My Walk Across America

My name is Skyler, I'm an AmeriCanadian (dual citizenship) that's planning to walk across the United States! I'm raising funds for my trip which will take roughly 1 year. I'm going to use the money mainly for food and shoes along my journey. 

I live in Ontario which is where I'm starting from. I'm going to begin this trip by hiking a 100km (65mile) section of the Bruce trail, from Hamilton, ON to Niagara Falls. That will take me roughly a week and from there I will be crossing the border to Buffalo, NY. I'll be heading south to Atlanta, GA and to New Orleans, LA. From there I'll be heading west across Texas to Albuquerque, NM. I'll change directions again and begin heading northwest through Colorado, Utah, and Idaho, to Washington, then begin heading south again through Oregon and ending in San Francisco, California. It's a long way and I won't be walking all of it. I intend to hitchhike sections (especially in the Western/desert region). 

Any money donated is greatly appreciated! I intend to be taking lots of pictures and videos throughout the trip they'll be posted on The route I'm taking is also on there.
