I am Edward Mjelde, I have walked over 5,000 miles across the country without rides. Now, I quasi-secretly live out of my vehicle while maintaining a career job. AMA.
Hello my name is Edward Mjelde, I have completed a walk over 5,000 miles, coast-to-coast, across the USA from Delaware to California using the American Discovery Trail as a guide. The walk took me about 13 cumulative months, split into two periods of walking, with a break during the winter of 2013-2014.
Immediately after finishing my walk in October 2014, I took a loan out for a 2014 Ford Escape and started living out of it. I started working on the assembly line for a manufacturing company and was later promoted to a Regional Sales Manager.
I continue to enjoy living out of my vehicle, it simply makes life more meaningful for me. I have no personal storage unit or side apartment. All of my belongings fit and are easily accessible in my trunk. I do not store anything on my passenger seats or in the floor space of my vehicle.
