Man Walks Across the U.S. while Obsessing about Next Summer’s Vacation

man_hiking_02Don Macomber, a plumber from Philadelphia, walked 3,876 miles across the United States to raise money and awareness for blistered foot sufferers. He hiked the entire distance while obsessing about his vacation plans for next summer.

Don kept a journal, chronicling the parts of the trip he could remember, starting with a close call in Indiana while walking absentmindedly in the middle of a busy highway. “I was thinking about renting a cottage next summer on the Jersey shore, and the next thing I know I’m in the passing lane.”

He doesn’t remember a thing about crossing Iowa or Nebraska. “Corn fields come to mind and I recall asking myself, ‘Should buy SPF 15 or 30 sunscreen when I go to the beach?’”

Macomber assumes he met countless people during his long trek. “ I vaguely remember a very nice woman offering me a glass of water in Illinois or Colorado. These acts of kindness, most of which I have no recall, from strangers reaffirm my love of mankind.”

This was to be Don’s only long distance walk, “although I may have hiked the Appalachian trail last month. I seem to remember something about wrestling a black bear in my pup tent.”
