In fact most of the fares found ranged anywhere from $3,000 to almost $4,000 in total. Now i can fully understand the phrases “Money ain’t a thang” and “it ain’t tricking if you got it” because apparently Dan Wuebben and his friend Belitsky have no problem throwing out money while the majority of the population is still striving to attain a little cash in their bank accounts.
According to Belitsky, him and his friend found a cab driver at LaGuardia Airport who signed up for a trip from the Airport to Los Angeles in the amount of $5,000; in the words of Jamie Foxx, what in the heeezzy.
Belitsky acknowledges that the trip was unplanned but rather it started out as a challenge from his father that no cab driver will ever take part of the 2,800 mile route from New York to Los Angeles and that he did it to merely prove his father wrong. Belitsky told KCNC-TV, “It was a great idea. We’ve met a lot of fun people, seen a lot of interesting things. I proved my father wrong.”
Mohammad Kalam, the driver, noticed a few differences between roads in New York and the West. “This is a long road, wide road,” Kalam told KCNC-TV. “There are no people. New York is too crowded, a lot of people, a lot of cars.
There are no cars here, I think.” As part of their 2,800-mile route, they took Interstate 80 from New York to Nebraska and then drove south on Interstate 76 toward the Denver area, where they stopped for an oil change.
The continuous journey then followed on by taking Interstate 70 to Utah and eventually driving down Interstate 5 to Los Angeles.
