Covered Wagon Bound for D.C. Treks Through Lynchburg
Lynchburg, VA - A man on a mission passed through Lynchburg Sunday, and he couldn't get through without turning a lot of heads. That's because Ralph Casey is driving a covered wagon.
He is driving from his home in Georgia to Washington D.C. with a message: to get answers for small business owners from what he considers a "government gone astray."
He left April 30 and stopped just outside of Lynchburg on his way to the nation's capital. When he arrives, Casey says he wants to talk to lawmakers and President Barack Obama. But acknowledges that "they probably won't give me the time of day."
Casey travels between three to four miles per hour at a rate of about 15 miles per day.
