One for the Road: Day One Recap

Posted on in Blog

I’m typing this blog from my hotel room in Ann Arbor. We’re going to set up shop today at Gallup Park from 11am to 6pm, so if you’re in the area, please stop in and see us for free online marketing consultations – no strings attached.

Yesterday was a long drive, but thanks to our technology staff, I was able to be online the entire time. And that means I have pictures and videos to share with you.

As you can see the motor home was able to handle five of us online, working and tweeting away. And we also had a little bit of fun on the road. From bubble gum blowing contests to beef jerky and buy one get one corn nuts, there wasn’t a dull moment.

In fact, the only real snag I’ve hit so far has been the coffee pot in my hotel room. But even that turned out okay in the end (I’m sipping on coffee as I write this).

I do want to take a moment to thank everyone who came out yesterday for our kickoff ceremony. Traverse City Chamber President Doug Luciani, Traverse City Mayor Michael Estes and Rep. Dan Scripps all said a few words (all nice of course), Fast Signs donated a breakaway banner and the Traverse City Chamber let us borrow their giant scissors for an official ribbon cutting. The rain held out (phew!). Let’s hope we have the same luck today in Ann Arbor.

If you can’t come out and see us today in Gallup Park or at one of our stops in Lansing, Grand Rapids and Traverse City, don’t forget we’ve setup a hotline you can call at 877.833.0667.
