Mark Baumerica Is Insane (In a Good Way)
Did you know that Mark Baumer is crossing America barefoot?
Check it out at his Medium website, Not Going to Make It.
He’s one week in. Before he left he wrote, “Six years ago, I made a similar journey across America on foot, but for that journey I used shoes.” I remember that. I enjoyed reading his posts back then.

He’s posting a lot of videos as he goes. What a weirdo:
