Day One Destination Decided





Andy, Chris and Ken have announced where they plan to camp on the night of August 1st - Historic Blakely State Park in Spanish Fort, AL. 

Nestled within the scenic Mobile-Tensaw Delta, Historic Blakeley State Park is one of the largest and most diverse attractions within the Gulf Coast region. Within it's more than 2,000 acres of some of the most biodiverse habitat in North America, the park contains the sites of Alabama's largest Civil War battle, the important early Alabama town of Blakeley, and Native American settlements dating back thousands of years. 

We hope it is a quiet biodiverse habitat as Andy and Chris have to start Day Two early.

BASE CAMP FAT ALBERT JUNIOR



Name correction noted below:

How are Andy, Chris and Ken going to sleep as they bike from the Gulf of Mexico to Lake Erie? Over the course of twenty-five (25) days, Ken will be following Andy and Chris' bike route in his SUV pulling this neat little Winnebago, appropriately named 'Minnie'. Although compact, it has enough room for the three of these guys plus supplies and gear. These guys are going to be sleeping like kings!

Ken Krempin Heads Up Support and Gear for Andy and Chris in August

Ken Krempin, Support and Gear


Starting out on August 1st, Andy and Chris Mull will be cycling from the Purple Parrot Tiki Bar to the Flora-Bama and continue to their goal point in Cleveland, Ohio on the shores of Lake Erie -  over 1,500 miles. If all goes well, they plan to be at Lake Erie by August 25th. That's right - over 1,500 miles in 25 days. Andy and Chris would never be able to do this by themselves. Luckily, they have an amazing guy going with them in a support vehicle. 


Everyone, meet Ken Krempin

Ken has been friends with these guys for years now and will be following them along their route, assisting with any emergencies, setting up base camp at the end of each day and breaking down base camp each morning. Having recovered from prostate cancer himself, Ken brings inspiration and dedication like none other. Ken, thanks for helping these guys get to Lake Erie and back!



Ken has led a pretty impressive life. He gave us this quick recap:

Born June 20, 1944 in Winnipeg, Canada and moved to Los Angeles, California in 1952. Associates degree in Business from Waldorf College, Forest City, Iowa and moved to Woodville, Ohio and attended the University of Toledo. I served in the Army, (Viet Nam era) Ft. Knox, KY from 1967 to 1970. I Moved to Westminster, Maryland in 1984 to 2014 and currently permanent move to Perdido Key, FL. My career has been varied in computer operation, system implementation as analyst, director MIS, VP of manufacturing operation to Independent Consultant. I have implemented large scale software systems for the State of Maryland Mass transit, Navy (Yokosuka, Japan, Pearl Harbor, and Guam) and the US Federal National Parks in Washington DC. My final retirement was 2012 from Honeywell in Columbia Maryland working in the space and defense division. I have traveled business and personal to the 49 states, need to visit Alaska to have all 50, Ontario Canada to British Columbia, Australia, and Ireland (Guinness brewery) Dublin, and cruise ships to Italy and Cozumel.
