An adventurer's extreme plan to spend the next three or four weeks on the Atlantic Ocean "walking" from Florida to New York in a hamster wheel-like vessel he calls his bubble, has ended in just one day after kick off.

.

Ray "Reza" Baluchi set out from St. Augustine, Florida on Friday and planned to make his way out to the Gulf Stream, which would help propel him up the East Coast to New York.





He said he was making the 'walk on water' because he wanted to raise money for first responder charities.


However, just a day after he started his journey, Baluchi decided he had to turn back because he was having problems with his tracking system and his backup device was missing.






He ended up on the Palm Coast beach in Florida about 22 miles south of where he started, saying he could get new equipment in that location.


He said his team was going to purchase a replacement device, so he could resume his journey, but the Coast Guard wouldn't let him. The coast guard said his voyage was too risky and he wouldn't be let to go on such mission if he didn't put the right measures in place.Latest Post
