Man Walks Across U.S.
"From Miami to Portland, Oregon," said Marchesi Battista, who said he and his two companions are doing it just because they love the outdoors.
Accompanying Battista on his cross-country journey are cyclist Enrico Guastini and the driver of their recreational vehicle. The three men began their trip 40 days ago and have covered about 1,500 miles.
They were in Ashland on Monday and, for the next few days, the men will make their way across Missouri. It's their second trip across the U.S., but they're not sure where they'll go next.
"After, if it is possible before, the fourth of July, Seattle, Vancouver, I don't know," said Battista.
