The Matriarch

Nick Newcomen had an idea, a car equipped with a Qstarz BT-Q1000X GPS tracker, and a lot of time on his hands so he decided to advertise the writings of his favorite philosopher with the world’s biggest sign.

Newcomen created his message by plotting his course and while driving  making sure to turn the tracker on while tracing the letters and off in between.

Newcomen drove across thirty states in thirty days for a total of 12,328 miles.  The message can be read using Google Earth.
