Georgia Fan Riding Motor Scooter From Athens To Pasadena

One diehard Georgia fan is driving from Athens, GA to Pasadena, CA via scooter

The Bulldog nation is traveling to the Rose Bowl in Pasadena in force by plane, car, bus and train to see Georgia play Oklahoma in the College Football Playoff Semifinal.

But only one man is making the journey across the country via motor scooter …

According to his Facebook and Instagram profiles, Clark Hurst, a self-described “scooter adventurist,” started his journey on December 21 at Sanford Stadium.

You may remember Clark Hurst as this man – the “crazy Georgia fan” who called out Spurrier in 2009.

While his exact route is unclear, along the way he has posted videos on his YouTube channel from Columbus, Georgia on December 22, mentions going through Bogalusa, Louisiana on December 24, offered Christmas greetings from the Sam Houston National Forest in Texas on December 25, and talks about fixing a minor fuel leak in Del Rio, Texas on December 27.

Assuming he is avoiding highways, Del Rio is 1,361 miles from Athens according to Google Maps, and it is another 1,388 miles to Pasadena. This puts Hurst about halfway through what will be a total 2,749 mile journey. Google Maps indicates that this would be a 51 hour trip by car, but scooters travel at about half that speed. He has averaged 227 miles per day thus far, but he will need to average 278 miles per day to complete the trip in 11 days to make it to the Rose Bowl by January 1.

Like a true Bulldog fan, and perhaps taking a cue from Coach Kirby Smart, Hurst cites that he is frequenting Waffle House locations to sustain himself along the way.
