In what can only be described as a desperate quest for fame, John Winter Smith is attempting to visit every Starbuck’s coffee franchise in the world.

The 30 year-old Texan began his odyssey in 1998 and has so far visited 2,850 stores. The ever-expanding chain currently has 3,630 stores around the globe, with plans to open another 625 this year.

According to his own calculations, Smith has spent roughly $6,500 U.S. in travel expenses and coffee purchases since 2000. Information is not available on how many trips to the bathroom he made during the same period.
