Habitat for Humanity Road Trip Crazies

Back in the day, a group of people from Lynchburg, Virginia loved to build houses for wonderful local families of Habitat for Humanity, but they felt an itch to build houses elsewhere. So they they took a road trip to build houses in Georgia and then in South Carolina and then all over the south. Before long, they were scheduling trips all over the country to help local Habitat affiliates from New Jersey to California. At each stop, a few more people decide to join in the fun and travel with this group affectionately known as “Crazies.”

Author David Rubel wrote about the Crazies in his book about Habitat for Humanity, If I Had A HammerClick here for a time lapse video of a 2013 build in Morristown, TN.

“The desire of the group of people behind the book is to give real-life examples of what just one mistake could cost you and also share details of what life is like in prison.  Doing time is no joke!  Committing crimes is no joke!  Wouldn’t it be helpful for the youth of today to hear from people who have walked the same paths they are currently traveling?  If it changed the life of one single person, then the answer is a resounding yes!”
