Where do I sleep? Who do I meet? What does it feel like to walk across America?
When I set out for this trek and committed to this project, I knew there was no turning back once it began, but I was blindly confident in my mental and physical aptitude to succeed.

Walking didn’t seem like such a daunting task after all.
