Troopertrek: Stormtrooper Walks Across Australia for Charity

In a continent far far away, a young adventurer named Jacob French is walking solo across the vast land of Australia.

It's an epic journey with a noble cause, but what made it truly Neatorama-worthy is that Jacob is doing so while wearing a Stormtrooper outfit:

Mr French, 20, started his ''Troopertrek'' on Monday and aims to arrive in Sydney by December. To achieve this, he will need to walk 35 to 40 kilometres a day, five days a week, while pushing his 50 -kilogram trolley of supplies and wearing his 10-kilogram suit, which he bought online.

''It does get very hot,'' he said. ''The helmet is not very well ventilated. It's like wearing a bucket on your head. It's not very flexible either, so I'm moving pretty slowly. I had to have it specially trimmed to make it less restrictive.
