Rachel and a Bus Trailer – Cute, Concise and Catchy

Why did I not post this video two years ago, when it was a little more relevant?

Probably because I was a lazy-arsed slacker, that’s why.

If anyone out there at Discovery, TLC or PBS wants to make this into a real series with me, just say the word and a beautifully polished proposal is in your mail box, ready for shinier, bigger adventures.

See the series here (minus the end shorts that got filmed but lost).

Rachel and Bus

Although insecurities abound, I am about to post my first introductory video blog (I prefer to call them “micro-docs”, because it sounds less like I’m an A.D.D. preteen with a cam-quarter and a hanging sheet).

Tonight I’m heading out on a Greyhound bus.  I’m about to purchase a Greyhound Discovery Pass, which, for $500, will let me get on and off anywhere in North America for two months, except for Alaska and Newfoundland.  While I realize Newfoundland is in the ocean, I’m not sure why they exclude Alaska.

I’ll be trying to “micro-document” every day of my trip, but don’t expect to see those videos for some time.  I want to be able to upload them consistently, and I can’t count on having wi-fi everywhere I go.  To avoid the stress of expectations (even if they’re only my own expectations), I’m going to hold off on the uploads until I can do it daily.  Which means they might not start flowing in for two months.

Enjoy. …I hope for future blogs to not be nearly as cheesy.  My eyebrows seem to have a mind of their own.

The beginning of this trip is dedicated to friend and fellow adventure seeker, Paul Quarrington, who went on his final adventure Jan 21, 2010. Here’s to the next chapter, Q-Tip.
