      • Since April of 2009, I have been “traveling” the country via Google Street View, by photoshopping myself into screen shots and writing a travel narrative. In every day that I travel, I must have enough gas, stop for food, have a place to stay, and only drive as far as would be physically possible in a day. The people and stories that I encounter along the way are from online reviews of restaurants that I eat at or hotels that I stay in, though I never look up further information about a place unless I found it (visually) by wandering on Street View. While the travel is virtual, the feelings of discovery, novelty, and shock that I have encountered on my trip have been as real as any I have ever had.
