Basically he is driving his 2 drafthorses (and 2 dogs) in a covered wagon from Montanta to Boston, and is hoping to make it here by Monday. He left in AUGUST 2006. Recently diagnosed with cancer, he made it his mission to reconnect with a childhood sweetheart. He started out with only $75 and two weeks' worth of food; he doesn't ask for help, but so many people have offered it up along the way thanks to his website and the media that's been tracking his journey. Lee's trip is nearly complete, but if you have a minute, check it out -- it's a sweet story.
