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 can read all about the details of my trip
if you're so inclined.
I hope i am never 110.. but it is awesome that he will be remember for a long time to come though this tree… Great job Pete….
That’s a pretty cool list.
I was tempted to comment earlier this week when I saw the flat landscape of the prairie – I just finished reading a book, “Giants in the Earth,” by O.E. Rolvaag. It is about early Norwegian settlers to the prairie west of Minnesota – that flat landscape can do funny things to a person – or so the story went. But I had to write today! Two of the secondary characters in the book are brothers Henry and Sam Solum! Peter here is just the right age to be one of their sons…
I hope you are finding the landscape inspiring and welcoming.
Neat, thats a cool find Martha ;-)
OMG I WOULD LOVESS TO MAKE IT TO 110 BY AGE AND WEIGHT,LOL
Matt, really really enjoying keeping up with you daily. What an adventure. I would really like to know how many miles you travel each day and how many miles you have traveled so far. I sure hope you write a book about your travels!
MATT FACT: give or take a 100 miles……
Miles traveled ~ 1458, time by car…25hrs
Time by Matt’s Timbeland’s and sandals: 78 days. Time spent enjoying america by foot…..Timeless…I mean priceless…..
He has got to have averaged about 20-25 miles a day that I can plot out….
But hay I am a armchair follower.
Almost to Fargo. Better watch it or else ya could end up like ol’ Pete here. Avoid the wood chippers. Keep up the amazing adventure!
hmmm….any recent wood chipper purchases by little green plastic men…who look like toy soldiers?????
I don’t think they can put their guns down to get out money to buy one. Here’s hoping.
It’ll be a Barbie that gets him. Watch the Barbies closely Matt!
Thanks again Matt. More and more information about America each day.. keep on trekking!
God bless Pete.
My great-uncle is on the list…..that is awesome
