Starts Tomarrow

Well I have less then 12 hours left before i start and my nerves are calming down. Everything is packed and ready to go.

But before I start I want to thank everyone who has helped in anyway.

Mrs. Keeler, I want to thank you so much for your support because without you, would be a huge morale loss.

Mr. D, I thank you for making a place for people to contact me easier and where they can learn about what I'm doing.

All my other teachers, I thank you for listening about the trip.

My mother, Thank you for everything from support to work done to make this trip possible. even though we had our down times we pulled together and now it's time to do this.

My Grandmother, For support, financially and mentally. You have helped me keep going even when people ridiculed me about my idea and you toughed it out with us.

My friends, Although some made fun, I thank each and every one of you. Because without you this would be boring. Making fun of my hair (with or without it) was fun and Others gave support and ideas. I will see you all soon.

My Sponsors, Without you this trip would not be possible. Shoes, Money and much more would be a problem, but thanks to your kindness we can complete this Trip.

Megan VanRiper, For helping build and take care of the pets, siblings, and house while we are gone.

Whitney Taylor, For help build and take care of the pets and house while Megan is gone and when she is there.

Thank you homeless children, For inspiring all of us to be better people and teaching us the lesson of helping others because you are the future that has been thrown off course.

Anybody that I missed I apologize, But rest assured that everyone who has helped in anyway has made this trip possible. even the smallest about of help is worth the world to me. Thank you for your time and effort to make this possible.

I have until tomorrow before I become a Homeless child for the summer.

Thank you all for what you have done,

David Ashby


  1. David,
    My best of luck to you. This is a great adventure for you with a great cause.
    When i was 19 in 1974, my friend and I rode ten speed bicycles from Connecticut to Disneyworld. The experience was what a person might call one of the highlights of life.
    You will meet many great people and have stories to share through a lifetime.
    God Bless

  2. Go David!!! It was a good send off today. I hope to walk with you for a while as you get to Longwood/Winter Springs area. Drink plenty of water. Coach Mante

  3. David, Great being there as you began your journey today. I'm proud to say I was your teacher! Godspeed on your journey!

  4. Woooooowwwwwwwwwwwwwww!!!!!! I admire you...I was homeless when I was 16-17! It's scary but so are some of the situations we are trying to get away from that lead to some teenage homelessness. I want to donate whatever I can.. How do I do that..? melissa

  5. Your amazing, thank you so much for what your doing. Wish you the best.

  6. Where will you be staying when you are not staying at shelters? How many miles a day will you walk a day? Where will your Mom stay? Good luck on your walk, you are very brave.

  7. To answer some questions:
    Mom will stay in shelters or in the car
    I will walk around 21 miles a day

    I will be sleeping outside if not in a shelter

    You can donate by helping your local shelters or donating to shelter (money, time or supplies)
