Thanks, everyone. I look forward to keeping you all posted, and hopefully meeting some of you.
paulflexes saidDo you need a travel assistant to
lick wipe the sweat off your body as you walk?
Hahah... Wanna be my sherpa?
citpolo saidYou should get a shoe sponsor, or maybe EMS or REI. This is a very cool idea. Good luck on the road!
I'm trying to. We'll see if anyone agrees.

I received a fellowship from ASU to fund this project, so I'm definitely going through Phoenix.
Friendsrbetter saidHope you have a drive-along companion for company and emergencies.
Oh...and will you be wearing your signature BOW TIE ???
I'm going solo, but some friends have offered to come walk and camp with me for a day or two at various points along the way. I'm thinking of packing at least one bow tie, for good measure.
Zettabyte saidHow are you doing this? E.g. shelter, food, supplies, etc.
Carrying everything on my back... I'll probably camp out most nights, but I'll stay at motels at least a couple times a week, and with friends or kind strangers whenever possible. So if you have a couch to offer along the way, let me know!
Zettabyte saidOne question about the route... all of the cities in your route are more or less well known and interesting... except Frederick. Why? I grew up 20 minutes south of there and I can tell you... there's nothing there to be terribly excited about. Was it just to avoid walking directly through Baltimore or something?
Avoiding the NY-DC urban corridor is precisely the reason why. I've driven that way too many times. Figured I'd go off the beaten path.
