Picture of the Day - Jack Kerouac's Stuff

After I'd been traveling a while I had more and more people tell me I reminded them of Jack Kerouac and that I should read "On the Road", and I eventually did read it. While passing through New York City the public library had a pretty big exhibit about him, including 40 feet worth of the original scroll from "On the Road". This case shows some of the stuff he carried around.
