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.

Dry Erase Marker Across America

Here are three more Mueller unicyclists mugging in front of the large laminated map of the U.S. proudly hanging in the Mueller kitchen. Sadly, while Bob and Laura are sweating for hours and hours daily, sometimes covering over a hundred miles, there’s a Mueller in Maine hoisting a dry erase marker and covering about an inch. It only takes a second and no one has popped a sweat.

They did not want to pose in front of the map, can you tell?


Today Bob and Laura rode about 75 miles, winding up somewhere beyond Worthington, MN. Annah texted me earlier saying that it was a great day for the athletes but not so great for the techie. The internet is not so hot, but Bob and Laura are. Annah stayed very busy keeping the athletes hydrated. They are hugging the Iowa/Minnesota border, hot but taking advantage of calmer winds. 

Special thanks to Dawn at the U.S.Cellular in Le Mars, Iowa, not only for the technical assistance with Laura’s new phone but for accepting packages from home and from our friends at  It’s no small feat to figure out where and how to ship packages.  Despite our best calculations the kids lost a day and spent an extra $100 in gas when Bob’s last innertube ‘went’ a little ahead of schedule. So. If you’re inclined to give to the Red Cross today through Bob’s site, please know that a small portion goes to reimburse the kids for their trip expenses.  We thank you for giving to help those in need all over our great country, and for a little gas and innertube money for Bob.
