Man Travels with Dog and Giant Globe for Diabetes Awareness

cool story:

"Erik Bendl is pushing the weight of the world all over the country, and he's happy to do it.

He's 48 years old, from Louisville, Ky. and is walking thousands of miles across the U.S. with his dog, whose name is "Nice."

He's also accompanied by a giant globe.

But first, the backstory - we'll get to the globe in a moment.

His travels began after his mother - a Kentucky state representative - died of complications from diabetes in 1987."

I love this story, kind of reminds me of Terry Fox.
