  6. Just wanted to say I did a similar trip except on my bike a few years back when I was 22. I went from Yorktown, VA to Vegas. Watching your videos reminded me about how great and kind the vast majority of people are. One of my fondest memories was asking someone for some bread to put my peanut butter on but I was instead rewarded with a huge pot roast dinner. Perfect. It truely is the journey that matters. Thanks for posting these videos. You made my day.

  7. Matt! You made it!!! So happy too see you’ve made it full circle and that you’re safely back home. I’m so happy to have been part of your trip- I’ll let you know if I’m ever in NYC so we can meet up! - Rebecca from Columbia -

  8. Of course you had a wonderful trip. The vast majority of people, if given the chance, will almost inevitably become extraordinarily generous. I am never surprised at the generousity of complete strangers.

    I’m stoked I was a part of your project. Our “trip” thru the desert made me realize how much I miss it there and I am moving back to AZ to continue my “ride” thru life. Much Love to Ya! xoxo

  10. Good Job Matt. It is really beautiful to see this awesome generosity from strangers in more and more places.

    I am embarking on my own similar trip in 6 days. I have my own wheels, but no money, and my mission is to bring strangers together by staging random acts of kindness, showing documentaries, and doing community services along the way. Please see more info at I would like to feature you as an inspiration on the ‘people’ page, let me know if you are into that.

    Also thank you for making a video of this trip. As I start out, I have no camera, but I am confident that one will find me along the way.

    I am happy for you, thanks for spreading good energy!
