Mark Baumer.

Not sure how I started following Mark Baumer’s journey to walk barefoot across American to support awareness of climate change and water shortages, maybe through some Facebook link, but I happened to start following his journey from the beginning.  He started in October and fast forward to September I’m in my car with my oldest son going home from a soccer game, when I see this guy in a poncho, bright green shorts walking barefoot. I knew instantly it was him just from watching his videos which he posted which were awesome and entertaining.  I had to pull over and introduce myself.  We chatted just for a few seconds and off we went on our own ways. He certainly had a unique personality and I was inspired with his outlook on life.

When I heard he had been killed it really shocked and saddened me. I only met him for a few seconds but it seemed I actually knew him more than that.  Just a tragic accident and my thoughts and prayers go out to his family.  RIP Mark, what you were doing was amazing and I enjoyed following your journey.

My new drinking buddy, a man of few words. Picking pumpkins. So nasty. Early morning squat day. Trying to destroy my chicken legs Barnes and Noble vinyl section is growing since the last time I was there. Some good selections.
#vinylrules My son Andrew’s first middle school cross county meet.  Looking relaxed and having fun. At my sons baseball game. Get it in when you can.
#strictpullupsforlife I saw this tour at the New Haven Coliseum in New Haven, CT back in 1989.  The line-up was a bit different, Big Daddy Kane was there instead of Too Short, and NWA never showed up which was a bummer!  Killer show.
#90shiphopjunkie Been following Jeremy pursuing his dreams of bodybuilding and it’s nothing short of amazing and inspiring. Turkey legs for days.
