Slackline Around the World Week 11: Oh Snap! No Peas for Me in NYC

Follow all of Mean Joe Green’s Slackline Tour on Wend Magazine’s blog.

I’m hungry and tired and arrived in NYC (the end of my US tour!) without any type of fan fair. Yet my spirits lifted when my slackline passed a beautiful fire escape garden. Throughout, this cross country slacktour I ate a generous amount of burritos, consumed more beer than a cartoon man on a slackline should, and ingested countless bugs, a few bats, and a hawk (it was either him or me), but when I passed this garden and saw the juicy snap peas taunting me from within their iron sanctuary, it took all of my restraint not to snap into a snap pea.

After following Mike Lieberman’s (CanarsieBK) exploits as an NYC fire escape gardener I couldn’t get myself to take what was not mine and moreover, what was so beautifully and dutifully tended to and loved.

Hungry, tired, and without inner peas, I am done crossing our great country by slackline.
(Talk about not leaving a footprint.)

I’m heading across the Atlantic towards Portugal in a few days. I’ll include my updated Mean Joe Green SlackTracker next week sometime.
