In 1994, a 73-year-old man named Alvin Straight, who could not get a driver's license due to poor health, traveled 240 miles from Laurens, Iowa to Blue River, Wisconsin, on a riding lawn mower to visit his ailing brother. The trip took six weeks in total, and his story inspired the film The Straight Story.
