    says he has seen the worst of the US, people throwing paintballs, beer bottles and diapers at him. He should see what my customers do to me.

    I feel sorry for him.
    But what I don't understand is, unless I heard wrong, he's been on that mower since January 2006? When was the last time he met up with his wife? Cause somehow she is pregnant and living in connecticut. So she must have met up with somewhere on his journey, then took off again to wait for him in CT?? :dizzy:

    did this guy miss his turn or taking scenic route? think that coverage is from local station,wbre, in ne pa. and conn.'s north from here (if saw that right?, saw video but couldn't get what he was saying to come in to understand) and that arrow of route, takes him right by the state, if started in alaska. after seeing, now i only wished seen local news tonight and if was in town got to see where he was,, (and not to torment)

    The route seems odd. Well that and other things.

    Looks to me like he was cold and wanted some warmer temps so he went a bit farther south, but I don't think he did that math of milage since he went 3 times the distance he had to go.

    Second thought is that his right wheel was underinflated till he fixed it in AZ, finally enabling him to turn left.
