"Burden is seven years into a decade-long road show dedicated to spreading the word, like a postmodern Johnny Appleseed who plants ideas instead of seeds. In 1996 he set up Walkable Communities Inc., a nonprofit business that offers planning, traffic management, and community design. He travels 350 days a year -- ironically, often by automobile -- and vows to keep moving until 2006. So far he has visited 1,300 communities."
