Day 358

Back in action soon!

December 22nd, 2012

The Greens are doing very well now (some family health issues kept me sidelined for much of the fall), and I'll be back to full-time walking by the new year! In the meantime, I'll be posting some backlogged photos below. Thanks to everyone for all the support during the hard times!

    Really glad to hear it, Matt. The Grand Concourse photos from the past few days have been fantastic.

    Merry Christmas everyone and Happy New Year. See you in the New Year Matt. Stay safe and warm.

    Hi Matt,

    Great news on the family front.

    Have a safe and enjoyable Christmas with your family. Relax, unwind and recharge for a fantastic 2013!

    It was a balmy 103 degrees in Melbourne today yet we still listen to Christmas carols about chestnuts roasting on open fires………Crazy huh?

    All the best mate,

    What great news to celebrate a wonderful season! Glad to hear you and your family are doing well. Congratulations Matt! Even with the break, you’ve walked far more this year than your 5-month walk across the country. Looking forward to more of your walk next year. Stay safe. Stay warm. Stay cool. Keep on walking!

    Enjoy the holidays everyone!

    Happy New Year Matt! Glad to see you have posted some new photos and
    that you will be back on your “walk” in the New Year! I have often wondered what
    your photos would have been like during and after Sandy if you were still on your journey.

    We’ve missed you!

    It’s 9:40 on a cloudless new year’s day here in Melbourne Australia. Expected top temperature is 75 degrees. I hope that your new year dawns as bright and as perfect as mine. To all those of the Hobo Nation I hope that 2013 will be a great year.
