An Army veteran from Minnesota has set out to visit all 377 of his Facebook friends.

On April 2, Mikel McLaughlin started his cross-country trip in a rented red Volkswagen Beetle. He wants "to be with them while they’re doing whatever they enjoy doing."

He has been chronicling his venture through a blog titled 'We're Friends, Right?', which includes both updates and pictures. Some of the people he is visiting, it is the first time they are meeting each other.

So far has met about one-third of his Facebook friends.
