Audie, I am an exchange student coordinator with CETUSA. I have a student, that needs a host family. She rides a unicycle and when I did an internet search on Oklahoma Unicyclist your post came up. If you can help me find her a family please e-mail me tgroom@cetusa.org

thank you so much! I agree with what you said about GOunca. Wouldn't you like to see him or her do what we do? Now that would be a show!
