I am over halfway on my trip to cross America on foot! AMA!
Hey there Reddit! On may 9th I started my cross country adventure from Charleston, SC. 1700 miles and 3 months later and I'm in Kansas, close to the Colorado boarder. I've wanted to do an AMA for a while but never had the time so I decided I had to make the time or I'd never get to it.
Some frequently asked questions:
Why? The most honest answer I have to this question is "I wanted to." Stuff like needing to find myself or wanting to get away are true in part but mainly I just wanted to go on an adventure.
How far do you walk a day? It varies. The most I've ever done in a day is 41 miles. I think I average about 24.
Where do you sleep? Hotels when I feel like spending the dough, campgrounds when there are some, dark places people won't stumble upon other times.
What do you do for food? I have soylent which is a meal replacement powder you mix with water. That makes about 80% of what I eat. Gas stations and fast-food makes up the rest. I also have 11 liters of water in Camelback's
Edit: gonna get some sleep now so I can walk some more in the morning. I'll answer any more questions as soon as I get up.
Edit 2: I'm back and have a full battery so I can answer questions all day while I walk. Hit me with your best shot.
