Neatorama reader Rich B, who is driving across the US on a Great American Roadtrip (I'm so jealous), ran across Bud and Patricia Kenny and their mule Della in Kent, Connecticut.
Turns out, the Kennys are on a tour themselves - except they're WALKING the entire way!
On June 22, 2001 Bud and Patricia Kenny with their mule Della left Hot Springs, Arkansas to tour the world on foot. They figure it will take them 15 to 20 years to complete this journey. Bud and Patricia were both 53 when they embarked on this adventure. Della was seven..
Link - Thanks Rich B.!
PS. I find it so neat that Rich has been sending me regular updates on his roadtrip that I've put all of these posts under its own category: Great American Roadtrip
