Ben Davis is walking from Los Angeles to Boston -- a trip that's almost 3,000 miles and would take over 5 hours in a plane and over 41 hours in a vehicle.

Averaging 25 miles a day, Ben reached Lebo, KS, the half way point in his journey on Monday. He's been documenting his journey online and recently hosted an "ask me anything" on Reddit where users could ask him about his trek across America.
