Back to Florida?

Right now it's looking like I'll probably wait until mid or late February to hit the road again. That'll give me more time to work on posting as much video as possible, plus it should mean I'll be able to stay on the road for 4 months, rather than just 2 months.

I was thinking about heading toward southern California/Arizona next, but I'm starting to consider going back to Florida, partly to see if I can handle Florida now that I'm a little more experienced at this stuff. The one thing I know for sure is that I'll be going south for winter/spring 2008.

It's starting to frustrate me that I've been unable to attract any collaborators/sponsors. Not because I need them to make me feel important or anything like that, but because I know how much incredible footage would exist right now if I only had a crew around every once in a while (in addition to higher quality equipment).

In all honestly, I know Aimless would be 100 times more entertaining than most of the crap on TV if only I had some backing. I don't even want anyone to make it easier for me when things get unbearably tough. I just want someone to recognize the potential of this project and assist me in achieving that potential.

All I know is that if HBO or A&E or the Travel Channel had come up with this idea, it would already be on TV and it would be making them a lot of money, assuming they could actually find someone with enough balls to do what I do.

Good idea. It is time for me to start putting out your web address again. My first stop was the Travel Channel. I explained to them what you are doing and suggested some kind of sponsorship or exposure to your website.

Good luck on your next adventure!

Brad, I hope you realize how much I appreciate your enthusiasm and your attempts to help me with Aimless. Honestly, I can't believe I haven't managed to totally alienate you or the rest of the people I've had on my side. (OK, I probably have alienated the rest of them.)

Anyway, I just want you to know it means a lot to me, especially considering I haven't even seen you in at least ten years. And if I somehow manage to make something of myself through Aimless, you can bet it's all going to come back to you ...and then some.

Thanks, Brad. You rock.

You are VERY welcome.Since it is not possible for me to see the counrty and meet all these people, I love that you are doing this.

Thank you!
