A 20-year-old's quest to become the youngest person to fly around the world solo ran into a bit of a snafu this week: He forgot his passport.
Jack Wiegand, a California native, was in his first international destination -- Canada -- when he realized he was missing the important document, the Fresno Bee reported.
After a bit of a panic, Wiegand remembered that just a few days earlier he had done the responsible thing most travelers do: Make copies of his passport.
Luckily for him, it was sitting right where he'd left it.
"I told (my mom) to check the copy machine...sure enough, it was there!" he wrote in his blog. Wow. What a bittersweet feeling that was. At least I knew it was not stolen."
With some help from UPS, Wiegand got his passport and according to the Bee was scheduled to fly out on Friday morning.
"It was a mistake that I hope to not make again," he added on his blog.
In addition to making history, Wiegand's journey is benefiting Big Brothers Big Sisters and International Agri-Center Ag Warriors.
