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.
After that last rough road, I’ll be happy if Matt is entering Yellow Dog without holes in his boots!
Agreed deb….agreed! :)
I really wonder how Matt’s “rig” is doing…I don’t know if those wheels are made for this kind of travel…I suppose if he knew the terrain he was going to travel he would have thought of it…Matt it might be good if you could give us a run down on the shape of the “Mattmobile” through a picture…whatathink huh???…
I’m sure Matt would have posted something if he was having problems with the cart. Like when the tree branch fell and landed on the handle awhile back.
I seen the converted Runabout stroller Matt was pushing & it looks to be in Great Condition. I asked him how many Flats he had on the way, He said None there Soled Tires.
Thanks Big Scott! You were able to get the “insiders” look none of us can get from the website.
Matt – looks like you will soon be out of Idaho! Hope you are feeling a-okay!
Oops – I guess not – you have a couple more days in Idaho – I was looking at the wrong map! Still hope you are feelin a-okay after the bumpy road!
By the way – hope the “cat yellow” wasn’t puma or cougar or mountain lion yellow.
you’re already in Idaho! wow. see any potatoes? I think you’ll be in Oregon a lot sooner than you anticipated. I have enjoyed following your travels. I hope you have a safe trip
Matt would have to take about a 500 mile detour south in Idaho to see spuds — except at the grocery store. ;-} He may possibly see some in E. Washington, and he will be traveling through miles of rolling wheat fields between Western Idaho border and Pasco, Washington.
What about some Washington State apples? or Cherries? I guess apples aren’t in season yet. Some good eats come from out that way. Must be nice to just pick it fresh.
What about black dogs or are those bears? Just from your photo description caption there I now have “smell a vision” with this pic. Thanks.
That whole area is supposed to be disgusting, Matt. Be careful, especially near any water!
Here is the scoop on YELLOW DOG – a mining town and the name comes from a murder mystery –
Elementary my dear Watson!
Boy, really had to watch your back in those days.
I would have never guessed. Thanks for the info.
