giving any money to 'The Man'. He's travelling
coast to coast and he's not staying in any chain
hotels eating in any chain restaurants or filling
up at any chain gas stations. No on this journey
only independent Mom and Pop businesses will do.
Of course travelling unchained in a chained world
is tricky. When you're tired you can't just stop
at a Starbucks and when the tank is running empty
you can't just stop at the next gas station. So
staying true to the task was always going to be a
struggle. But the people facing the real struggle
are the people working to keep these businesses
alive.
