2 coasts ... 1 HOPE

On January 6th 2009, I will be flying out to LA and walking back to Boston, raising money for cancer research. The route I'm taking should take 5 months and cover roughly 3,800 miles. We will be filming the entire trip for an upcoming documentary.

Don't Temp-me

I woke up and talked with John a bit more this morning. We took a few pictures that I'll add here when he's able to send them to me. He brought me out to the main drag, we said our good-byes and I was off. I knew I had 26 or so miles to cover to get to the next surf, in Tempe.

I got to Phoenix and got my second flat of the trip

Yes, that's my Nalgene bottle holding up the Switchback Hybrid.

As I walked through Phoenix I saw these metal sculptures shaped like insects. If you look close there are little people in the claws, on the tail and all around it.

Also my house that is still under construction

This is actually ,Tovrea Castle being renovated. So you don't have to start packing Kelly. HAHA

I was getting really tired and didn't think Tempe was ever gonna show it's face. Then I rounded a bend and I was on Curry Street (that's the street I was aiming for). I walked for about 30 more minutes and reached my destination. This is Rob's business, so I was greeted by his co-worker Janet and shown around. Rob was out working and would be in shortly.

We may be attending a dinner at some friends here in a bit depending on how tired I'm feeling when Rob gets in. We'll have to see. The place is nice and Rob has made me feel right at home. I'll let you know how the night turns out....Stay tuned.

Day 21 total: 26.5
