Build day in North Carolina

Build day in North Carolina

2012 Bicycle Adventurer

My name is Christian Willis, I am 19 years old and just graduated high school in Bethlehem, N.H.  I joined the Fuller Center Bike Adventure because I wanted to experience a change in lifestyle before I go off to college.

I am excited to be riding all the way from Williamsburg, Va., to Key West, Fla. We were welcomed to stay in the beautiful farmhouse of Josiah and his family, called Perry Farm. They have peacocks, emus, goats and donkeys, which are really cool to be around.

Today was build day and an incredible one at that, as we helped fix a house for a family who needs it. We painted cabinets and built railings on a dangerous porch. We brought in some appliances such as a refrigerator, a stove, and a dishwasher and started adding some steps onto the back. Most importantly, there was a working bathroom! It was a beautiful day and everyone had a great time.
