Day 128

A bumpy ride

August 1st, 2010


  1. Candice In Alabama says:

    oh my Matt – I’m feeling the bumps!

  2. Julie in Cincinnati says:

    Oh my gosh! I can’t imagine walking/hiking this solo, much less while pushing a heavy cart. I’m guessing there are rocks and pebbles embedded in the tires as well as your walking boots. No wonder they call it a primitive road! Be safe!

  3. deb says:

    Are you kidding me?! How long is the rough (dangerous?) stretch of road?!

  4. Chris says:

    I’m sure you appreciate the “Colorado Rockies” a bit more, now don’t cha?

  5. Jim in AR via MN says:

    Doesn’t look like fun to me!!!…

  6. Jeff says:

    so much for Vicarious….right now, eh???

    • Donna in MI says:

      Hay Jeff,
      It’s a good thing we are walking vicariously through him. I wouldn’t want to physically be walking in his boots right about now.

    • Candice In Alabama says:

      This image makes my ankles hurt, vicariously, of course.

  7. Dorinda from Mentor, Oh. says:

    I worry about the wear and tear on those tires of yours. If the tire go, do you have spares? That looks like it would rip them right apart. And your shoes too. That’s just got to be so hard on your legs and back. Gonna need a good massage after all this. Anyone know of a good spa or hot spring Matt can go soak in?

  8. Janine says:

    Yikes! Good luck on that one!

  9. Vivian from CA says:

    Gosh! These are moments when I have to sing to keep my mind occupied and my feet moving :)

  10. MN Roxanne says:

    Looks like the road down isn’t a breeze… so rocky… watch your step…. take care Matt…

  11. kheavner says:

    Oh dear, do be careful with the back, feet and ankles!

  12. Don in Tennessee says:


    If anyone from Idaho asks you who you are and what your are pushing; just say I am head of the HOBO NATION and this is a SPUDNIK STATION WAGON I am pushing and I am doing spudtaneous undercover work. They will just think your brains are fried taters!

    Hope those boots and wheels are holding up on this terrian. Doesn’t look very good to me for walking or pushing.

    Take care and be safe.

  13. jerry's kid says:

    We all guessed you’d get through Idaho QUICKLY but with roads like these you’ll be there for another month!

  14. Karen Too says:

    More “Rocky” road.

  15. Brittney says:

    At least your not going uphill again?
