Are you really crisscrossing the United States with no planned route... just to interview strangers about how to live a good life?
Dang! This one's easy. Yes.
Not only that -- but I'll make a new episode of TGoUS every week and post it online!
Okay, fancy... what's your actual deal towing an Airstream with a Porsche? Can it even tow? Isn't that pretentious? Why not buy a big truck?
Totally relevant question! Let's be real though. How awesome do they look together? I bought my Porsche Cayenne about 6 months before deciding to quit my job, live in an Airstream, and travel around talking to strangers.
I debated whether I needed to trade her in for a big super-duty truck, but that seemed like a waste of money, resources, and a perfectly good Porsche. Then, I saw this video of a Cayenne towing an Airbus. Turns out, she's a real beast and tows our home on wheels like a freakin' dream. Case closed.
How'd you decide on an Airstream for the TGoUS house on wheels?
There was never another option. There's something about an Airstream... it's
more than a house on wheels -- it's quite easy to feel at home. TGoUS is about sharing our truth, and being honest and optimistic about life. Home is never something I felt as a kid. I grew up in an abusive environment, and my search for clarity has a lot to do with why I decided to make this show.
The Airstream I chose for TGoUS has already empowered me and taught me I'm capable of a lot. I promise I am not sponsored by Airstream. Just a fan. :)
How will your associate producers Wilma and Buddy adapt to a full time life on the road? Are you equipped to care for them?
Here's a pic of W&B roughing it in the Airstream during a stop in Phoenix.
At my busiest as a full-time TV reporter, I was working some crazy 50-60 hour weeks. These guys were chillin' at home for a lot of their lives. Now, they get to come to work with me. I produce TGoUS all by myself, and most of it happens in the car, or in the trailer, so they're always around! Plus, they get to pee on every state in America. We may be busy... but they don't really know that. Life's one big car ride now.
The Greatest of US, huh?
What's that supposed to mean?
There's something great in almost all of us.
As a reporter, I learned that quickly. Never judge a book by its cover, and never rule anyone out.
As we move through life, we're going to need help and we're going to need advice. Sometimes the best lessons come from strangers -- from neighbors we never knew we had. The way I see it, everyone of us -- each in our own way -- can be the greatest part of this big 'ol country we live in. The show is about us -- The Greatest of US!
We're REALLY worried about you... it's a great idea and the first episode is amzaballs beyond belief, but how are you going to make any money doing this?
OMG really glad you asked!
I'm really stoked about the show
and the message behind it. Because I believe it's something we need in our lives, I was willing to quit my job and take on a bunch of debt to make it. It's honestly terrifying, but I had to try.
The show is free to you. But the best thing you can do to support it is subscribe to the YouTube channel, tell your friends and ask them to watch and follow us too!
