Tobias Wacker has uploaded just one video on YouTube, but it's a dandy. Walking from One Wilshire to the Santa Monica Beach is 16 miles and Tobias took a picture every 10 steps. As you see he isn't afraid to cross Wishire now and then and he has a bit of fun by checking out cool things like tall buildings, the La Brea Tar Pits, and the dancing guy at Westside Rentals.

Definitely something to think about the next time Mike of Franklin Ave. hosts another Wilshire Walk, except maybe a picture every 5 steps? We'd hate to be the ones who have to download and then upload each pic, but we guess that's what interns are for.

Anyways, thanks Tobias. How about Vermont Ave., next time, from Griffith Park to Mexico?
