    Hi Matt,

    I came across your story in the local paper; i’m envious! As a kid, I read about a guy who walked acrss the US and wrote about it in National Geographic magazine. His story was inspiring as is yours and will give me something to think about as i sit in my cubical at work. Between you and Abby Sunderland (solo circumnavigation) I’ve got people who I can vicariously through! Best wishes and stay safe.

    A mailbox with character! I’m sure it’s even more of a sight in the winter when there’s snow!

  7. Kel says:

    You are an inspiration. And it is great to have a little faith restored in humanity. Reading about all the people who have been nice and generous to you definitely restore that faith a good bit. I will enjoy checking in on your progress. I wish you the best of luck.

    Hey – have u considered posting google ads up on your site? With all the traffic your site is getting, you could be making money while walkin’ around. Also, you could put up a paypal donation link for people to send you money – I’m in CA, but I’d love to be able to make a donation of some kind so you could get food or upgrade your supplies!

  9. Chris says:

    I know that Matt is not actively soliciting money for his trip, however, I was wondering if someone could set up a paypal account so I could make a donation of a couple of bucks. I am sure that if the front page of this site had a link that people would contribute. I understand that Matt is not begging or looking for help, however: I feel inclided to support him. I look forward to Matt passing through our area so I can meet him and possibly buy him a meal or something to make the trip just a bit more enjoyable. If that is possible!

    I am so jealous of Matt actually doing what I have said I was going to do for too many years. Hats off to you Matt and please stay safe. Chris

    I just love the mailbox pictures! You should definitely put a book together after your trip and use all the pictures you took/will take:)

  12. Karen Too says:

    Love the shadow it casts now, and the ideas of the ones it will cast throughout its days.

    This one could be an argument for a showy welder. ;-)
