Welcome Home Exhibition

We have secured a location for the welcome home event. It will be at Club Vinyl at 1082 Broadway, 9PM April 17th. We have the whole rooftop available for the exhibition of our video, photos and stories and everyone is invited to come and see it all, meet the crew and see the trucks.

Nels’ Notes: Nomadic Wandering Shenanigans: March 21-28, 2009

We are in the last few days abroad before we cross the border into the United States. Bouey’s quote of the week, puts our situation into a certain perspective.

Keep your eyes on the sky, for us.

By this point there are probably not many that are still in the dark about Mars making its closest appearance to Earth, well basically ever. After recently receiving many emails regarding this celestial phenomena, the first response from the TWBRs was excitement that our vantage point would be ideal in some remote town while on the road.
