WILMINGTON, Del. - Imagine quitting your job during a recession and risking everything to follow your dreams. A California man has done exactly that.

He quit his job as a software engineer earlier this year so he could travel across the country. This week he spent some time in Delaware. Andrew Fu's home is his car now and that's fine with him.

"It's been a dream of mine to not know what comes next and this is how I thought about doing it," he said.

Fu left his home in California in March and has visited nearly 30 states. Along the way he said he's seen amazing scenery and takes lots of pictures. This week his pictures were of Delaware. On Thursday he toured a Wilmington Brewery.

Fu says, "From beggars to millionaires to firefighters to police breaking world records, its been an amazing journey and has opened my eyes to so many new possibilities."

Life on the road is simple. Fu sleeps on a small mattress he made from cardboard and foam.

All of his clothes fit in one box. He eats canned food, peanut butter and jelly and cuts his own hair. For Andrew though it's a dream. Fu said his trip will end late this summer when he goes back to school to get his MBA. Fu has also been keeping track of his journey on a blog.

The blog has live updates of his travels. To read the blog and to find out more about Fu's trip, go to
