The Student Conservation Association
Beyond inspiring this crazy adventure, the Student Conservation Association has been a pivotal partner in helping us make it to California.

We think fondly of them when we sleep soundly on their sleep mats, when we cook with their cookware, and when we admire our sharp matching SCA fleeces.

Garbo Grabber came to visit us early in our walk across Kansas and saved us from the crazy western Kansas winds with their amazing product. Gone are the days of rolling (and re-rolling) trash bags all day. Welcome to the days of throwing litter into each other's Garbo Grabber units like they're basketball hoops. This year, they donated funds to buy our new support vehicle, Rango the Durango
