EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) -
You can join an Evansville man's journey across America by
Mark Stutsman says he started his journey on Saturday in San Francisco, and he has three reasons why. To help himself, to help others, and to bring light to child sexual abuse.
From San Francisco, Mark says he will continue
east to Yosemite National Park, where he will spend a week or two seeing all
that he can. He'll then travel north to Sacramento and travel US 50 east to
reach his destination, Ocean City, MD., six to nine months later.
Mark says he will walk an
average of 20 miles a day carrying his 45 pound pack with all of his essentials of
living. He will mostly sleep from his small one man tent in parks and off the side of the road. He says he'll eat meals that require no cooking, high in carbs and protein.
Mark says he
had always wanted to walk America. So, what sparked this?
"I first read a book of four short
stories by Stephen King under his pseudonym, Richard Bachman, when I was in 6th
grade. One of the short stories was, A Long Walk, Stephen King's first novel,
about an annual walking contest in a totalitarian America where young men walk
competing against each other for their lives," Mark says.
The book struck a chord with
Mark, and while he didn't necessarily want to walk to his death, he definitely
wanted to push himself to the brink. He decided that now was the time to do the unthinkable.
The 36-year-old father of four says he's been facing a
profound tragedy from 30 years before. Mark says he was sexually abused as a young 6-7 year old boy, and just in the recent months has
that occurrence come back to haunt him.
He says facing all the emotions that he didn't as a kid was a major driving force in
wanting to escape and face his demons out on the road.
Mark says he has a website, Facebook, and Twitter account setup for people who want to
follow him on his journey.
"At first, I had planned on just leaving. No updates,
websites or anything like that. Then the more planning I did, I knew I could
possibly do some good. So I have partnered with Darkness to Light, a nonprofit
dedicated to shedding light on and preventing child sexual abuse. I have a
donate tab on my website and Facebook for those that would like to donate to
the cause," Mark says.
He will also be posting
updates, pictures and stories of his adventure on the sites.
Marks says he's also walking for those who need encouragement. He asks
that if you have a person who could use the encouragement and would like Mark
to walk a day in their support or memory, to use his website or Facebook to
