knocked on her door and she let me stay in the warm, dry confines of the education building. She even made me tea and soup, and brought me a Passover Haggadah to make me feel at home. I'm overcome with gratitude.

Day 5

Thanks Raul!

March 31st, 2010



I stopped in Major Hardware Supply in Boonton, NJ to pick up a few things. Raul asked me about my walk and then, when I was ready to check out, insisted on giving me everything for free.

Day 5

Almost there
