Jacob Mansberger rode his bike from Pennsylvania to Florida in 1927. In the evening, he stopped at farmhouses offering work in exchange for food and a place to sleep. He built the shack you see him leaning on upon his arrival. After a year or so he gave his bike and make-shift cabin to a homeless man and headed home to Pennsylvania with his working crew.....great story, nice adventure.
