|From photo shoot|
There are many good things happening and in the works.
Phase 1 is completed-Blog and Facebook fans page creation. Announcing the expedition. First photo shoot. Information gathering and strategic relationships with people who know the W3R-NHT.
We created a logo with the help of Bonnie Boyles and Kevin Ryland. This is the initial logo.
we had a successful photo shoot last week with Dave Fagerberg, a 18th century reenactor. Theme was past meeting the present-it was alot of fun and got some great pictures for marketing from it.
Joe Dibello, with the National Park Service, the superintendent of the Washington-Rochambeau Revolutionary Route has officially become a partner of the expedition. Joe will ride with us part way when we get to Philidelphia.
W3R Association is also working in partnership with the expedition, along with Robert Selig who is now the expedition historian.
This week the Adventure Cycling Association will be considering us for a partnership program...we hope to get the opportunity to work with them.
Yay! Arkel is now an official gear sponsor of the expedition. I have been working with Joe Kurmaskie with Arkel. We are excited to have Arkel with us!!!
Besides needing funding to pay for expenses; team member travel, food, gear not donated, emergency fund, occasional lodging, etc.
I have a wish list of things that are needed that you may have and are able to donate.
And things we need now to document trip:
Good digital camera-10+ pixels
back up laptop.
Well, I think that is it for now. Please help us if you can. This is a big deal and I want you to be a part of it. And we need your help.
Every bit helps.
Any ideas and thoughts are alway welcomed!
