Thumbs up 'Hobo Nick' Kleckner Walks From Florida To California In 178 Days

He had a "comfortable life" as an electrician, but one thing Nick Kleckner says he lacked was a higher purpose.

So earlier this year, the 25-year-old decided to leave his job and all his possessions behind and walk across the United States from Florida to California.

Kleckner, who later adopted the moniker "Hobo Nick," bought a one-way plane ticket to Jacksonville, Fla., where he began his journey April 5 with little else but a sleeping bag and a prayer. He had neither food nor money, and resolved to trek alone and on foot, without asking for food or money.
After 178 days and 2,500 miles, Hobo Nick arrived in Huntington Beach, Calif., on Oct. 2, about 55 pounds leaner and a bit wiser.

"Since I have been homeless I have lived more in the moment and have really learned to be thankful," Kleckner told GapYear.com.

In this video interview, given a little less than half way into his trip across the country, Kleckner said that he started with little faith, but asked God to guide him on his journey.
