As he prepares to set out on his walk across America, Mike Posner admits he's "terrified" -- but also extremely excited.
"The allure of it is its difficulty, its magnitude -- and the inevitability of self-growth through the project," Posner tells Billboard. "I don't feel like I'm walking to show people who I am. I'm walking to find out who I'll become."
Posner plans to launch the 2,942-mile (give or take) trek at noon ET from Asbury Park, NJ on Monday (April 15). His route will take him straight west to his home town of Detroit, then on a diagonal path to his ultimate destination in Venice Beach, Calif., at some undetermined point in the future. "It's impossible to really know, because so much is weather dependent," notes Posner, who plans to chronicle his adventures via social media. "There is sort of a time constraint; You want to get through those Rocky Mountains before it starts getting cold."
