2) Walking

Matt Green walked across America in 152 days.

“But perhaps the thing I find most important about walking is how connected it makes me feel to the space I’m passing through. I think it’s because walking is the way we experience our homes. We walk to the fridge, we walk to bed, we walk around the yard. We walk to the copy machine, we walk to the coffee machine, we walk around the grocery store. So this is that same familiar stride, that most basic form of locomotion we know so well, but through vast, immense, unknown places. It’s a way to live a continuous line across the country as if it were my home.”

  1. Maybe if the car ran on fat it could save you money too.

  2. i hear Couch is being translated into Turkish. must be a rumor though or is there another author website for Parzybok that is more updated?

  3. Until I see a contract, I’m going to pretend it’s only a rumor. Albeit a very fun one. My publisher seems a lot more optimistic though:
