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.
