I like this, being able to track your progress!
Hey anthony! My girlfriend and I saw you last night at Pops gas and grocery store. Spotted you taking a snack break, we were curious.. What’s this trip for? Where are you headed and where did you begin?
Hey! I started in Charleston, SC and I’m walking to San Diego, CA. Just for adventure really. To be able to say that I walked from one ocean to the other. :)
i think what you are doing is awesome! so many people envy your determination and its something you will be proud to say you did one day!! good luck and be carefull Jeanne
OH, Check this out Anthony, allows real time tracking and an embeded map for the site!
Thank you! I will for sure check that out the next time I have access to a PC.
Just saw you in Summerville, SC Target.
So your walkin down 78 all the way to Augusta?
I think so but someone just told me that may not be the smartest thing due to snakes and hogs and hunting clubs. What do you think? I’m in the Summerville panera now charging my stuff and trying to figure out where I’m going to sleep.
Ya if ur campin out I dnt think it would be too smart but I’m not sure of any other way.
My wife Dru and I saw you in the 5 Guys Burger and Fries in Aiken, South Carolina. We were curious about your adventure and looked you up on the web when we got home. It sounds like you are going to have quite an adventure. We wish you the best and will keep you in our prayers. Stay safe on your trip. We will follow your progress across the country.
Tim and Dru
Thank you guys so much! It has been wonderful so far :)
Saw you in the Aiken Five Guys as well. Stopped and talked for a couple of minutes. Enjoy the trip, drive on!
you came into where i work today. i work at the Five Guys in Aiken and we all were wondering what your backpack was for and then we thought it was so cool once we saw that it said “Anthony Walks America.com”
Well thank you. Was my first time at 5 guys and loved it! :) way better than my original decision of mcdonalds :) glad you think it’s cool. For that, I think you’re cool.
My wife and I saw you Saturday a week ago about 5 miles east of Branchville, then I saw your picture in the Times and Democrat newspaper this past week with our Bamberg Mayor Alton McCollum giving you a key to the city..I started keeping up with your journey on your website..enjoying it very much…Have a safe trip and our prayers are with you…
Thanks a ton! :)
Just left Smith’s Chevron on Walton Way Extension in Augusta Georgia
Daryl and I will be in Alabama from the 9th through the 11th at least until after lunch on the 11th. Southeast Alabama…we will keep looking for where you are and if we are any where near we will try to contact you. We will probably take 55 to Jackson, MS (Highway 20 where you are generally at now connects there) and I am not sure which highway into Alabama. Anyway we will keep watching and see how close we may be.
Sounds as if things are going well for you and we think of you daily.
the lady from McDonalds yesterday saw you today walking to Madison in the scorching heat. Yes that was me blowing the horn. I think what you are doing is so unique. Take care and may God keep you safe and sound.
I talked to you at the Yesterday Cafe here in Rutledge, GA today! It’s awesome what you’re doing, stay safe out there and keep us posted! A bunch of us here at work are going to keep track of what’s going on

I saw you in Big Spring on the service road and said hi when I was getting my Mail. Dang wish I had know this was you.
I heard about your walk across America, from your Mom, whom called into NPR Radio. She’s proud of you. I think it’s great that you’re learning about people, and can take these lessons and memories with you, through life.
Good luck in your quest.
Anthony, I just heard about your adventure on NPR (I didn’t catch the name/relation of the woman who mentioned the website.) My first reaction: “outstanding!”
I’m an old guy – 60 – and a few years ago fulfilled a dream from my teens or 20s – to ride a motorcycle from the Arctic to Tierra del Fuego. Since then, I’ve crossed the U.S. a number of times, moving more and more slowly each time. But it was still too fast. The solution, I thought: to walk. So maybe you’ll inspire me to follow.
You’ll spend a lifetime absorbing and digesting the lessons of this journey. Best wishes.
t was his mother.
hey if you still have questions about west Texas to California give me a call.. My name is Adam and I am a truck driver. 760-460-1093. easier to call then e-mail..
Hey Anthony I just saw you at a love gas station. I think what your doing is amazing and ill keep you in my thoughts and prayers!!!
Merry Christmas and stay safe.
My looks like about two more states and your walk will be over,fantastic. My heart doctor ok my walk as long as I follow what he said.
Hope you have a happy new year.
I posted a comment yesterday but i was unsure if it actually posted so I’m sorry if you get this twice.
I’m a Senior at Seckman High and I’m on the newspaper staff this year. My teacher heard about what you are doing and I was wondering if it would be okay to do an article about you and your journey across America!?!?
Well I guess that’s all for now and I hope everything is going well, so keep up the great work!!
Awesome!! Wish my husband, my son and I couldve met you. We live in somerton,az by my husband is originally from belleville, il and he would’ve kived to talk with another st. louis cardinals fan since there arent many around here. Hope you have a safe trip!
Just heard about you on the radio,i checked out your website ! Wow you are an inspiration ! Gooood luck !!!!
Congrats man you are almost there!!! This really inspires me to know I can do anything that I put my mind to!! Great job you made us all proud!!(:
Way to go on your trip man! You posted your pics on Reddit, and had to check out your website. That’s such an inspiration! Keep on truckin man!
Are you still in So Cal? Looks like I’m about 10 minutes away from you in Rancho Penasquitos.
Nope I’m back home in St. Louis :/
Hi. I just found you through Reddit. I’m an absolute nature/adventure freak and love to camp/hike/meet people and have already been to 42 states (not via hiking). I’m wondering, how do you go about planning for a trip like the one you made from ocean to ocean (all on foot)? I’d love to chat some time and you are truly inspiring for the adventure seekers in us all! :)
