Loading the Bus for the first time. 

First day:  After we finished packing we departed Newport, RI. Waving goodbye to our home we realized we could not have been blessed with better weather to start our journey. Our first day was spent in Hartford, CT with an amazing young women, Kristen Duquette. Kristen is a paralympic hopeful and an incredibly driven young women who was introduced to our film after we won the Hartford Insurance Achieve Without Limits Award. We have all  gained not just another incredible subject in Kristen, but a great friend too. With all the incredible places for which we are bound I had no Idea that our first stop in our neighboring state would be so amazing. In addition to the beautiful day on the campus of Kristen’s College, We were treated like family at a dinner in the Duquette’s home. Kristens mother Dee could not have been more accomadating. Kristen’s coach left us with this great acronym to ponder for the rest of our trip. F.E.A.R: False expectations appearing real.
