We will create twelve video episodes of a semi-fictional hero's quest based on our own two month bike tour throughout Eastern Europe.  These will be hosted on a multi-media blog along with other writing, movies, photo-journalism, songs, and interviews that tell the step-by-step story of the twelve stage hero's quest.  

Rather than following a traditional map and knowing 'where' to go, we'll follow the archetypal adventure and 'how' to go.

The following are the twelve chapters and the projected dates of their publication:

5/22 - Call to Adventure ✓

5/29 - Supernatural Aid

6/10 - First Threshold

6/18 - Belly of the Whale

6/26 - Road of Trials

7/4 - Meeting with the Goddess

7/12 - Atonement with Father

7/20 - Apotheosis

7/28 - Ultimate Boon

8/2 - Magic Flight

8/10 - Return Threshold

8/17 - Master of Two Worlds
