It's like Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure! But wait, this one is Jesse and Bruce. We thought it sounded like an epic mission: Jesse and Bruce Walk America to raise money for the Dana Farber Cancer Institute. Actually, Bruce was unable to partake in the event so Jesse Simmons is solo and just got started on January 6. The route should take 5 months and cover roughly 3,800 miles. Jesse will be filming the entire trip for an upcoming documentary. So everyone can see the progress, Jesse has posted a SPOT Shared page. Jesse plans to hit the “check-in” button a couple times a day. See more or donate to this great cause at http://jesseandbrucewalkamerica.com/
Rescue Profile: Bill and Andreas
Case #: 12629
One June afternoon, Peschka was cycling in Sweetwater County where he stumbled upon Andreas Fassbender, a German cyclist heading north to Canada. Fassbender had been catapulted off his bike after hitting a patch of deep sand with the front wheel. Fassbender had been lying on the ground waiting for 2 hours as he was unable to connect to local authorities due to lack of cellular coverage. Luckily for Fassbender, Peschka had his SPOT handy.
The SOS was pushed and within 30 minutes, Sweetwater County Sheriff’s Office had arrived on the scene and was looking for SPOT Owner, Peschka by name. Two ambulances had been dispatched because they were unsure of the road conditions and wanted to get quickly to Fassbender’s aide. They loaded Fassbender into the ambulance and off they went.
