Bedford, NH Man Visits All 3,142 Counties In The U.S In 1 Year
Hugh Donovan from Bedford, New Hampshire stepped into 2019 with a unique resolution. He wasn't going to go to the gym 3 times a week, he wasn't going to cut down on screen time, he was going to visit every single county in the good ole' U.S of A and he was going to do it in one calendar year.
On Saturday Hugh crossed into Clermont County, Ohio, which is just east of Cincinnati and that was the final county Hugh needed to visit. It only took him 8 months! Hugh was greeted by over 20 family members who traveled to watch him complete this mission.
If you are interested in joining, there is an organization of folks who keep track of all the counties they visit. They are called the "Extra Miler Club". The VP of this club presented Hugh with a plaque after he crossed the Clermont County line.
Hugh and his journey will be featured on an upcoming episode of NH Chronicle.
