Bob Across America

Bob Mueller is unicycling from Portland, Maine to Portland, Oregon to raise money for the American Red Cross National Disaster Relief Fund.

Landmarks & Great Art

Desperate times call for desperate measures. Not to worry! Everyone’s doing fine, but spotty internet calls for Mom to learn new skills and upload these photos from Annah.


 

The farm you see is that of Almanzo Wilder, of Little House on the Prairie fame. Connecting with a revered book from Mueller childhoods past must have certainly brought on the box of Crayola crayons. I’ll take the coloring as a good sign that Bob is keeping stress-free and mentally stimulated when he’s off the wheel. You can be sure Laura and Annah are coloring too, it’s a Mueller thing.

 



 

Nice to see Annah’s command post! This might be a great time to publicly thank Annah for her efforts. She is dealing with the techie end of things, designing all the promotional materials (postcards coming soon!) and she is the go-to person for well, everything. And rain? I think she’s busy drying things while Bob and Laura get more things wet.

 

 

The kids did 42 miles yesterday, ending the day in Malone, NY. Bob says they’ve enjoyed a lot of woots and well-wishes from people as they ride by, including some folks who saw them on the Burlington news broadcast. There will be links to more press, video and print, in the next few days.

Thanks for your prayers and encouragement, and thanks for your donations to the American Red Cross in support of the National Disaster Relief Fund and Bob’s ride.
