It’s very easy to envy Steve Fugate. After all, he walks alone almost every day through remote roads, hills, deserts and mountains, putting his 67-year-old body at risk against the elements, exhaustion and attack while dragging a heavy cart and sleeping in a tent. He has very little money and can’t call his children, because they’re both dead, according to Yahoo Travel.



It’s very easy to envy him because when you call him during his latest walk across America – he’s already done it seven times – he can’t sound any happier to be doing it. Fugate, known as the “Love Life guy” because of the sign he carries, is like a traveling muse to the heartbroken, helping others overcome extreme sadness the way he did.
