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.

You should see it at night! There are blue lights on the sides – very pretty. When they were first turned on, I think there were a lot of near-wrecks at that intersection from people staring at it.
Whoa, that beautiful structure is for pedestrians and bicyclists only? Clearly this city has its priorities straight! Much different from your experience in NJ.
It’s for bikes and pedestrians only. It connects the two sides of the Midtown Greenway. Welcome to Minneapolis.
You’ll get to see the first one built in the US when you get to the Tri-Cities (Pasco/Kennewick/Richland), WA. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cable_Bridge
The way the cables and the steel beam make it look like wings makes me think of the wings on the Milwaukee Art Museum and the pedestrian bridge that connects to it.
