Harrison K-9
Security Services, LLC

The owner of Harrison K-9 and I have been close personal friends for many years, and I hold him in the very highest regard. And over the years I have owned two of his dogs, one I got as a puppy and the last one was a fully trained, push button working dog. Having worked in law enforcement and the security industry in hostile theaters, I know the value of a good working dog...and they are priceless.  Harrison K-9 provides the very best close personal protection dogs in the world, period. If you need close personal protection for you and your family, this is the only place to get it. These dogs never go “off line”, they are not dependent on the power grid, your smart phone, or waiting for the police to arrive after your 911 call. (The police are always minutes or more away when seconds count). These dogs are instant protection for you and your family, the kind of protection that you can always count on 24/7/365.  The only question is this:  What is your family worth?

Our good friend Dave Imlay, the manager of CARQUEST Auto Parts in Homer, Alaska stopped by our moving sale one day and asked what he could do for us.  I gave him a list of things we needed for the bikes.  He stepped up to the plate and donated oil filters, engine oil and a couple of cases of Sea Foam.  Thank you Dave!  If you are in Homer and need parts for anything, Dave will go the extra mile to help you out!  He is a great guy!

IMS are makers of custom gas tanks for Motorcycles, along with some other motorcycle accessories.  We have experience with IMS products in the fact that I installed a 6 gallon IMS tank on Lana’s 2000 KLR before we left Alaska…….and I can tell you that their tanks are second to none.   IMS has graciously agreed to partner with us by sending us two 10 gallon gas tanks for our KLR's.  We are extremely happy that they have come aboard as a partner in our humanitarian mission.  Thank you IMS and thank you Rachel~!!!

One of the most amazing partnerships that we have formed is with Dinse Dental Care in East Petersburg, PA.  Through a contact via a mutual friend, Dr. Dinse (pronounced like "rinse") agreed to provide us with all of our dental work!!  Lana and I are still a bit stunned at his generosity.  I can tell you that not all of the visits I have had to a dentist have been good.  In fact some have been downright……well let’s just say VERY bad….. with the kind of pain that will either levitate you right out of the chair or you try to crawl through the bottom of the chair to escape the mad man hovering over you with a syringe and drill.  Dr. Dinse changed that.  I can tell you that I do NOT like needles…especially the ones that are going to be stuck in my gums….you know…the needles that look like they are about 12” long that are stuck down under your tooth. With Dr. Dinse at the syringe I never felt a thing!!!  Now that was a first!!!  And Lana had the same experience. If you are even a few days drive from his office, he is the Doctor to go see. (Click on his logo) You will be very happy that you did!!!  Thank you Dr. Dinse, and your staff, for your support.  GOD Bless you all.

Bob Weidman, the owner and videographer at Video Trust, graciously agreed to video a speech I was giving at Pastor Bob Stillman’s church in Peach Bottom, Pennsylvania.  After I was done Bob came up to me with tears in his eyes and said, “I had no idea what you were really doing on your expedition.  What you are doing is truly amazing.  I want to b your videographer.”   We were, and still are, thrilled to have Bob on board with Team Travessilla.  He is the consummate videographer, with skills that go beyond explanation. Thank you Bob for joining our team!!!  We look forward to working with you.

Chris Snyder is the most knowledgeable IT guy that I have ever even heard of, much less had the privilege of working with.  Chris joined Team Travessilla as our go to guy for everything to do with communications and computers.  Thank you Chris for joining our team!!!  It is a privilege to work with you.  If you have computer problems CHS Tech Solutions is the company you need to contact!

Sawyer International has graciously made a deal to provide water filters to us at a greatly reduced (read unheard of) rate.  In fact it was of such an unheard of deal that our man in the USA called them to confirm it.  To tell you the truth…….we are all still a bit stunned by their overwhelming generosity.  Thank you Sawyer~!!!


We are now are able to get water filters directly into the hands of villagers who desperately need them.  For the application that we need water filters for…Sawyer makes the best in the world, period.  Click on their name above and check out their many fine products.

Church Partners

Seeing the importance of our humanitarian mission to save children lives…….that is what Pastor Milt Michener, and the congregation of Summit Worship Center in Wasilla, Alaska were able to do.  We thank all of you for aligning with us by providing prayer support
