Steve Wescott is walking across America with a goat.

The journey started in Seattle and ends in New York City, hence the name of his blog Needle 2 Square (Seattle Space Needle to Times Square). When deciding to set out on a mission to raise awareness and funds for Uzima Outreach, Wescott figured he needed a travel companion. So when his dog wasn’t physically up for the challenge he decided to bring a goat that he named Leeroy Brown.

Wescott and Leeroy Brown left in 2012 and, after some delays, are still on the road to NYC.
