You're viewing the original Hometown Invasion Tour website as it appeared when launched in 2006. Back then, a site built with tables and flash was commonplace. A few changes were made, but it appears as it did eleven years ago. A modern and responsive version is in the works.

A Day To Remember


Thursday, Nov 16, 2006 from Roseburg, Oregon

Have you ever had a day where you sit back at the end of it and are in awe of what just happened? That’s me right now. Everyone here at the house is in bed, nice and tidy in bed. I’m exhausted but as awake as can be form the adrenaline still pumping inside me. It’s not from a roller coaster or anything crazy. It’s from an amazing day that will never be forgotten, and the people of Roseburg gave that to me.

Today will never, and I mean NEVER be told in full. There’s too much, it’s impossible. The comments people have said to me today are some of the most sincere and heart felt things I’ve ever heard. From person to person today people were telling me how amazing this trip is, how cool they think it is to see what I’m doing, how honored they are to meet me, and how special it is that Roseburg is represented on this trip.

I’m learning how special this trip is, not only to myself, but to those around me. People want to be heard and listened to. They want to talk and meet people and see what I’m up to. And I’m amazed, but i agree, with all the things Randy says about this trip and how big it really is. It’s that enthusiasm from people that is the last piece of the puzzle, making this trip more than I could have ever imagined. Random acts of kindness have never been so huge.

Today was full of adventure, laughs, and memories. I took in a lot of information, knowledge, and experienced everything around me. I’m here in awe at the end of the day. I feel like I’ve started something so pure and real, something that is so far out there, and even though I started this all on my own, I can’t even fathom what’s going on. This is what I was meant to live for and never in my life have I felt this much amazement and awe.

I'll be honest and say that I didnt know anything about you until I seen it on the news, but I will say that it caught my attention. I got on the KPIC.com website and read more about you. I seen your URL and went to it. To me this is pretty exciting. I think that you are a hero in some peoples eyes. I know that I have said many times that I wanna know what it would be like to go to every state and to learn and hear about a person that wanted that same thing I have always wanted to do is simply amazing. In my eyes I could see this person being a hero. Good Luck.....
