State: Florida I woke up early and felt pretty good because I slept moderately well. I packed up my stuff and headed across the street to the Three Sisters Springs tourism center. I bought a ticket for the trolley ($15) and then got on it. The trolley and access to the Three Sisters Springs is run by the city. There is no public parking at the springs, although you can just walk in for $12.50. But for $2.50 more, I took the trolley because I knew it had two more stops further north. While we drove the driver informed us “They haven’t seen any manatees forRead More →

Mount Katahdin

State: Maine Date: 05/05/16 We woke up when the sunlight hit us in the car. I didn’t sleep well (during the night it got down to 34 degrees and the weather app said it felt like 25). I agree with the weather app despite being in a car with three layers on. Harley was smart and grabbed his sleeping bag and slept great. Sunrise was at 5:15am, which was a lot earlier than either of us were used to. Yet we got up and walked into the Camden state park from the parking lot we slept in. We headed up the road and found a trailRead More →

State: Florida I didn’t sleep well in the Devil’s Den Campground because I’m not used to having people around me when I camp anymore. I got up to break camp and then Tami came by and brought me breakfast. I thanked her and told her I’d probably stop up and see her. She then had to run to get to work at the Cedar Lakes Woods and Gardens. I didn’t really have a plan for what to do other than to wait around until 4:30pm because Carlie (works at Devil’s Den) had offered me a ride to Gainesville. After I got my shower, I hadRead More →

The Dog Chapel in Saint Johnsbury Vermont

State: Vermont Date: 07/29/16 There are certain places everyone should go. The Dog Chapel in St. Johnsbury Vermont is one of them. In each state I visit, I have a list of top places that I want to see. The Dog Chapel was #1 on my list for good reason. It is a place to honor and remember our best friends who are no longer with us. Before I began this trip I lost my best friend in the world. Buddy, a half pitbull half chow mutt who was my best friend in the world for 13 years. Buddy’s Story Back when I was inRead More →

State: New Hampshire Date: 06/15/16 As I walked down the dusty dirt road where a massive amount of construction was going on, I wasn’t sure if I was going to make it to America’s Stonehenge before it closed. My legs, knees, and back are constantly yelling at me to take it easy. After nearly 6 months on the road, you’d think I would learn to take my time to get to where I’m going. However, I think the excitement of seeing one of the places the state is famous for does play a role in me doing more miles than I should. When I wasRead More →

River Gallery School of Art

State: Vermont Date: 09/02/16 When I arrived in Brattleboro, I had one thing on my mind: finding somewhere to volunteer. However, as is usually the case, the place found me. While walking down Maine Street, a lady saw my sign: I learned her name was Jennifer and she suggested I volunteer at the River Gallery School of Art. I decided to take her advice and headed over there. When I arrived I was greeted warmly by Donna and Joslin who were eager to learn about my trip. I told them what I was doing and how I volunteer in each state to make the worldRead More →

State: Florida When I arrived in Saint Augustine I had some business to attend too. The first stop on my list was Wells Fargo. As most of you know, I started a new account with them because they have the most locations in the US. Which makes it easier for me on the road. I had to adjust my savings plan, because with the bigger banks they look for a way to charge you a monthly fee for having an account with them, but they also give you options to avoid it. It was the option I needed to switch. Currently, it was set toRead More →

Seth Stivala and Patricia Share

State: Florida So once more, everyday’s an adventure. I truly believe that anyone who needs their faith in humanity restored, should travel. Well, today I went to the No Name Pub at the suggestion of a local and a fan (Patricia Stanley Share). Patricia met me there for lunch. We actually met on the plane ride down to Key West. She was sitting in front of me and we didn’t talk that much, but she caught bits and pieces of the conversation I was having with my seatmates and chimed in when I was talking about how I was looking forward to the Dry Tortugas andRead More →

Morgan Beach in Maine

State: Maine Date: 05/12/16 I woke up in the woods around Lincoln Maine to the sound of chickadees calling. As the sun began its ascent, I knew it was going to be a beautiful day. I took my time getting up and did the usual routine: prayer for the day, a chapter in my bible, brushing my teeth, a small breakfast (handful of nuts), putting my sleeping bag into my compression sac, folding up my hammock and putting it in its bag, and finally, putting everything into my 65L Osprey Atmos AG Backpack. As I headed up the hill to get on 155 south, IRead More →

State: Maine Date: 06/7/16 Our story begins late yesterday evening. While walking through Ogunquit, I passed an antique store. In the window, a hat caught my eye and I had this thought: Being late in the day the store was closed. However, I checked the hours and then camped in the nearest woods I found. The next day I waited outside the store, while staring at the hat that taunted me through the window. “I would look good on you. People will compliment you if you wear me,” it said to me. As I stared, the shop keep startled me “Beautiful Day, eh?” “Gorgeous,” IRead More →
