horatio's ride

watching the ken burns documentary “Horatio’s Ride” about Horatio Nelson Jackson, an automotive enthusiast who drove a car from san francisco to new york city, on a bet.

the wager was, he would make it in less than 90 days, and win $50. oh, yeah — the year was 1903.

insane. i can’t imagine the tenacity it took to accomplish something like that.
