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: Tom
Case #: 13665
Tom Madlem had been riding motorcycles for 50 years. Death Valley was one trip he had never taken before though. He and a friend had planned to take 2 weeks off and make the ride. However, the first part of the trip was going to force Madlem to commit the “cardinal sin” - biking alone.
This meant he would be riding alone through the desert for two days before meeting up with his friend. After his wife and son begged him not to go by himself, he was then convinced to purchase his SPOT GEN3™ for the trip so his family would have peace of mind. He made it the first day just fine alone. Tuesday morning, he had not ridden 10 miles when he took a hard fall on his bike.
