"HERO OF A THOUSAND FACES" ---A CLASSIC BOOK BY JOSEPH CAMPBELL---says that every culture in the world has in its folklore one story in common---the story of a hero's journey. With these components: a restless person---leaves his people ---wanders into the unknown----encounters difficulties----overcomes them----learns something useful----returns to his people---shares what he has learned.
He aims to take the long backroads route to Florida---then north to Maine and across the top of the United States to Portland. He has about a hundred pounds of gear in that 3 wheeled baby carriage---clothing, food, water, bedding, shelter, books, computer, etc
---walks about 28 miles a day----said he didn't like his job---fantasized doing this----then---did it! That's a hero by Cambell's definition. He has a facebook account and is willing to answer your questions about his adventure.
RANDY PHILOSOPHIZES: My friend CB asked challenging questions: Is he really a hero? Granted he is living lean--- is courageous---adaptive---harmless. But how is he serving others? Is he productive? Is he living sustainably? I say he is an INSPIRATION. That may be be the highest service.
