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.

Getting Out the Door

I can’t think of many Muellers who count themselves as ‘morning people’. Those who have stuff to do before 10 am drink coffee. Those who don’t, sleep.

A rare sight for the Mueller siblings.

 

In former cool New Hampshire and Vermont weather, we usually woke up at 10 am and took off at noon, but we’re now facing actual summer heat. After one afternoon with temps in the 90s, Bob and Laura magically found the energy to get going a little earlier.

But they weren't happy about it.

 

Early mornings aside, we’ve been having a grand time across New York, skirting around Rochester and finding lots of of very hospitable towns with strange names like Canandaigua, Geneseo, and Salamanca. The weather cooled off again today, and the kids blazed a record 62 miles, with hopes of an equally epic run tomorrow. Pennsylvania is coming up and we can’t wait to cross another state line!

Of course, we shall look both ways before crossing it.

Whee!

  1. I didn’t realize you were going near Rochester. Bek and her hubby live there. They could have come out to cheer.

    Btw, LOVE the morning grumpy looks!
