We were on TV!

Apparently, Josh works at a local Michigan TV station called WZZM and a colleague of his, Stephanie, wanted to do a small story on us and we agreed. What we didn’t know was what to expect as we did the interview about 10 minutes after waking up and with bright lights on our faces. I’m thinking “deer in headlights”….

Check out the clip on the station’s site:

We left for Chicago on the evening of Friday June 4th and made it there around 10 at night after catching some good draft off trailers that overtook us. This shoots our highway cruising speed through the roof (literally!) from 60mph to 70 mph!!!! Def. proud of Jamhuri to pull that off.

Think of it as a modern interpretation of God Speed and Good Winds!

    We saw this on your FaceBook page! We were cheering! Makes sense to me they wanted to do a story – Camille and I have been bragging about you guys (with a healthy dollop of envy) for weeks.

    Also, no deer in headlights – you guys were great, very natural. Time to get your own reality TV show – TLC on line 2!

    Haha… I can’t believe they put on TV. You’re probably famous in Michigan.
