COLUMBUS, Ind. A Columbus man plans to spend the next five months traveling through southeastern Asia on a bicycle while working on charitable projects and experiencing local culture.

The 3,500-mile bike trip will be the longest to date for Loran Bohall. His top distance previously was a 1,000-mile journey through western Europe.

Bohall tells The Republic (http://bit.ly/19eEE9o ) he'll travel with former Cummins engineer Kevin Altevogt. The two plan to keep a journal and document their journey with videos in hopes of publishing the material later.

Bohall's charitable projects likely will include building homes through Habitat for Humanity.

The trip is expected to cost about $5,000. The duo hopes to defray some of the cost through a kickstarter.com campaign.
