If you haven't seen the movie "Up", you should.  It's a cartoon but it tells a more authentic love story in a three-minute montage than every Katherine Heigl movie combined.

And it has inspired a 2,500 mile trip for Jonathan Trappe. The only thing keeping him up? 365 helium balloons.

Balloonists have wanted to cross the Atlantic for decades but there is a 'demon in the air' and five have died while no one succeeded. Trappe got attention flying across the English Channel so he is crowd-sourcing the funding for this new, much more expensive endeavor.  He also expects to set an altitude record in the process - 25,000 feet up.
