On the many nights Egan remembers sleeping over at the M&C estate, he says his mother would call to make sure it was all right, and an adult would come to the phone and assure her all was well. And, in one respect, it was. Suddenly, things were happening for him career-wise. To walk away from M&C would mean telling himself he wasn’t cut out for Hollywood. When I ask Egan’s mother about that now, she bursts into tears. “We were raised in the Midwest, and we try to find the good in people,” Mound says. “And we went to New York and never had any problems, and he just seemed to be a success. He was just so happy and having so much fun.”
Absent the $1000 in spending money that Jarhead suggests I think a motorized electric bike and a portable solar charge could come in handy. I’ve seen some of these bikes sell for $300 brand new online. Throw in a good $100 fold up charger and you can augment your leg power for distance and steep uphill climbs. It’s not a best case scenario and it would still take a good month or more to get home from 1000 miles away but it will definitely speed things up and may save you a heart attack. You would just need to make sure the electric parts were hardened from an EMP.
