What is American Odyssey?

Map of our Route - 101 Days Around America: West SideAmerican Odyssey is a journey through America in the new millennium. Ken and Julie will be traveling the country documenting, sharing, connecting and exploring America. We are looking for the most amazing places, outrageous events, and of course the most interesting people from all corners of this giant country.

The idea for this trip came over a decade ago. After Ken finished college he wanted to take off on a road trip and see the country. Well, as luck would have it, he took off on a road trip, but instead of traveling in the USA, he ended up driving through Central America, ending up in Costa Rica, where he lived and worked for a year before moving off to Japan where he met Julie while teaching English in Tokyo. After years of circling the globe, Ken and Julie are finally ready to tackle America.

And now technology has progressed to the point that we can run a media studio out of an RV; video, photos, blogs, and tweets, this is a new media road trip, where we’ll be sharing as we go on our odyssey.

We are looking for the heart of America, and we are always open for suggestions.
