The Un-Road Trip Comes to San Diego!

A few months back I heard from the friendly folks at Hostelling International in San Diego who had heard me on the radio and were wondering whether I'd speak at their annual meeting. I said yes, of course, and I'll be flying down next week (on a pedal-powered plane...) to talk about my trip and show some clips. It should be a fun evening and if you're in the area you should come on by!

Spirit of Hostelling Annual Meeting and Party
Monday, October 3, 2011 from 6:00 PM to 8:30 PM (PT)
San Diego Foundation, 2508 Historic Decatur Road, San Diego, CA 92106

Head over here for more info:

Also, I've never been to San Diego before so I'm excited to explore the city. Anything I should do in the area? Any taco stands I should check out? Let me know!

Un-Road Trip Bloopers!

You didn't think our three days of shooting intros and wrap-arounds were without incident - did you? Rest assured there were plenty of mistakes and accidental swear words and spontaneous singing. And here's the video proof in two parts:

The Last Episode Has Aired!

Well, this is it - the last episode of The Un-Road Trip. Or at least the last episode of the first season. I've got a few thoughts as this chapter of my life comes to a close, but I'll post those in a separate blog. For now, enjoy the finale:

Episode 9 is online!

It's hard to believe that there's only one more episode of the Un-Road Trip before the end of the first season. I make it all the way back to the Pacific NW in episode 9 - less than 200 miles to go till Portland, the end of the Un-Road!

Episode 8 - perhaps my favorite episode - is online!

Don't quote me on this but I think episode 8 may contain more modes of transportation than any other episode of The Un-Road Trip. Don't believe me? Watch below! And if you can prove me wrong then I'll send you something cool. Either way, this episode does include couch bikes, treadmill bikes, and the amazing Brent Curry!

Only two more episode two go! Will I live to see the end of the trip? Hint: I'm alive now.

Episode 7 is online!

When we originally came up with the concept for the Un-Road Trip TV show we had planned to include an animated segment in each episode highlighting some local history or additional information on a mode of transportation. We had a lot of these segments written and/or planned out when we realized that we just didn't have the budget or time to produce these more labor-intensive segments. There was one piece we were especially excited about though and we couldn't bear to to lose it. Somehow Todd, (the producer at Halogen), managed to sneak it into the graphics department and get it animated and you can see it here in the seventh episode of the show. You can't miss it - it airs about 16 minutes into the show.

So what do you think? Do you like it? Do you wish we had one of these in every episode? Let me know and then go bug Halogen to order a second season!
