The Slice

Slice answer (being asked for advice)

“I most like it when people ask me for hints about walking or bicycling across the U.S., coast-to-coast,” wrote Glen Hanket, who lives in Pullman. “Unfortunately, it does not happen very often.”

Hanket walked across America with his wife shortly after they were married in the 1990s.

“For a theme, we picked up roadside litter along the way, bagging 4 tons worth. Newspapers loved our story — especially the part about finding discarded underwear in every state except Kansas.”

A book about that adventure is called, fittingly enough, “Underwear by the Roadside.”

“However, I was asked for 'marital' advice once, by a stranger. She suspected her husband of infidelity, and found women's underwear in his car. He claimed that he had found it by the side of the road. On a Google search, she discovered my story, and contacted me to ask if I thought he was telling the truth.”
