Enroute they are required to complete 50 challenges, with the winner getting an epic Chevy sponsored tweetup in their hometown. (You can suggest a challenge here! I Continue reading

Bryan Adams ~ Open Road

Watch the video: Bryan has embedded video disabled. Perhaps he'll realize in the future to let go and let his fans post his music. Afterall, the advertising may sell more CD's thereby providing him more opportunity to hit the open road! Continue reading

On the Road in a Virginia Tunnel

When on a road trip I often take pictures while driving because I want to capture how lucky and free I feel in that exact moment. Continue reading
