How We'll Run It

The Goal:

Matt and Brandon plan to run across the United States of America in the summer of 2005. 

The Plan:

We're starting in on the Atlantic coast in New Jersey on May 23rd, and hope to end on the Pacific coast of Oregon on August 28th.  That's about 97 days of walking.  We plan on spending roughly 10-11 hours per day on the road, starting early so we can rest during the noonday heat.  We will be staying at some predetermined places along the way, but most nights we plan on camping on the side of the road or in people's yards.
