Now, I’m an introvert, but this is taking it to a whole new level.
“Shark repellent”? Really? I’d just go ahead and launch the search teams now.
The mastermind behind the man-propelled bubble, Reza Baluchi, calls it his Hydro Pod; he plans to travel inside it from Pompano Beach, Florida, to Bermuda, Haiti, Cuba and Puerto Rico. The first leg alone is about 1,033 miles
“Mind is power. It’s 85 percent your mind. Anything you can do,” Baluchi said.
This type of adventure isn’t unusual for the endurance athlete, who said he has survived weeks in Death Valley, biked across six continents and run around the perimeter of the United States.
In 2014, he tried to run across the sea in a similar bubble, but a distress signal notified the Coast Guard and Baluchi had to terminate his trip.
“They burst my bubble, and now I put signs up that say ‘please don’t burst my bubble,'” he said with a laugh.
