    And now it’s off to the Smithsonian.

  4. Mary says:

    Say it ain’t so Matt…

  5. Belle Zora says:

    Ooh man…I actually teared up. So happy for Matt; so sad that it’s over.

  6. katzien in austin says:

    I wonder how Matt feels as the end nears?? Reply one more time Matt…for old time’s sake. :-)

  7. Doris says:

    That picture was taken on the 23rd and he said last campsite. So where is he tonight? Oh Matt, where are you tonight? Inquiring minds want to know.

  8. Yeahh that’s roughin’ it!

  9. Tna says:

    So a soft bed tomorrow? or will you like Tom Hanks in Cast Away find youself only able to sleep on the floor? Enjoy you last nigt of foot loose and fancy freedom under a full moon and starry sky.

  10. Gigi says:

    The tent will be missed for sure. Oh, the stories it could tell!

  11. Donavon says:

    God love ya, brother …you’re my hero.

  12. Nick in Ohio says:

    I think I need a hug!

  13. Ruthie in CA says:

    We are all sooooo proud of you Matt….now, make another plan and we will follow…

  14. Christopher says:

    Forrest Gump: I had run for 3 years, 2 months, 14 days, and 16 hours.

    Quiet, quiet! He’s gonna say something!

    Forrest Gump: I’m pretty tired… I think I’ll go home now.


  15. Don in Tennessee says:


    Eureka is a tent maker and a good one. They make camping supplies, tents for the military and party and event tents. Does the Hobo Planet treasurey have enough money to purchase a party tent? It is almost party time and we will need it to celebrate Matt’s feet or is it feat. The second one smells more like it. Also a different company that makes vacumm cleaners.

    I believe this is a coverup! I have been meaning to ask you if by chance had met some friends of mine who have camped all over the United States. There last name is Coleman. There is Stove Coleman, Lantern Coleman and Cooler Coleman. I believe you would know them if you saw them. After all they are Green like you!

  16. LadyTetsu says:

    holy cow, man – I’d so do a victory dance for you, but I’d look pretty dumb. Sleep well!

  17. JLarrry says:

    Ironic that the last campsite would situated in the Greater Idiotville Area, lol!

  18. Michael in Atlanta says:

    wow, matt. You did it!

  19. Laura in TX says:

    Matt, if this was your last night in your tent (last night) I hope you are somewhere in a nice cool motel/hotel room with a very comfortable bed so you can sleep like a king. You are the king of Hobo Planet you know and you deserve every bit of it.

  20. Dorinda from Mentor, Oh. says:

    That sure does look like one uncomfortable camp site. yeow! stick up my behind. ouch. darn things. : )
    Glad and sad here. Matt you’ve got to be glad you’ve made your goal and have made some accomplishment there. We here on your blog, the hobo planet, will be sad to see this end, hopefully it doesn’t end to soon and the site stays up, and we are elated for you at the same time. Way to go Matt!

  21. Ditto to all above. I have a new Hero! Superman move over! Matt Green has taken your space. I am really speechless. Everyone has said it – what could I add to it, but my name. I so admire you. I actually get a bit choked up…thinking about it all. Being so close to the end of your journey. And yet, I have a feeling it is only the start of your life. God has protected you with every step. Your friends and followers (bet you never knew there would be so MANY) have learned so much through you and your pictures. Love of Country, which needs love now more than ever. A big thanks to the people out there who gave you shelter and food. I, personally, am amazed at the friendships formed on this blog. Well, I could go on and on and on. This was your personal journey. Not an easy one. But, your almost there and then you can say shout to the world… I DID IT! And Matt, if you want to cry at the end, you just go ahead and cry! We all want to let out our emotions and cry with you. Tears of happiness! Oh, Oh, I am choking up now. Time to go…….

  22. Jeff says:

    our tears will blend into a river. And matt can sail home safely.
    Nice words Karin. Well said. You have put more then your Name…you gave us insight to a place you knew so well. Without the education..some pictures are just that. Kleenex is in ilse 5. : }

  23. Jeff R says:

    3000+ miles in about 5 months…, that’s a big deal. Not sure it could have been done any better. Your walk ends, mine is about to begin. I’ve learned lots from watching your walk, and hopefully can put that to use over the next 7 or so months. California, here I come………

    • katzien in austin says:

      Seriously Jeff?? Are you planning a big walk?? You gotta let us know buddy! Way to go.

    • Howard from Napa, CA says:

      Jeff R,
      Please elaborate !
      Where are you starting from, and where are you heading? Are you hopefully planning a blog like this one? Did you get inspiration about necessary equipment from Matt’s itemized list?
