RENO, Nev. (KRNV & -- You would think most United States Coast Guard and other Military Personnel spend their off-duty time at home, taking a break, but not Ray Rehberg and other members of "Go-Carts," a charitable organization made up of what they call themselves: "Guardsmen Carting Across the States."

Ray, a Coast Guard electrician and the president of "Go-Carts," came up with an idea after researching lithium golf carts, but not just for fun, for a cause.

The Go-Cart men plan to travel 3,900 miles cross country visiting veteran groups, and military bases within 13 states.

They plan to gather donations, and spread awareness of the Wounded Warriors Project (the charity that all proceeds of this quest will go to).

How will these men travel 150 miles per day in a golf cart? It's simple: with technical and moral aid from businesses nationwide.

After making the first stop in Petaluma, California, the infamous golf-cart is now stationed right in front of Reno's Atlantis Hotel. After reaching out to our local military groups, the Go-Carters are spreading knowledge and inspiration.

Ray and his Go-Carters have a very busy road ahead, but a road worth driving.

The team is headed to Utah next, and their destination is Yorktown, Virginia. Ray says he looks forward to being a part of the "feel good story of May."
