My SXSW Keynote

The last couple of years I've been hearing a LOT about SXSW (South by SouthWest), the gianormous Music, Film and Interactive festivals that take place each spring in Austin, TX.

The Midlife Road Trip producers said that everybody who was anybody would be at SXSW.   So I, along with our hardworking cameraman, Ryan Cavanaugh, a.k.a. "The Dude",  ventured into Austin to see what all the hpye was about.

 The Dude, himself, doing what he does best.

AZ on the Rocks

The Midlife Road Trip show stopped by AZ on the Rocks in Scottsdale, Arizona for a little team building exercise with our Phoenix Ambassador, Andi Barness.

One of the great things about social media is meeting so many awesome people from all parts of the world. We met and became friends with Andi on Twitter. She was so incredibly helpful in hooking us up with all the cool things to do and great places to eat in the Phoenix area, and she was a blast to hang out with.  She and I raced to the top (You'll have to watch the video below to see who won). She also turned us on to Bryan's Black Mountain Barbecue in Cave Creek, AZ - some of the best BBQ west of the Mississippi!

If you ever plan to do much traveling I strongly encourage you to get involved with Facebook and Twitter and make some friends who can show you their neck of the world better than guide book or travelogue.

Who'd-a thunk that fried eggs on BBQ could be so good?
