“They call him “Elusive,” at least on the hiking trails....

"They call him "Elusive," at least on the hiking trails. And that's pretty much where Dave Roberts spends most of his time these days, crisscrossing the country by foot, by bike, even by kayak. Dave is on a mission to navigate the U.S. powered only by his 2 legs and 2 arms. He lugs 25 pounds of equipment on his back and spends his nights outdoors. Did we mention that Dave, a retired teacher and software engineer, is 72 years old? "I expect to keep doing it until I get tired of it," he said. The photographer @misterwidmer accompanied Dave for about 15 miles in Louisiana one day in November. "I was tired," @misterwidmer recalled. "He was twice my age and hiked almost another 15.""
