Walking Across America 1

Part I of Andrew Forsthoefel’s walk across America.


–He just walkin’ across the country. He said he’s going to… Where you gonna wind up at?
–New Orleans, and then California.
–I don’t know why he’s doing it. He’s just crazy, I think.

–I found myself walking across America kind of by accident. I took a job right out of college, but three months into it I got fired. I didn’t have much money, didn’t have a plan, so I figured I’d start walking.
I’d walk out my back door near Philadelphia, and then down to New Orleans, and if I was up for it, all the way to San Francisco. It would be 4,000 miles, and I wouldn’t take rides.

Due to COVID-related issues, access to American Voices is currently free for teachers and students! I do ask that you register, though, and send feedback – your thoughts will help me decide how to move forward with this project.
