Oregon Man's Bicycle Journey Brings Him To South Mississippi

His name is Terry Hunter, but he says everybody calls him "Rainbow Scooter."

You may have seen "Rainbow" and his traveling companion, his dog Rita, here on the Coast in the last day or two. They are bicycling around the country. Rainbow started out in Oregon in October 2005.

"Homelessness is not a crime, it is a sadness among many. Compassion should be shared by all. So whether you share a little, or you share a lot, beware. Because in the blink of an eye, it could be you," Hunter said.

''Rainbow Scooter" asks people to donate to their favorite cause. He and Rita hope to finish their 4,600 mile bike trip in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina this fall.
