A gallery of photos (his favorites, he says) taken by a dude named Anthony Lambing during his recent five-month walk across America went viral yesterday via Reddit (it has received more than 1 million views in less than a day). And there among the train tracks and vintage Coca-Cola signs and old cemeteries proudly stands our blurry alma mater, Samford Hall to be specific.
Obviously Auburn is a must on any itinerary planned by the whims of America’s soul (rumor has it there exists a lost Kerouac manuscript titled “On Thach Avenue”). Lambing was on The Plains last September and was actually interviewed by Eagle Eye Television. In the Reddit comment thread, “War Eagles” abound.
We’re happy to report that the only representation that “school” down the road receives in the gallery is a “Roll Tide” in the window of a sketchy gas station in Bellamy… seems about right.
Check out Lambing’s other photos here.

I had dinner with him as he passed through Opelika. He slept in the front yard of a friend of mine. I tried to make sure he didn’t bypass the campus area of the Loveliest Village on his way to Montgomery. I’ll be glad to take the credit.
Kidding aside, he was an interesting dude. Seemed like he was trying to put off growing up for a little while. I can think of far, far worse ways to put it off.
