FOR THOSE OF YOU THAT WE'VE MET ON THE ROAD, OR ANYONE WHO JUST HAPPENS TO DISCOVER THIS PAGE, WE WANT TO GIVE YOU THE BACK STORY ON THIS PROJECT.
ORIGINALLY, WE SET OUT TO FILM A DOCUMENTARY ABOUT A TOURING MUSICIAN TRAVELING WITH HIS DOG ACROSS THE U.S. AND WE HAD PLANNED TO RIDE ALONG WITH HIM AS HE DROVE CITY TO CITY PLAYING SHOWS ALL ACROSS THE WEST COAST. WE HAD A SUCCESSFUL GOFUNDME TO FUND THE PROJECT AND FLEW OUT ON MAY 31, 2018 TO BEGIN FILMING THE JOURNEY. THE FIRST DAY WAS GOING GREAT AND WE WERE CAPTURING AWESOME CONTENT UNTIL IT FELL APART DRAMATICALLY THAT NIGHT DURING/AFTER THE PERFORMANCE AT HIS FIRST LOCATION. HE HAD A MELT DOWN AND PRESENTED HIS TRUE COLORS AS SOMEONE WHO IS UNTRUSTWORTHY, HATEFUL, GREEDY, AND VOLATILE. WE DETERMINED IN THAT MOMENT THAT WE HAD TO PULL OUT OF THIS PROJECT FOR OUR SAFETY AND THIS LEFT US STUCK IN SPOKANE, WA WITHOUT A WAY HOME. WE TRIED TO CHANGE OUR PLANE TICKETS, WHICH WERE INTENDED FOR JUNE 17 OUT OF AUSTIN, TX, BUT WE COULDN'T WITHOUT SPENDING AN ADDITIONAL $1200. SO WE DECIDED TO MAKE THE MOST OF THIS SITUATION AND TURN IT INTO OUR OWN ADVENTURE. SO WE RENTED A CAR AND SET OUT TO DRIVE OURSELVES BACK TO NORTH CAROLINA; A JOURNEY ACROSS AMERICA.
SO THIS IS THE NEW STORY; OUR JOURNEY HOME AND THE ADVENTURE OF A LIFETIME.

WE FINALLY MADE IT HOME SAFELY AFTER 13 DAYS OF TRAVELING FROM THE WEST COAST ACROSS SOME OF THE MOST BEAUTIFUL LANDSCAPES AND some truly ENTERTAINING CITIES THAT I COULD HAVE NEVER EVEN IMAGINED experiencing. WE TOOK the UNEXPECTED AND tumultuous situation and, instead of heading home defeated and unfulfilled, we made lemonade our of the lemons we were given by throwing caution to the wind and thrusting ourselves into a spur of the moment cross country road trip. this is certainly not what i set out to capture or to experience. even given the circumstances, i still think that the original documentary would have been killer. that musician has so much talent and it's a shame that things went the way they did. i feel confident that i'll produce an equally entertaining documentary for everyone to enjoy. i hope to show our experience of a drastic change in plans and how to make the most out of every moment.
