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.
Are those blackberries?
Watch out for bears!
Yeah, the kinds that drive around in pickup trucks! lol
Based on day 142 photos – you might have a hard time NOT SEEING a bear – IF it was in the area.
I believe the folks in WA are spoiled…
Yes we are. :) I feel spoiled each spring, summer and fall when we have the most awesome fruits and veggies that grow like crazy here. These blackberries are found naturally all over the place…and oh so good when they are right off the vine. I’ve gone out and gotten a ton of berries and made jam. It’s SO YUMMY! :)
How do we order some? And I mean from you. he he.
Western NY, too, many wild on trails and roadsides!
Been there, done that earlier in Arkansas…it’s not the bears to worry so much about…it’s the “chiggers”…ever had them “bite” you???…big welts…itch like crazy…they are so small you can’t see them, they run up the body like champs…and when they get on a warm blooded animal…or person…watch out…shorts and t shirt not the way to go…last for a number of days…the chiggers don’t actually bite…the love to get at the dissolved flesh that is made when they inject their “wonder serum under your skin…they use that for “food” for to procreate…
Yeah man! Have I ever! Don’t go out in tall grass after a rain – the chiggers are very active at that time as well!
One word: DEET!
I’m surprised to hear you say such words in this time, Jim. I’m a little disappointed also and hope it is just a slip of the tongue. In case you have been in a cave for 20 years, I will enlighten you. “They” would like to be referenced to as “cheegroes”. Just the way it is in this day of political correctness.
It’s not hard to see who is still living in a cave eh Norwood? lol
Did they taste as yummy as they look?
Don’t eat too many – especially if they aren’t quite ripe.
Do they have the same effect as eating too many dried plums (prunes) Nancy?
berry good for you!
weird, flickr says goff oregon. google maps says no such place. didnt think matt was that far along already.
and what’s the saying? “blackberries are red when they’re green”
If you think the blackberries are good, wait until you taste the blueberries that await you near the coast. You will see blueberry signs before you start down the Wilson River!
I tried blackberries for the first time last year and they are so good! Not a big fruit eating family so haven’t tried to many different ones. But these look oh so good fresh on the vine! Yummy! Hope you enjoyed every bit of them Matt. Thank you Mother Nature!
Dorinda, there’s a world of flavor explosions waiting to happen your mouth. Fresh peaches, raspberries, blueberries, canteloupe, so much more. What was that famous berry that Montana is known for? And that one, too! Taste on, girl!
A veritable feast!
Wow!! Nature’s jewelry. Just look at those vibrant colors! Everything one shade of brown or another right now in Austin. Can’t wait for fall!
