A message from the Connecticut Burns Care Foundation

Ryan and Dwight hope to raise $10,000 to support the burn camp, which will host 70 children between the ages of 8 and 18. They are determined to reach the West Coast as a personal challenge as well as helping young burn survivors.

Started in 1991, the Arthur C. Luf Children's Burn Camp is located in northern Connecticut on 176 acres. Every summer, burn survivors come to the burn camp, which is a safe and fun environment that helps kids heal emotionally and physically. The Burn Camp is free to the children, who come primarily from the Northeast and some foreign counteries, but any burn survivor child anywhere is welcome. More than 70 adult counselors, primarily active and retired firefighters and burn unit nurses, occupational and physical therapists, child psychologists and even a doctor will serve as mentors for the week.

It's also our goal to promote burn awareness and fire prevention and education, which we do year around. We sponsor a burn survivor, burned in a car accident that involved speeding and drinking alcohol, who speaks to high school students throughout Connecticut. We also support the burn unit at Bridgeport Hospital, helping to purchase equipment.

Hi Guys-
So, what is your next adventure? Make sure you let us know how to track it, whatever it is.
Best wishes to both of you. You are both unique and don't let anybody ever try to convince you otherwise. Not that they'd want to, anyway. I am very glad you had a flat tire that ended you up in Atchison, KS for a short while. The flat was not good for you, but it sure was for us. I have a favorite little saying that is important to remember in life and that is that "the journey's the thing" - something I'm sure the two of you have figured out by now if you didn't already know it before you started your trip.
Travel safe always, and remember, no hitching OR falling on trains, Ryan. You are very sweet people.
Claudia/Atchison
