Drift Roberts and Smile Train

We have a friend staying with us right now in Eugene. Drift Roberts, a young stand up comic, is walking from Portland, OR to Los Angeles, CA, which is roughly 1000 miles, at the rate about 25 miles a day. He started October 15th and is going through November 23rd, spreading the word and raising money for Smile Train and its cause. Smile Train’s mission is to provide free cleft surgery to hundreds of thousands of poor children in developing countries. (more info HERE)

He spent some time with us in Eugene. I showed him Eugene by bike and we spent time riding around and just relaxing. We hiked up to the top of Skinner’s Butte, then ate some biscuits and gravy at the Wandering Goat. It was a great time; we enjoyed having him around.
