Travel Tuesday: We Make the Road by Walking
We humans often feel pressed to take the quickest way home, or the shortest trip to our destination and in doing so, end up missing all of the communities in between. But what if the trip wasn’t all about getting from Point A to Point B in the fastest way possible? Well, today a story of three brothers caught our attention. One, because we’re big fans of using our own power to take us places and two, because we noticed they were rocking Osprey Packs for their journey. Check it out…
California’s high-speed rail line will eventually transport people from Los Angeles to San Francisco in less than three hours, saving travelers the hassle of flying and the six-hour schlep up or down I-5. But does urbanites’ desire to move from point A to B as quickly as possible overshadow the communities in between? A trio of brothers—whose family has owned land for more than 100 years in a rural community through which the trains will pass—are traveling the entire length of the future tracks by foot to find out.
Brothers Travis and Adam Souza and Everett Nate Yockey left Union Station in Los Angeles on August 29, and expect to arrive in San Francisco on September 30. They’re calling the project “We Make the Road by Walking” and documenting each step of the journey with videos on their website.
