Walk Hard

Posted by on Fri, Mar 22, 2013 at 7:32 AM

Edward Champion is going to walk from coast to coast and make an audio documentary of his travels:

On May 15, 2013, I aim to walk 3,000 miles across America over the course of approximately six months, starting in Brooklyn and ending in San Francisco. I plan to talk with many people along the way, asking them about their lives and writing dispatches as I make my way from town to town.

I'll be walking fifteen to twenty miles a day and pitching my tent where I can, going out of my way to visit many overlooked towns. And after I finish this cross-country journey, I will edit these conversations into a far-reaching multipart radio narrative spanning twelve states.

He's posting his route and trial walks on a blog made just for the occasion. But he needs to raise a lot of money for this, so he's started an IndieGoGo campaign for the project. Champion does great work with audio interviews, and I think this project could really be something special. If you have any small amount to give, you should dump it in his fund-hole.

I hope for his sake he wears a bullet proof vest.

Paul, my fellow northern New Englander, does it ever annoy you about this "walk across the country" business that starts in New York.
New York! How about you start in Machias, Maine, there, Edward. Then I'll call you a Champion.

Edward Champion is an asshole. I'm not surprised you like his stuff though.
