Thank You....

As we end the year 2011, I want to extend a heartfelt Thank You to all those who have helped support The Fuller Center by contributing to my effort to ride across this great country. We stopped seven times along the way to help families in need of affordable housing, and they were all thankful for your generous support

Here are a few pictures of our 2011 bicycle trip.

This is what it is all about; here we are working on a rehab house.

The homeowner struggled to get out of bed to thank us; he now has a safe patio to enjoy.

It is only a ride of 20 miles each day. We just had to repeat the 20 miles 3 to 5 times each day.

The road can get lonely--you need to be good company to yourself.

Ahhhh....the beautiful cornfields.

Then we stop and talk, trying to raise more money for affordable housing

Some days were tougher than others.
Ray and Lady O like each other but are really just trying to stay warm long enough to get the picture taken.

We ran into a few unexpected stops without the sag wagon to snack from.

Not all the action was on bikes.

Before long, we were eating and drinking anything that didn't run away.

After each ride we worked on our bikes.....

or watched a movie.

Jonas, on tall bike, always got second and third looks.

We had photo ops at almost all 14 states plus D.C.

And then it was over....the joy and the tears.

'Mother Krystal' reading a children's story our last night together......

which put our warriors to sleep.

Sign language for "I Love You'....thanks for supporting The Fuller Center

Please consider joining or supporting us in 2012
