I do not understand this sign.

    Matt, Good luck to you as you walk through the “fly-over” part of the country. Been following you for a few weeks since the Eugene paper did a story on you out here in Oregon. Rockaway Beach is waiting…

  2. My friend and I saw many signs that made us say “what” along our travels of the country last year. Keep on walking, I hope you have many story worthy days.

  3. Karen Too says:

    There is a site, sort of, for Red’s Generic Sales. As for the “Agony Acres” part, that’s anyone’s guess.

    Must be tough being a farmer, this land must have been difficult to plow…or something.

    agony acres(original spelling: acher’s) hehe!

  6. Linda K says:

    I’ve been following you for some time now and right about now my feet are getting sore thinking of your feet!! Do your feet ever hurt? Keep the pics and commentary comming..

  7. Jeff says:

    If I may, it is all about the shoes. If you walk long distances…and have the correct shoe/fit/form…walking 10-20 miles … the feet and muscles do get used to it. Soreness can be liminated from “training” and repitition.

    We were “designed” to be bipedal. We just like the convenience of cars, bikes and anything that can get us there faster then our feet.

    I walk 10 miles + a day….and I can honestly say….it is 98% never the feet and calves.

  8. RG says:

    On my long hikes, whenever my feet, ankles, knees, or hips begin to hurt I take off my shoes and go barefoot. Works almost every time to stop the pain. I need to find shoes that work for me, but for now thick callused feet are just fine on most terrain.

    Have fun in Valley City! There is a fun little antiques store…

  10. Linda Connelly says:

    sounds like a horror film title Agony Acres-where no one should dare to tread!
