Jesse Larios says he does not know exactly what inspired him to dress up as the character he has named Bearsun and start the over 644km trip.

“It was an impulsive decision for sure. I didn’t plan it out,” said the 33-year-old in the brown-and-white suit he designed.

The journey Larios began on April 12 drew fans from all over.

He visits gas stations for meals and to clean up, and just slept inside the suit wherever he found himself at the end of the day. The trip took longer than anticipated but he said he was not in a huge rush.
