This is pretty cool. Troy Yokum, an Iraq War vet, is pissed off at the shitty economic straights of returning veterans (who’ve seen old jobs lost, houses in foreclosure, and just generally bad news) so he’s going to walk across country with his faithful little dog, Emmie, a Shiba Inu, to raise awareness (and money).
I’ve long had a fantasy (based on movies like I Am Legend and the first Mad Max) of wandering across a post-Apocalyptic America with my dogs, foraging for food and wielding some kind of hybrid human-canine justice wherever we went…. Which isn’t really much like what this guy’s doing. Anyway, have a nice weekend.
