You might remember Maddie the dog, a warm-tempered coonhound who became famous on Instagram for her unusual ability to balance on everything from tree branches to horsebacks. Now she is travelling mostly by motorcycle across America’s backcountry with her owner Theron Humphrey, to capture the imaginations of those who long to hit the road.
“This project is about having fun… We’re going to avoid those interstates and say ‘Hi’ to the small dots on the map.” Humphrey writes.
Humphrey is a photographer who has found out how to live without chains. He has set foot in all 50 American States and adopted his best friend Maddie along the way. In fact, this rescue dog has probably experienced more thrill seeking adventures than you ever have.
If you think about it, a dog is probably the best travel partner you could possibly ask for never arguing with you about where to go next, when to stop for a rest, or yelling incessantly at you for taking the wrong turn. When I buy a motorcycle I want a furry companion sitting in the sidecar.
