AmandaAcrossAmerica launches on Tuesday.

The party last night in NYC was off the chain. We planned it in 48 hours--maybe even less-- and it was a huge success.

Thanks so much to for sponsoring the event and for hosting the party, and the trip. :) It was super amazing to see everyone... Heather Green, Kevin Chapados, Kenyatta Cheese... I hadn't seen you guys in a awesome to chat... and then THE BIGGEST SURPRISE.... Casey & Rudy and Steve & Carol came all the way down from Montreal and Boston!! I was so shocked!! Thanks also to Joe Cascio for traveling from southeastern took some great pics, so did Steve Garfield!

Check out the ovlov photostream as well.... and the flashmeeting. Thanks to Markus Sandy for setting that up!

Dina Kaplan caught part of my announcement, thanks Dina! Here's Steve's take:

    What a blast - wish I could've been there!
    (I hung out in the Flash meeting a bit later on.)

    I'm so excited for your cross-country adventure.

    Wow... this must be the big announcement, eh?

    I wish there were more details, but I have a couple of questions...

    What kind of hybrid vehicle will you be using? Prius? A special do-it-yourself-hybrid van?

    What is the trip about? Spreading a message? Learning about the different parts of the country? Meeting quirky characters?

    And...You will visit Kansas City, right? RIGHT?

    I can't wait to see the results.
    I still don't really understand what this new project is, but it sounds somewhat similar to a local show in KC called "Rare Visions and Roadside Revelations". You might give this a look...

    Anyway, This sounds like so much fun!

    Wow, great idea....Steinbeck meets the Monkees. She may come to your town.

    I look forward to these reports.

    Looks like it's the Ford Escape Hybrid.

    This is going to be great!

    Woo-Hoo! We're going on a road trip with Amanda!! :-)

  • At 7:22 AM, Blogger Steve Garfield said…

    That was so much fun!

    Here's another video perspective of your announcement.

    See you on the road? ;-)

    Wow, that's some support. Rudy and Casey all that way and Steve/Carol ditto. (I thought that looked like them in the pics)

    You looked beautiful in that dress.

    So is this like that Rodger Karult (?spelling) in the early 60s traveling across the country talking to people and broadcasting his experience of America?? You certainly are quintessentially American, so that would be a great fit.

    Few details, much fun.

    As you said in the vid, Party On!

    Thanks for having Alyssa and I. It was great to see you and Mario again. Hope you guys have a great trip.

    Would be great if you'd come up to Canada while you're at it... you know... ;)

  • At 3:47 PM, Blogger Steve Woolf said…

    Now that I'm in California, I can say it -- I'm *stoked* for your trip across America. Best part is, we all come along for the ride and you wind up in the land of sunshine when it's all said and done. Drinks are on us when it's all over...

    I was so bummed about Saturday; I couldn't be there virtually because of work.

    BUT I'm waaaay stoked about your road trip! I was supposed to drive LA to NY last winter but it didn't work out, so now I can live vicariously through you. I know it'll be an awesome project. Can't wait till you're here, Amanda. :)

  • At 10:49 PM, Blogger Kim said…

    Best of Luck on the new adventure!! We look forward to being along for the ride. :)

  • At 9:40 PM, Blogger Mike said…
