Man Treks to Key West In Solar Stroller


Bruce Maynard, who used to run marathons, now has some knee problems but still wants to travel 30 miles a day from Bellingham, UK to Key West, Florida. To accomplish his lofty mission, he is traveling in a solar- and battery-powered stroller. Nicknamed "Sam", the vehicle has a foldable solar panel that doubles as a work table and computer stand. The 74 year-old former businessman will also carry along a tent for shelter during his ambitious trek. Although he is not doing this for any charitable reason, he plans to participate in any green events that he runs across. Bon voyage, Mr. Maynard.
