NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – One man is taking the really long way across America.

Matt Green is trying to accomplish a giant feat by walking all the way across the United States, pushing his belongings and supplies in a cart as he trudges along.

He started his trek on March 28, 2010, in New York City and has made it his goal to arrive in Oregon in about six months.

Along the way, Green is staying with any friendly folks willing to let a stranger on a mission crash on their couch.

Recently, one family was kind enough to even make him pancakes for dinner while he weathered a rain storm.

Though Green is often asked why he’s walking on foot across the country instead of hitching a ride, his answer is so simple people can’t believe it.

He says, “I’m just doing it for the hell of it.”

Green is mainly just enjoying his long walk and sharing each step on ImJustWalkin.com.
