Day 0 - New York on the 30th of July

Day 0 - New York on the 30th of July

We got into New York at 1 o'clock today, a half hour ahead of schedule. We quickly learned that New York was an expensive city, but luckily today was not one where we were concerned about budget. We both got a sneak peak at some ladies bare behinds due to the midday wind. R.E.I. was stop number one; we picked up some fuel for the stoves and a couple much needed undergarments. As we stopped at the outdoor stoop to put our purchases in our packs, Levi got chewed out for not giving a man 50 cent(s-that was interesting (The man in need called me insincere and threatened to piss in my mouth). We traveled along towards our destination for the night, a three mile walk. We stopped along the way for some pizza, because we realized that the only sustinence we had was a candy bar each. Next we ran into our first "fan" at Staples who was so taken aback by our plans that he requested to take a photo with us. We left Staples with a great "OUR WALK ACROSS AMERICA .COM" sign for the back of Shikira's pack.

Continuing our spending spree, we picked up some smoothies at a street fair and headed for "home." Thanks to Chris T and Megan F for hosting us for the evening! They took us to a tasty Ramen place right below their apartment, and after we walked to a grocery store to pick up a few food items for the next couple days. Chris took us on a nice walk through midtown. We saw Central Park, Rockafellar Plaza, Times Square, and stopped for a drink at Bryant Park. Excited for Day 1, we plan on getting an early start. Talk to you guys soon.

Thanks for all the support,

Levi and Shikira
