His name is Erik Bendl and he is walking across the country to raise diabetes awareness. On this trip he is walking with his dog, Nice, and his giant world ball from Kentucky to Kansas City, KS.
We saw him in Raytown on our way home on Sunday, and Justin saw him yesterday in KC. He might already be done with this trip, because he was pretty close to the end yesterday.
He is definitely a unique sight and I admire what he is doing. I imagine he’s having a pretty incredible experience and it seems like he has met a lot of friendly people on his journey.
Good luck World Guy!!
