So,...

Things are shaping up nicely as we prep for this once in a lifetime journey. I had the busiest year of my life writing and photographing musicians for a coffee table book, now I am ready for some saddle time.!! Travis has a new job and convinced his new employer he needed a month off straight away and Richard's job is sort of intermittent. Our plan is to load up a Uhaul May 15th drive all the way to East coast(Myrtle Beach) and sniff out as much adventure as we can find on the way to the Pacific Ocean!! I made a little introductory video as a teaser for our impending adventure. Enjoy, subscribe and laugh along with us as we get freaked out, worn out and dusty. Soon to come are prep photos and before you know it we'll be on our way.




Check out the UPDATED Video!!

The team!


I am lucky enough to have friends who can tolerate my puns and my numerous quirks(neuroses). I have traveled with both of them and they are my best chance for completing this long adventure.

Richard is on left Travis is on right. Richard's strengths are that he is even tempered, dependable, honest and much handier with a wrench than Travis or myself.
Travis (in sunglasses) possesses an extremely dry sense of humor and had recently moved back to Texas from NYC. He was recently re-infected with motorcycle-itus from which there is no cure.


Sneak peak: also I may have a video called American Dirt if I can edit everything I shot.

Interested

I was going to watch your "teaser", but alas, the video is marked private...
