Update #20

How the South was won!


Maggie has prevailed!  It has been a long 2 weeks here in Austin, TX for SXSW.  The whole crew, including Maggie, is a little tired and frankly looks a little different.  But the time has come to bid adieu.  So we're off!  Headed to Miami, via Houston and New Orleans and everywhere in between.  From there we will make our way up through the Carolina's, Tennessee, and wherever it is the road, and you guys decide to take us.  So please let us know what your up to.  If you are anywhere in the area described above, or the south east for that matter, please drop us a line so we can try to meet up and get your photos in the project.  Got a party? a fundraiser? a wednesday night at home?  Let us know!  We'd love to see you

Please be sure to follow and "like" our Facebook page.  This is where most of the updates will be along with our RoadTrip Blog over at

Again, please let us know if we are passing through or close to your area.  We would love to see you. Also if you have an event, or would like to plan an event with us for this trip please email   

Thanks again for all of the support!  Hopefully we can wrap up the trip by the end of April and get this book made.
