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.

Those are likely brands for livestock; at least that’s what they look like to me:
P.S. Congrats for month number five on the road!

Karen: it’s only been 14 1/2 weeks. just a little over 3 months 1 week. on the other hand, vicariously, it’s amazing all the places Matt has shown others, in his travels.
VICARIOUS alert, VICARIOUS alert
Hi chalk mark. Thanks, I’m aware of that, but I’m talking about calendar months; he started in March.
I believe those are brands – like from branding irons for cattle/sheep.
I’m with those guessing brands for livestock. And congrats to Matt for his journey – regardless the exact length of time! (I’d still be in Ohio or somewhere in PA!)
Yes, I agree that those look like brands.
When I saw them my first thought was… brands
It’s the missing message from the tv show LOST.
These are cattle brands, likely from notable or long established ranchers and ranch company’s in the area. You will see more examples of “brand brandishing” as you head into the high plains.
Hey that’s neat!
