January 10, 2017, I embarked on my journey walking across the United States. I followed the American Discovery Trail on the southern route until I reached Denver. There I paved my own way with google maps and the advice from locals until I reached the Pacific Ocean at Bodega Bay, CA. September 21, 2017, a little over eight months later, I finished with 3,300 miles under my belt.

This journey provided me with the opportunity to witness and experience the world around me in the purest way possible, on foot. Here’s the big question, Why? Why did I want to walk across the country on foot? My answer, why not? My list of responsibilities was the smallest it may ever be and I wanted to learn more about myself. One of the main questions that I developed along the way was, “How do I help people help themselves?” Now, I’m seeking out that answer.
