Sherwood Hunter lived on a boat in Louisiana. After Hurricane Katrina hit, he got a bike, trailers, and camping gear from Wal-Mart and rode all the way to high ground in Colorado.
"We've been on the road a long time," Hunter said. "The Coast Guard took us by boat to Mobile and we've been traveling ever since. A Wal-Mart in Kansas gave us this bicycle and the Wal-Mart here gave me a pair of shoes. People have been giving us stuff along the way. A lady gave me this sleeping bag, and I found this other sleeping bag along the side of the road."
Hunter said he has averaged 50 miles a day on the donated bicycle that pulls two carts. The dog rests in a covered cart while Hunter pedals.
Correction: The article says he got his bike in Kansas after "riding the rails" and hitching rides from Alabama.
