McLaughlin said he hasn’t quite figured out how to make money from his enterprise. His blog has a “Donate” button and indicates his expenses as of Tuesday were $1,925.27. But he said he’s only raised $10. He also indicates he’ll take speaking engagements. “My fee: $0.”

McLaughlin returned from his trip May 2, just in time for a planned date that night with Sage. He said Wednesday would be his last day behind the wheel of the limo. He might take another trip through a different part of the U.S. this summer, but he said for now he’s trying to meet more Minnesota Facebook friends, time permitting.

“I’m going for quality over quantity,” he said.
