Help Bixby get back on the road

Over the last 2 years I have been on a cross country bicycle ride with my best friend Bixby (5 yr old rescue pooch) and Chicken Charlie (rubber safety chicken). Together we have pedaled over 9,300 mile through 31 states having an epic adventure and promoting pet adoption from local shelters all across the country. We get a lot of media and we use that to help other shelter dogs find their humans to rescue. Overnight someone stole our bicycle in Mission Beach, CA. It's a very special Yuba Mundo cargo bike that has completly changed my life. A former smoker and bartender I set out on this adventure to change my life and do something I'm proud of and make a difference. This bicyle represents so much. Not only was the bike stolen, but Chicken Charlie, Bixby's crate (her Bed) our lights, Bixby's toys, bluetooth speaker, ipod, GoPro, etc.. We're pretty devestated not to mention stranded in Mission Beach. After 2 years on the road I cannot believe its gone. We had every intention of doing another tour. The Hug Your Dog Tour back across the country, but for now that's on hold. It will take some time just to piece a new bike together again if we can get one. I've been asked by people to start a GoFundMe so here it goes. If you'd like to help us out to replace our stolen stuff and help support our trek across the country, we sure do appriciate it. Right now it seems really bad and we're trying to see the silver lining. Thank you to everyone who helps us out. As Bixby always says, "Dreams are like sticks, you just have to chase them." If you're not familiar with our journey, check out wheresbixby.com or just google "Wheres Bixby" and you'll see how far we've been and all the shelters we've visited and the media we've recieved.
