Zygmontowicz encourages people to visit his website and donate to Brigitte Schroeder, who treated him to a stay at the Bryant House on Saturday, asked to consider diabetes, or heart disease, as bad a killer as cancer, as his charity.

While one can only speculate what unusual forces drive someone to skateboard through life in such a way, the perpetrator of this distinction said he was not driven by a cause.

“Maine to Key West was the original trip. Now it’s blossomed into more than I ever expected. I’m meeting all walks of life. They have less than I do. I look at them all the same,” he said. “I haven’t met one a**h*l* yet on this trip.”

Probably fearing for his life, Zygmontowicz does not travel on interstate highways, but anywhere else, a road is a road is a road.

And should a cop stop to discuss the rules of the road, “I give him a business card and ask him for lunch money,” he said brightly.

“More people stop to ask me if I need a ride or if I need help,” has been Zygmontowicz’s experience.
