Journal Entry: Weight = 175; Coinage = $1.29, 19 pennies, 2 nickels, 5 dimes, 2 quarters (2 bagger); Glass Bottles = 14; Ground Scores = 9; Best Coinage find = a nickel found under a pay telephone pay. To find the coin, I pulled several tall weeds from a common area that the city fails to maintain. Out popped the nickel with one of the weeds.

Feature Entry: The MoneyWalker is working with a PhD student on her dissertation that deals with "existential vacuums." I am certain that existentialism will have several entries in the weeks to come. Existentialists set their own norms but are willing to live with the consequences. So if the MoneyWalker wants to bizarrely spend his time walking and looking for stray coins, and occasionally stopping to pull weeds, then people will just have to stare. And so what if he is carrying four empty beer bottles with a recently retrieved clothing article wrapped around his waist, what is the big deal?
