A road trip letter to my son

When your brother-in-law calls and says he’s gonna fly to San Francisco to buy a cool, vintage truck and drive it back down the coast of California and oh yeah, he’s got a list of hip brands on board to donate product for the trip; you say Yes. Not only wanting to, but needing to document the trip for the partnered brands we booked last-minute flights and got onboard. Knowing that many travelogues, especially not of epic portions, often fall flat; we found ourselves sitting on the plane without a plan. The 3 Dads on the trip were all leaving families of both existing kids and newly arrived babies. So while it was hard to leave it seemed only fitting to use the trip as a mouthpiece for a variety of life advice to pass down to the kids. What emerged was a video letter to my son full of love & lessons-learned and a small series of kooky, web videos and a range of still images for the sponsors. That was a fun one!
