Cross Country Audrey and Scott

I met Scott in 1996, at the nerd camp "Operation Catapult" held at Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology.  We both ended up attending RHIT for college, and we both moved to the Chicago area after graduating.  Scott has been a wonderful friend, the sort who you don't see all the time because they are always booked solid but you know that they would clear their calendar to help you.  In 2008, he took time off from his career to hike the Appalachian Trail, a long-planned adventure that didn't end the way he expected.  He wasn't able to finish the trail due to an injury, but he did meet Audrey.

Audrey and Scott are now married, and starting off on crossing the country in an orthogonal direction to their mountain hike.  You can get all of the details at Cross Country Audrey and follow along with them as they bike from California to Maine.  The trip is being undertaken to raise money for an organization that helps people who have been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis.  This isn't a large-group corporate organized trip, this is just Audrey, Scott, and their bikes.

The journey started for real today.  I wish the best of weather, health, circumstances, and experiences to both of them!
