He started his walk across America back in September in San Diego.

Since then, he’s walked around 2,000 miles.

He plans to get to Savannah, Georgia, by mid-March, then he’ll return to England when his visa expires and will come back to the U.S. for another three months to continue walking to New York.

“I get various, different reactions when people ask me why I’m doing it. Some people, obviously, think I’m completely crazy, which is fair enough. It is quite an out-there thing to do. But, a lot of people find it inspiring, I hope,” he said.

Fremantle plans to walk across the world for three charities.
