**Back any of the tiers in this campaign within the final two days and get your name mentioned in the book! **

My name is Neiko Anglin and I walked from Kansas City, MO to New York City. 

Yes, you read that right! 

In the short span of 3 Months I traveled 1199.1 Miles across America by foot.

Walking Across America was BY FAR the scariest thing I've ever done, but behind that fear was an adventure that would change my life.

Now let me tell you a little about the trip...

How'd the trip start?

The trip started on a spur of the moment idea, which means it wasn't pre-planned or funded by an organization. All I had was my two feet, a 25 pound backpack, and a craving for growth.

Leading into the trip I noticed I was taking what I had in life for granted, so the goal was to put myself in the worst possible environment where I would have to force myself to value what I was already blessed with. 

Then, after two weeks of planning and MANY negative comments (mostly from my mother), I opened the front door and took the first step towards New York City. I could have waited longer and planned all the little details around the trip but I would have kept coming up with excuses about what needed to be "perfect" before I started.

And this is the fear I have for others, the fear that they have these amazing ideas and goals but wait for the perfect moment, then they end up never taking the leap.

Where did you sleep?

I did have a tent and sleeping bag so I was able to stay about anywhere. 

But I was fortunate to be hosted by many caring families and individuals along the way. I would say that 40% of the time was spent outside in my tent.

I bet you met so many interesting people!?

Yes, the people are the ones that changed my life. 

Whether they covered my lunch, provided conversation, or opened their house up to me. I wouldn't have been able to make it to the end without them.

A few of the incredible people I was able to meet.

The people I had met on the trip started to became my family and allowed me to see firsthand how all of us can come together for one goal.

Since I was able to meet such a large number of people, I was able to hear SOOO many fascinating stories. 

Stories from meeting another gentleman walking across the country to a lady traveling from another 2500 Miles to be with the lost love of her life. (Now they're getting married!)

More of the incredible people I met along the way.

Since I'm fortunate enough to say I walked across the country, I want to use this book an outlet to share all of my experiences from this life altering adventure.

We Are All Lost will feature the key lessons, stories, and people I met along the way.  

Publishing a book isn't a small task and it comes with many costs.

In order to produce the most professional book possible, I'll need your help as a backer.

When you pledge to any of the 6 tiers, you'll not only receive an official copy of "We are all lost" but you will also be apart of creating the book.

Each tier purchase will go towards editing, proofreading, and publishing costs. If we do not reach the goal of $500 before March 14th, then the book will need to be postponed until a later date. 

This is why it's critical to get your copy during the pre-order period!

PDF - Each backer will receive a download for the high resolution PDF of the book. After pouring months of work into this using my original journals as a source. I am delighted to share this exclusive presentation with you!

Thank You Card - This elegant hand printed thank you card comes with every copy of the book.

Softcover Book - This printing of We Are All Lost includes a thoughtful and intentional approach to a few of life's toughest challenges. While including stories and lessons from most of the people I had met along the 1199.1 mile journey. I have taken careful measures to ensure all aspects of the production are of the highest quality.

Kickstarter Exclusive Hardcover Book - The deluxe Kickstarter Exclusive Edition comes with a exclusive signed personalized message and autograph. Like the original book, this Exclusive Edition will feature the same stories and lessons derived from the 1199.1 mile journey. This Deluxe presentation of the book will only be available to backers of this campaign. 

Exclusive Insights - Walking halfway across America came with many challenges and life lessons. When you purchase a copy of We Are All Lost you'll find your habits and thought processes challenged. 

Getting 1 sale of this book would make my world, but to be able to encourage more people I would love for more copies to be sold.

Current Goal:

🎉 50 Copies Sold 🎉

57/100 Copies Sold

Risks and challenges

The main challenge of this book is going back through the sheer amount of journaling I had from the trip. It is my priority to give you the best possible book to not only tell you about the trip but how to experience it yourself.
