Between May 16 and July 4, 2007 along with my friends Haley, Cindy and my twin brother Rodney I traveled to all 50 U.S. States in only 50 Days. With Rodney and Cindy working behind the camera and Haley and I out front we produced the award winning travel documentary "Welcome to America, 50 States 50 Days" www.50states50days.us.

To to mark the 10th anniversary of the trip Rodney and I will be undertaking a trip to all 50 U.S. States in just 7 days! This time around will not be for a movie but will be for a publicity campaign to promote the 50 States movie as well as my travel website www.welcometoamerica.us and my Welcome to America Passports, www.welcometoamerica.us/passport/index

As we travel through each state I will do a quick interview with people that we meet along the way and post the interviews on social media. As a record of our being in the state we'll have the interviewee sign and date our passports as a witness of our visit. As a thank you we will give them a passport for their own 50 state adventure.

After making our way to Anchorage, Alaska we will start the trip at midnight June 28, 2017. After flying to Portland, Oregon we will drive to all of the contiguous 48 states ending in Las Vegas, Nevada. On July 4, 2017 10 years to the day after flying to Hawaii on the 50 States 50 Days trip we will fly to Honolulu, Hawaii again our 50th state.

Budget breakdown.

$1,500 Gas
$800 airfare
$200 hotels at start and end of the trip
$500 food for 2 people for 14 days (including trip to and from starting and ending points)
$1,000 Car rental

Anything we can raise beyond the basics would go towards other odds and ends, signs for the side of the vehicle, advertising on Facebook and other social media.
