Meet the Pedouins – Family of 5 Riding 7,000 Miles from Kentucky to Alaska

Meet the Pedouins, a family of five riding 7,000 mile ride from Kentucky to Alaska.  They stopped by KEEN last week to have lunch with our President and CEO James Curleigh.

“We set out to prove that it is possible for a blue collar worker and a stay-at-home mom to live their dream. A dream to show our girls this great country we live in.”

The Pedouins (named after the nomadic Bedouin tribe of course) are Bill and Amarins Harrison and their kids (ages ranging from two to six!) Cheyenne, Jasmine and Robin. On August 1, 2009, the family left Kentucky with $300 in their pockets. “We set out to prove that it is possible for a blue collar worker and a stay-at-home mom to live their dream. A dream to show our girls this great country we live in.”

The Pedouins rely on grassroots support and the kindness of strangers they meet along the way.  This family is hard not to love. Spend a few minutes at Pedouins.org and we think you’ll agree.
