400 miles of highway 50, the Loneliest Road in America so no apologies that it mostly looks like road. Vegas, a silly place. No pics of us - what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas. Its getting very cold, were knackered, will we make it?

Burning Man

The biggest, loudest, silliest, dustiest party on the face of the planet. Huge thanks to all at the Image Node Camp for all their hard work and for making us feel so welcome. A fantastic week.

570 miles, the biggest state so far and the emptiest. Nearly everyone has been telling us what a nightmare it is to drive across, let alone walk. We are loving it.

Leaving DC and Caching Water in Utah

A whirlwind return to DC for Stuart and I followed by a rear-end-numbing 4000 mile round-trip with our good friend Jon Rudolf to cache the water we will need for our walk through Utah. Our first glimpse of the scenery that awaits us in the West.

Cambridge, preparation on the flat

Last year we chose to walk at altitude in Switzerland in preparation for our first leg - and then ended up walking for five months on the flat. This year, because we will soon be in the Rockies, I decided to prepare by walking across a bit of Cambridge with my old mate Jim (AKA Colonel) - top altitude 73m. A lovely day.

Switzerland 2006

A brief retrospective for Walkingthestates. These are photographs of the walking that Stuart and I did as part of our strict training regime prior to beginning the walk last year. OK, we just wanted to go to the mountains. We were joined by Spenser and John for a great week in the Alps.

Back in the UK - Worcestershire

I soon realised that I was not going to get a lot of work done at Jims as there is far too much to distract me in Brighton. As of January I am living back at my parents house in Redditch where, hopefully, the more subdued environment will be more condusive to the writing that I need to get done over the next few months

Back in the UK - Brighton

Returning to Brighton, staying on the floor at my good friend Jims house and lots of catching up to do.

Leaving the US, Christmas and New Year

Dave and I quit the US on a big jet plane, Christmas at home in Canterbury and away in Hamburg. Hectic Christmassness and an excuse for a rogues gallery of Walking the States European supporters...(nb. check the red eye, you can see why Dave takes the pictures)

New York City

New York, New York. Its no Maysville but its alright. There seem to be a lot of people here.

We took part in the biggest bocce ball tournament in the world and saw the first screening of a documentary made at last years tournament by our good friend Stephanie Foerster.

Micks Stag. Kent, April 2006

Micks Wedding in May is the reason for the delayed start to our walk. Dave is one of two best men. Here you can get a taste of the a cultured stag party in full effect. Unlike most stag parties we didnt just get drunk and do silly things. Didnt you? Er, yes we did. Yes.

Walking in Denmark February 2006

Extreme walking conditions in a park. Well, it snowed a bit and we wandered about looking for deer. It was very cold.
