Reason #382: Why I Love the Internet: Matt Green Walking 3100 Miles

 
I was late to the party, but about two months ago, I started following the photo blog of Matt Green, who left his job as a highway designer to walk — um, on foot? — from one side of America to the other.

You heard that right. Matt started March 27th of this year at Rockaway Beach, NY. It took him 152 days and 3100 miles pushing an adapted baby stroller holding his tent, clothing and other supplies, but he finally made it yesterday to the other Rockaway Beach, on the Oregon coast.

I love that he made this journey, I love to imagine all the people and situations he encountered along the way, and I love the joy with which he runs into the ocean at the end of a long road!

More on his reasons for walking here.

  1. Check out “A Walk Across America” by Jenkins. I’ve been meaning to read this one for awhile.
