750 Miles on One Wheel

Maxwell DeMilner of Peru has hit upon a novel way of raising money for college. He's taking a 750-mile tour of New England on his unicycle, leaving Rumford on May 6 and collecting contributions along the way.
His journey will make a loop through New Hampshire's White Mountains, Vermont's Green Mountains, western Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island and eastern Massachusetts before ending up in Rumford.

All the while, he'll be towing a trailer.

The goal, DeMilner said, is to raise $2,000 for tuition and supplies when he returns to college. He attended Chester College of New England in New Hampshire for the 2004-2005 school year, but didn't return this school year because he didn't have enough money. [Link]
