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 →

State: New Hampshire Fan Topic by Brandon Holdren Date: 07/03/16 One of the biggest questions I’ve been getting about my trip is: “What do you eat on the road?” Well, when I started this journey I had this idea in my head that I was only going to eat super healthy and no fast food or soda… That idea quickly went out the window for two reasons: On the road you eat anything and everything you can get your hands on to keep that constant intake of energy coming in to keep yourself moving. To elaborate further, no matter how healthy you eat on theRead More →

State: New Hampshire Date: 07/15/16 I woke up early, but didn’t get out of my hammock. I was pretty tired from hiking Mount Bond yesterday and staying up playing D&D with my new friends Danny and John. We met the other day at the top of Mount Bond and ended up sharing a campsite. Danny and John are both volunteer firefighters and this was their first big hike. I remember seeing their packs and realizing that this was definitely the case because I had made the same mistake over packing at the beginning of my trip. That night after pausing our game till the morning,Read More →

State: New Hampshire Date: June 20th, 2016 There are certain places in the world that people need to see. The Cathedral of the Pines is one of those places. When I found out about it during the course of my research for this trip, it went to the top of my list for New Hampshire. I arrived at the Cathedral of Pines tired after nearly 20 miles of various inclines and hills. The excitement of getting to it pushed me farther than I should have gone, which is why I collapsed in front of the sign and had to rest for half an hour beforeRead More →

State: New Hampshire Date: 06/05/16 Volunteer: www.gotlunchlaconia.org In each state I find a place to volunteer to make the world a better place wherever I go. Some of the time, I look for volunteering opportunities  online (like I did in Maine with volunteering through workaway.info at a homestead), but more often the places find me. This past Sunday (July 3rd, 2016), I went to the Congregational Church of Laconia, United Church of Christ. It was suggested by Kelly and Sean, a couple who gave me a ride into Laconia.  I met some wonderful people there and was given the opportunity to share a recent story of God working in myRead More →
