Sponsors! Saucy Entertainment and Gym Flow 100

A huge "THANK YOU!" to Saucy Entertainment and Gym Flow 100 for signing on as my first sponsor for the walk to DC!  

I honored that the folks at Saucy Entertainment and Gym Flow 100 have chosen to sponsor me on this journey.  With the support of the fine folks at the aforementioned establishments I will be able to purchase crazy awesome boots that will prevent my knees from blowing out halfway to North Stonington, CT.

Donating my hair to Children With Hairloss...

KC Hoye donated her hair today!
Donate Your Hair!

I'm walking from Boston to Washington DC, this entire process has been about shedding. Preconceptions, possessions, and now my hair. 

I recently moved out of my apartment, gave away or threw out most of my possessions, and am couch surfing until I roll out on this fantastic journey.

During your long reign as Mayor...


Dear Mayor Menino,
In an article in the Boston Herald dated July 20, 2012, you are quoted as saying, “You can’t have a business in the city of Boston that discriminates against a population.  We’re an open city, we’re a city that’s in the forefront of inclusion”.

We agree that any kind of discrimination should  be unwelcome in the City of Boston We, the undersigned, would like to commend you for the strong statements that you made regarding “Chick-Fil-A” because you felt that its practices were discriminatory.  Although we applaud the ideals you espouse, the facts don’t comply with the rhetoric.  If you feel so strongly that discrimination is wrong, you should look to all of the discriminatory practices that you have allowed to exist in the City during your reign.

RAMPS Activists Arrested During Protest of Mountain Top Removal Mining Project

From RAMPS (the organizers):
"More than 50 protesters affiliated with the R.A.M.P.S. Campaign have walked onto Patriot Coal’s Hobet mine and shut it down.  Ten people locked to a rock truck, boarded it and dropped banners: ”Coal Leaves, Cancer Stays.”  At least three have been arrested, with another in a tree being threatened by miners with a chain saw.  Earlier in the day, two people were arrested at Kanawha State Forest before a group of protesters headed to the state capitol.
