An Unlikely Athlete On An Uncommon Journey

Matt The Walker is the common man, an unlikely athlete on an uncommon journey. He is determined to make an indelible mark on the great world he has explored on foot and seen with his own eyes.
Matt, to me, is a symbol of the common man doing uncommon things. I find his story of unemployment and his consequent response to walk the United States as a startling but timely reaction to the diminishing faith the public has in the systems developed in the 1900s that have affected our economy and consiousness. The most alarming part of the tale is his unfortunate run in with a deadly fungus of some foreign origin that is rare enough to disbelieve but is fatal enough to interrupt and threaten to end his journey in life. At the core of these efforts is a man who had 7 bucks and adventure in hi back pocket; his attitude in the midst of such strife is as consistent as the the will that kept his feet moving through sandstorms, tornadoes, staggering temperatures mile after mile across the US.
