Ron and Meghan met in 2015. Ron began to tell Meghan a "crazy" idea that he had to raise money and awareness to help out a nonprofit and people with special needs. His idea was to bike from Oregon to Pennsylvania. He asked Meghan if she was good with computers and if she could help him do research on finding a special cart he could pull behind a bicycle that he could tow his dog, gear and tent in so he could ride across the country to raise awareness for service animals. In 2016, Ron brought Meghan out to the Oregon Coast on vacation and she instantly fell in love with the coast and mountainous region. Meghan went back home to PA and began to explore the options of moving to the coast. In a short 4 months, Meghan was able to make the decision and gigantic step to move to the West Coast. During her time here on the Coast, she and Ron explored the area and started to plan Onyx's Great Adventure.
