Bob (Unicycles) Across America!

Slightly reminiscent of Forrest Gump’s cross country jog, Bob Mueller, 20, left Portland, Maine on May 17 riding a 36-inch unicycle and intends on finishing in Portland, Oregon in a fundraising ride for the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund.

Bob, along with his 18 year-old sister, Laura, are hoping to raise $40,000 for the relief fund — they’re off to a good start, raising $2,475 to date.

Another sister, Annah, 23, has been following the two in her car in case of emergency. Thus far, the only trouble they’ve encountered has been high winds and a lack of access to bathing facilities. The trio is suppose to touch down in the City of Roses sometime in August.
