Bearsun is currently on a journey that started on April 12 in Los Angeles with an initiail aim to be in San Francisco by April 17.

The person inside the suit, 33-year old Jesse Larios, says there was no real motivation to go on the journey.

“It was an impulsive decision for sure. I didn’t plan it out,” said Larios, who designed the suit himself.

Larios added that has started a GoFundMe account, which as of Wednesday had raised $7,100. Upon reaching San Francisco, he said he plans to hold an online vote to determine where to donate the money.

When needed, Larios takes breaks, eats and cleans up at nearby gas stations and sleeps wherever he’s at at the end of the day.

The walk has already taken longer than he had anticipated but he said he is not in that big of a rush.
