Every man chooses his own ride.

Have you ever seen that film about the fellow that rides a lawn mower from Ohio to Michigan to visit his brother before he dies?
I am not sure about the start and end, but it was a fair distance.

There was a guy out here in my neck of the woods that got in trouble for drinking and driving so he started riding his mower to the bar. The cops found it humorous for about 3 seconds and proceeded to nail him yet again. He then started driving his mower across the front yards of the people on the way to the bar to keep off the public roadways and that got the neighbors all in a tizzy because he could not differentiate between grass, garden and fences after a night at the hooch house. He was threatened with arrest for property damage but none of the people would press charges cuz he was a friend with everyone. He did come up with a solution in the end... the railroad. There was an abandoned spur that ran back behind his property and paralleled the roadway passing conveniently half a block behind the tavern. He took the wheels off his mower and built an adapter thingy so he could ride the rails. The police left him alone because even though he was on private property, the railroad never said a thing. In the end, the light at the end of the tunnel is a drunk guy on a Toro.
