No, I'm not being harsh. Showing any support for this character would be a waste of time. There is no way that he is going to raise enough funding to finance a trip like this. 30,000 miles is a very long way to go on a mower...3000 miles, too, for this guy would even be a pipe dream...Being realistic, 300 miles is even out of the question. On top of gas for the mower...he'd have to have a chase crew, pay for food, pay for accomodations, and such. This would probably cost somewhere around, I don't know, $200,000 consevatively. I bet that he doesn't even have $200 in the bank. Seriously, this guy needs to hop the next train to reality.
