MADDIE THE COONHOUND


A "super serious project about dogs and physics", Maddie the Coonhound is a side project of This Wild Idea brought to you by photographer and traveler Theron Humphrey. The goal behind This Wild Idea is very simple: to meet one new person a day, everyday, for 365 days as Humphrey's traverses across America, telling the stories of the people he meets along the way. Currently he is on day 214.  

The cool thing about this project is that you can actually track Humphrey's route as he travels from town to town and in fact change his route along the way. Allowing followers to interact, the project is a new look at social media, not just about self-promotion: "it's about everyone in America having an opportunity to connect to the project and shape its direction". 

It would seem that he has an awesome pal with him along for the ride.
