That's the idea, at least. I'm walking westward from New York City for nine months or so.
If everything goes according to plan, I'll be in Oregon when the clock runs out.
If nothing goes according to plan, maybe I'll end up in Peru or Mongolia or Pennsylvania.

A clean community—articulate, too?
I wonder what exactly “A Clean Community” means. How does a community earn that designation, or more likely, how does a community decide to designate it as such? Was there a borough council meeting in which members complained about how dirty their community was, and they decided to enact a specific program to mitigate the uncleanness?
I’m assuming “clean” refers to a lack of litter. It could also refer, I suppose, to vices (strip clubs, porn stores, bars, etc.), or pollution, or lack of hobos (ahem).
It’s just hilarious that a borough would brag about its cleanliness, as if most other boroughs are in fact NOT clean.
I was about to make a slam on New Jersey (I figured somebody had to), but then I decided to do a quick Google first. Turns out, it’s an official designation: http://www.state.nj.us/dep/newsrel/2006/06_0024.htm
Aha! Looks like your Google Fu is stronger than mine.
Or is it simply my dedication to not doing work at work?
Are you questioning my dedication to not-working?… Perhaps it’s time for a NOT WORK-OFF.
The great thing is that no one since 1894 has entered Rockaway Borough with a cart like what’s on that sign. UNTIL NOW, BUDDY!!! You’ll leave there a town hero. Well, a borough herough rather.
Sweetie, I’ve got a TELEVISION at my desk.
That was intended for Jason, naturally.
Oh wait, what was that? Sorry, I was too busy wasting time on the internet for the last 20 hours that I didn’t notice you’d responded.
You may have won the battle, sir, but the war rages on.
Debra and I drove by this sign last Sunday on our way to a wedding in New Jersey!
Things are starting to come full circle.
:) Do you two know each other!?!?!? :)
I know Jason. But not Debra.
Thank to Barbara K. for “cleaning” up that matter with her link. It’s one of THOSE “clean” communities!
