Well, not really. But, we did stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night. Additionally, the first news article about the great trek has been published, in New York's "Metro" newspaper.

"UNION SQUARE. Remember Matt Green and Don Badaczewski, those two guys who last August broke the record for circumnavigating the city by subway?
Well, Green is back — with a new teammate, college buddy Rob Moncure — for another urban adventure: a five-day, 150-mile walk across the city. That’s 30 miles of pavement, or roughly 10 hours of trekking, a day, starting Monday on Staten Island."
