I just received an email from Matt Green, who just recently finished a 157 day walk across America.
He has given a few talks on his experience and says he’s been getting great feedback. I think it’s a tremendous thing he’s done, and I would imagine the kind of things you could bring back from a walk of that length would be very much worth hearing. His talk is largely based around his experiences on that trip. A couple of lessons he felt were most vital are:
- The world is a far kinder and less scary place than we’re told, and
- There is so much beauty around us, often right in front of our eyes, that we take for granted.
I’ve got a few talks lined up for 2011, but I’d love to add more, so if you know of a group that might be interested in having me do a presentation (anywhere between 20 and 90 minutes), please let me know.
Sounds like something I’d love to hear. Drop Matt a line. His site is: http://imjustwalkin.com/
