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.
Wow, they must have a serious meth problem there; that’s so sad.
Yes they do. The highest concentration of meth labs, in the nation, are believed to be in this area of montana.
at least they’re addressing it and making signs… hope folks are reading them and getting the message!
Chaser are you going to be able to see Matt at all in MT?? just wondering…. glad you’re keeping an eye on the sky for him!
considering the population is less than 500 and mostly old people – I believe your a bit off
I thought it was in Missouri.
Nope no serious Meth problem – the youth through out the state were challenged to create ads.
That’s a relief – this is a great anti-meth sign.
It is called “The Montana Meth Project”. Montana teens paint the State.
I love the idea. They need to do this for ecstasy out here. :o(
Meth sucks, Meth kills…it is dangerous to those that make, take, and try to stop it’s production.
Glad to see the problem is “out there”. I would say every town has Meth problem..just not out in the “open”.
Maybe not town but city.
If only the people who try it could see that they can get “high” on life and following Matt. I think meth is a problem no matter where you are and that is so sad. What I don’t understand is why people put a meth lab in the back seat of their car. Unreal.
It’s interesting how the sign reflects what’s familiar to the population. . . . firearms.
Meth is Russian Roulette. This stuff is nasty and will make a 20 year old look like they are 40 or 50 in no time. I do not understand the point. But I guess us babies from the 50’s are weird!
Oh! Time for a Yuengling!
Hope we can do something to keep people of of Meth!
Alcoholism is also a huge problem on the great plains.
Montana is ranked #2 for issues with meth. Follow link….http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/meth/map/textonly.html
Thay have some real problems across the state.
Please be real careful.
DON’T DO METH
our town had ‘Don’t Meth-around’ and ‘Bait cars everywhere’ banners hanging from the ‘welcome to’ sign a few years back…stupid. I think they quickly realized how stupid it looked and they were promptly taken down. We are the gateway to Whistler BC and I’m sure the Olympic committee didn’t care too much for the negative campaign. tee hee.
A great comparison, and accurate too. It makes me think of the anti-drug ad that showed an egg being fried in an overheated pan. The message was, “This is your brain. This is your brain on drugs.” Remember it? Most people do.
Unfortunately, Matt has entered Meth Country which is pretty much every mid-size town and smaller across the western states. I’m from east of Los Angeles and it’s out there, not so much in the city though. I’m in Portland, Oregon now and it’s around here too.
Matt, I’m still following your progress. I enjoy the comments and observations you make along your way. God speed. And remember, many folks like me are living your dream vicariously. Jim from Kansas
