They have created the awesome challenge of driving to 48 states in 52 weeks and collecting inspiring examples of community interaction and innovation. Saturday they came to The Generous Garden to interview the Director Bo Cable and be amazed by the work of volunteers. As the Volunteer Coordinator, I had communicated with over 50ppl who volunteered for that day; but because of the rain we ended with 22. I’m sure they were able to get a great story anyway.
I was inspired by THEIR story! It has been my 8yr DREAM to travel across country in an RV with my children! I decided last summer that I’m going to do it this summer, but after talking with Gelb I see that it’s going to take A LOT of planning. He spent 2 years planning! I also realized how much I DON’T know. I would love to stay in contact with him and pick his brain when I need it.
It’s sooo totally cool to be young and free to come and go and to travel as you desire. As I stood talking with them I remember having a dream to travel across country even at the age of 16. At age 21 I went on a business trip with a colleague to Las Vegas and we decided to extend our trip. We drove to Mexico and traveled up the west coast, sleeping in the car, all the way to Los Angeles before flying home. What fun!
I pray that these 5 will have safe travels and find much success as they travel on their Bus 52 to inspire America. They have definitely inspired me and made me more determined to live my (other) dream!
