milliondollarroadtrip

Yet another rare opportunity while living in the middle of nowhere:  Came in for a late breakfast at the GrubShack and the people coming and going were SO GOOD I couldn't leave.  The best locals all seem to arrive just around closing time.  No chance of rain in the near future so I didn't feel a need to get the next water tank in place right away.  We all got pretty excited when a slicked up Airstream travel trailer pulled up with a giant sign that said Million Dollar Road Trip on the side.   Even though they didn't have bags of money for us - we sat around for quite some time hearing about their story.  http://www.milliondollarroadtrip.com/   Seems that my buddy Tom Michael from KRTS Marfa Public Radio suggested that they explore south county and beyond as part of their journey...including a visit to The Field Lab and a chance to meet Benita.  Had a great time giving Walter and Tristan the full tour.  Nice to be a very small part in their mission to help and inspire young entrepreneurs.  Check out their website & Facebook page and keep an eye out for these guys when they come to a city near you.  If you see their rig - say howdy and tell them Benita sent you.  74,92,47,0,B

Those guys are pretty great. They help a local brewery get off the ground. http://jesterkingbrewery.com/blog/?pg=5

I believe "The Field Lab" is becoming the crossroad of the nation..and why not....

The MDRT does not tell me exactly what it is they are inspiring, other than selling ads on their Airstream which is non-inspiring. However it would be nice to see a Benita logo plastered on that shiny aluminum.

I was just surfing around the web and rolled up onto this http://www.revolvermaps.com/?target=home.

A very cool map showing where people are in real time and over time. I would be interested to know where other people are from who look at this blog. I have been following for about a year and know who else is with me, helps widen the community feeling.
