Friends! Backers! Countrymen!
Yesterday, October 18, 2012, SparkTruck pulled into the courtyard of the Design Loft on the campus of Stanford University. Its odometer reads 15,323 miles more than it did on June 26, when we first left the Bay Area.
Between then and now, we've visited over 65 schools, libraries, museums, and community centers, and run workshops with over 2,000 kids. We've driven through deserts, forests, and urban jungles, on cobblestones, fields, and interstate highways. We've been to New England in the peak of autumn colors and Houston in the peak of summer heat. And miraculously no one died. (We won't speak of the thousands of bugs we've collected on the windshield in four months.)
Along the way, we've been blogging, and we just posted our last blog from the road at www.sparktruck.org. We've also amassed quite a collection of photos for your viewing pleasure at www.flickr.com/sparktruck. Thanks to all of you who've been graciously sending us your witty commentary about all of these.
By now, most you should have received your Kickstarter backer rewards. We hope you like them!
And now, after we take a series of long and restorative naps, we've still got some work ahead of us: Didi is getting busy watching hundreds of hours of footage and editing the documentary, while the rest of us figure out how to hand off the project and make SparkTruck an ongoing, student-run initiative at Stanford and beyond.
Thank you so much for your support. None of it would have happened without every single one of you.
We hope you all stay in touch as we we figure out how the next chapter unfolds.
