  1. I live in KY and (I'll check with my husband), but I think we could put you up for a couple of nights. We live in the top of KY and we eat meat but enjoy vegetarian foods a couple times a week (we could even accomodate a macrobiotic diet). PM me if interested.

    I'm in awe man! What you are attempting will be impossible for most people to comprehend. I've done a fair amount of hiking, but nothing major backwoodish, but from my experiences I can sort of see how difficult this is going to be. I am looking forward to reading your website. I'd like to know more about your over all plans as far as budget and itenerary.

    Heck, I am having difficulty just trying to get my plans together for a year long journy around the U.S. in a vehicle and here you are planning to cross it hiking barefoot. I plan to hike many trails at the places I visit, but I just can't imagine it being my only source of travel.

    I wish you a great journy and hope you find what your looking for. I know exactly how you feel about todays society because they are the same reasons why I am planning my trip.

    Don't know if you heard of Steven Newman, but he walked over 10,000 miles around the entire world. Might be a good idea to check out his book to gain some helpful insight to what it's really like hiking for that long.

    Cool shit man. I'm also in awe, like mhr, but I'm also planning on a trip like this next summer. I don't have a destination, I think I might just wander around, head west. But yeah man, I totally support the idea :)

    Another guy who did a lot of walking was Peter Jenkins. Wrote many books, "Walk Across America" "The Walk West" are of the trip across the US, in two parts. There are others but I haven't read them.
