America reCycled: cross-country by bicycle

The brothers are Tim and Noah Hussin, a young award-winning photojournalist and Fulbright scholar. For this year-long journey, they're 'digital hobos', as they call it, who will be eating out of dumpsters and sleeping under bridges but also pulling out a notebook computer or microphone when they have something to say. They were funded by $3,299 raised from Kickstarter, a non-profit that helps entrepreneurs, receiving $1299 than they planned to raise.
