Departure from HealthSouth
Rehab Hospital of Tustin
Lukas, AJ, and Abel discover the Rosetta Stone on the beaches of California, from which they will begin their ride.
Luke impresses Abel when he performs 500 arm presses without making hardly any scratches on Abel's new truck.
AJ laughs at her own feeble attempt at a joke while Paige doesn’t think it was very funny at all.
Kathleen Smith (CEO), Luke, OC Register Photographer Jebb Harris, and AJ
scratches his chin in amazement as AJ teaches Jebb Harris how to do
“Here’s the church, here’s the steeple, open the door, and here are the
people.” Kathleen loses interest because she wanted AJ to play
Paige and her mom. We think they are two beautiful ladies.
(CEO) and Lee Fallon (DMO) politely ask the riders to move up their
departure as they had already eaten all the food and misappropriated
over 42 tubes of chapstick.
Luke pouts after AJ
got the pretty pink hat that he wanted. AJ tells Luke that pink hats are

The riders present
Paige with a girly pink hat making her an honorary member of the group.
Luke continues to pout. Paige truly is AAA’s biggest fan!
While Paige signs
autographs for Luke, he’s busy daydreaming and regretting his lost
opportunity. Last night he decided to stay in and order pizza instead of
heading to the pool with the girl’s softball team from next door.
AJ tries to teach Lorraine how to do the latest dance craze: The Bilateral Boogie. After AJ’s dance, Paige is ashamed to be known as a bilateral and turns away in disgust. Upon observing AJ’s behavior, Paige’s mother anxiously whisks her away so that she doesn’t learn any more bad habits. She was heard muttering “Don’t talk to STRANGE-ers!”
Lorraine has been working hard and enjoys taking a short break. Luke is STILL pouting about not having a pink hat and, in show of defiance, decides to sign all subsequent posters upside-down. Lorraine’s physical therapist puts “standing on head” on her list of tasks to accomplish in order to read Luke’s message of encouragement.
Not finding the facilities sanitary enough to use, Luke claims that Joe told him to just go anywhere. He decides to christen Abel’s truck. Abel is heard muttering to himself that travelling with Joe last year was bad enough but this year promises to be even better.
With a look of
indignation about Abel's mutterings, using all his wits, Luke puts on
his Camel Back prior to his 5-mile ride. Unfortunately, he forgot to add
the most important feature: water. Boy, those Colorado boys sure are
After being kicked out of the truck, Luke tries to decide where to go next. He can read so he doesn’t need any stinkin’ GPS. Two hundred ninety-eight hours later, he decides to turn around when he reaches Ontario, Canada.
Luke on the
029: The riders
have heard that “Good cheese comes from happy cows. Happy cows come from
California.” Abel tries to ask the cows if they are happy, but the only
response he gets is “moo.”
