David St Lawrence at the Ripples blog describes Jesse WhiteCrow, a 42-year-old who is walking solo across America on a journey to discover himself.
Jesse is a well-organized traveler with top-of-the-line hiking gear and a base camp back in Sheffield, Mass. He even has a gear list on his website. Every detail of his equipment was unique. I was fascinated by his hand-inscribed titanium drinking cup.
He is an artist and a blogger and writes a compelling story of his trek. According to his business card (I said he was well-equipped) he has a book in progress.
