Skateboarding to Bonnaroo
By Ken Nicholson
CHATTANOOGA (WRCB) - One Florida man is making his way to the annual Bonnaroo Festival on an unusual set of wheels.
Dale Louttit is making the trip on his skateboard. He started the nearly 750 mile trip in Punta Gorda, Florida.
The 45-year-old Floridian says he's carrying around 60 pounds of equipment.
Luttit says he plans to make it over Monteagle by the end of the day.
"I'm gonna do something that nobody can take away from me, and this is it. But there is actually one person who can take this away from me and that's myself with the decisions I make on my journey," says Louttit.
Louttit says he's looking most forward to seeing the Zac Brown Band and the Flaming Lips.
After Bonnaroo, he plans on heading to Skate-Topia in Ohio, but this time he's hoping to hitch a ride.
