Mini Muir
Ted Alvarez, over at the Backpacker Blog, tells the story of 13 year old Nicholas Clark's journey across the country, in his usual humorous tone.
He made his way east by following rivers, and even made his way above treeline. A boy after our own hearts, he traveled fast and light, packing just a sleeping bag, tarp, matches, two packs of cookies, trail mix, tortillas, honey, and four bottles of water. He "didn't want the weight" of toothpaste or soap.

It is good, you should read it all.
