I’m Matt Forney, I’m 24 years old, and I grew up in Syracuse, New York. I’m presently based in upstate New York.
I started this blog in April of 2012 to chronicle a hitchhiking trip I took from Syracuse to Portland, Oregon, in order to see America, shock myself out of my comfort zone, and change my life. The trip lasted six months and took me more than 3,500 miles across sixteen states and through several of America’s major cities, including Chicago, Minneapolis and Seattle. This site is a journal for my thoughts and ideas.
I’m also the author of Confessions of an Online Hustler and other fine books; click here to learn more.

I also run Excavating Eden, a group blog dedicated to anthropology, psychology and self-improvement for introverts.
