    "How Does She Do That?" Mystery Solved

    You’ll receive a private link to stream a video compilation showing a week on the road with me. It will be from this trip you are supporting. What will happen? Many mysteries will be solved: How does she lift that van roof up? How long does it take to set up two cameras, lights and microphones? Where does she plug in her Vita-Mix? Does she still recycle?
    The T-shirt only ships to the USA and Canada.

    Meet for Coffee and Vanagon Tour

    I will make coffee or tea for us and we will sit by my Vanagon during the trip supported by you. We’ll talk about the film and around the mysterious question. I’ll give you an hour to try to pry it out of me, but I will instead entertain you with stories of how I meet interviewees and how I travel in the van. To meet in person, the location must be in or around the cities of New York, Boston, Toronto, or San Francisco. If we can’t meet in person, we can meet and chat via Facetime or Skype and I will give you a virtual tour of the Vanagon.

    Breakfast cooked in my Vanagon

    I will cook breakfast for you and two others on my VW Vanagon’s two-burner stove during the trip supported by you. I’ll flip pancakes or eggs, cook oatmeal or make it raw and green to distract you from the mystery of the question. I will make you laugh with stories from the road and how I stumble sometimes in my attempts to meet interviewees. The location must be in the parts of the USA and Canada where I am traveling next - basically, north and east from Tennessee to Nova Scotia, perhaps 200 miles north into Canada. T-shirts, thanks and the Mystery Lover link for each of the three of you. If you want to add other guests, $100 each for food, laughter and a T-shirt.

    Become an Interviewee!

    Yes! I am offering to interview you (which means you will learn the question!) during this trip you are supporting. I will come to your home and interview you (or someone of your choosing!) for the film and website. Be advised – you may or may not be in the final film – just like all the other interviewees! After the interview, the person interviewed will be sworn to secrecy with a special ceremony in front of their loved ones. The location for the interview must be in the parts of the USA and Canada where I will be traveling on this trip - basically, north and east from Tennessee to Nova Scotia, perhaps 200 miles north into Canada. Other travel arrangements would be at an additional cost.
