Man Traveling With Goat Across America

Posted: Updated:
ST. LOUIS, MO -

One man is taking a walk to remember...with an unlikely companion!

Steve Wescott is walking across America with his goat, Leroy Brown. They departed from the space needle in Seattle, Washington more than two years ago, and will spend the next two weeks in St. Louis, Missouri.

Wescott says some days they travel as little as four miles, but they have been able to do up to twenty miles in a single day depending on the goat's mood and the number of people who stop to talk to them.

"I'm walking 3800 miles across the country to raise money for an orphanage my friend and I started in Nairobi, Kenya. He's there with the kids.. I'm here with the goat," said Wescott.

The duo's journey will eventually lead them to New York City's Times Square.
