What You Don’t Know
For anyone who might not know, I will soon be documenting the journey of Steve Wescott. Steve has been walking across America with a goat for the last 4 years in order to raise funds for the Uzima Outreach in Nairobi, Kenya. I had the opportunity to interview Steve last November. He’s been documenting his project on his own since he started and has given me full access to use whatever materials I need. He’s currently in Columbus, Ohio getting ready to begin his walk again. He anticipates he’ll be finally reaching his goal to get to Time Square this summer.
The Countdown Begins
The countdown had officially begun, it’s just one week before I hit the road with my documentary subject, Steve and his goat, Miles. There will be no cheating, I will be backpacking across America right along with him for a month. The preparation for this trip has proven to be challenging. I’m attempting to fit everything I need, including all equipment, into two small bags. We could be walking far as 17 miles in a day! I’m extremely intimidated by all of this. I’m hoping my body with hold up through the month. Steve has explained that food and water can be difficult to get at times and sleeping outside may get uncomfortable. To stand a chance of make a good documentary, I need to get as much footage as possible, so I will be roughing it for this project. I will be doing my best to keep all my social media updated throughout the month. You can follow me on Facebook, Instagram, and Snapchat. Find out more about Steve at Needle2Square.com
