Not sure why this doesn't have 3-4 pages of hurrahs and support already, but here's mine.....


Best of luck with this. I hope the whole adventure comes together for you. Looking forward to the result.

Thanks CordR, the trip is a couple of months away, and the thread needs more photos. Plus more people are riding than staring at a computer screen.

Good news is........the promo video will be ready soon, and get sent off to OLN, even better news is Pete and I are leaving tomorrow morning for 2-3 days of riding in northern New Brunswick. Mixture of back roads, and forestry roads northbound for Mount Carleton to camp out. We are hoping to spend a full day exploring the dirt roads of the north, armed with a GoPro, two HD vid cameras, and a DSLR. Hoping to get some good pics and vids. It will be Pete's first big trip on the KLR.

Ride report to follow early next week.

Well folks the promo for the show is finished, and was sent to OLN last week. The editors from Hemmings House did a great job, with what they had to work with. So now we wait and see. Worst case, Pete and I have a nice keepsake.

Unfortunately we can't release the promo to the public yet, as soon as I get the green light, I'll post it up and you folks can all have a giggle.

I have a week of vacation coming up, time to hit the road again for a couple of days.

UPDATE

First the bad news........OLN said we had faces for radio, and weren't interested. They wanted something more overtop and outlandish, frig man what did you expect from two middle aged family guys.

Good news, we are going ahead with filming a web series for the trip, say a mini documentary on the Trans Labrador Highway. So for those of you who have never been up in the Big Land, it should make a for a nice preview of what to expect for anyone planning a trip in the following years.

Ferry to The Rock is booked for Sunday August 25th, sailing at 2345.

Pete had some t-shirts made up for us, they turned out pretty good. Check out the blog for more info

Sorry to hear about OLN. What do they know anyway? They'll just show some more Quasi Quad infomercials and repeats of Mantracker.

I'll watch your web series. .

To bad, but I will be watching your mini series.
Can you now post the clip you sent in to OLN. Would like to see that too. And who knows maybe some other network or station likes it and gets you going. There is many middle aged midlifecrisis men out there dreaming of a trip. Yours is something mostly everybody could also organize and do, what Charlie does we regular Joes can just dream about.

Geez man - I would have watched that faithfully every week. I'm sorry that OLN didn't have the brains to pick it up.

Have you shopped it to the Travel Channel, or Life? Christ - even (shudder) TSN?

You guys are far more entertaining than two hipster doofuses being chased by an old guy on horseback.

Thanks C-Stain, I sent a copy of your post to Hemmings House. They haven't given up on the idea.

We leave in a month for the first part of our adventure, where we go next year after Labrador is anyone's guess. Pete wants to go to Iceland, and we have an open invitation to go to Ireland too. All depends on the funds, or lack of in my case. I'd like to do a run across the rest of the country.

We'll see how this years adventure turns out on film and go from there.
