Contributions under the name Movethathoof are the effort of Daniel, carrier human of and happy Lump (Lesser Rump, in comparison) to Mooníca, his bovine stuffed animal travelling companion. Their hitchhiking and other travel exploits can be followed at her Instagram account of the same name. They hitchhiked together from Ajo in the US state of Arizona to Ushuaia in Tierra del Fuego, Argentina from late 2017 to late 2018, from where they rebounded north to Buenos Aires, their current home.

Before this most recent journey Daniel had hitchhiked extensively with a motley collection of others. He has amassed nearly 1000 rides over more than 150,000 km hitched since he first stuck his thumb out for a ride over a decade ago at 17 years old (actually he first stuck his thumb out for a ride when he was 9 years old, but that's another story). His hitchhiking has taken him to every Canadian, US, and Mexican state or province as well as nearly every other American country along with Japan and China. Some reflections on his travels, the world around us, and other aspects of his life can be found in Road and Corner Quarterly, his zine available at fine community bookshops across the continent on a less than quarterly basis.
