It's impossible for me not to be intrigued by Ben Hooper's monumental challenge. How far will he get? It seems preposterous (probably is) and yet how wonderfully preposterous to set the bar so high.
I wish him success in every stroke he takes and no matter how far he gets, applaud him for having such massive cojones. Go on my son!
