A Journal Sentinel columnist was talking on the local radio show this morning about a 20-something recent college graduate who has decided to drive around the country for about a year staying in people’s homes, visiting local sights and learning about our land and nation through the things he sees and the people he meets along the way.
He’s got sort of a flashy web site, but his writing is quite good, and I’m looking forward to following him on his travels. He somehow managed to market the idea of thousands of people checking his web site every day for updates in order to get himself a free Jeep to use while he is on the road. He is also mainly relying on the kindness of strangers for lodging and support along the way.
He started out in Michigan, headed to Milwaukee, which he has already blogged about. Check out the hometown invasion tour site if you are interested.
