The Un-Road Trip
Boaz Frankel has led one of those lives that's bound to make plenty of his former high school classmates envious (full disclosure: we were both members of the drama department at Wilson). He's an NYU graduate, he's interviewed Samuel L. Jackson, he once supposedly taught Sarah Silverman how to play dreidel, he's hosted his own talk show, he's interned for The Today Show and he once set a world record for the "most high-fives in an hour" in Pioneer Courthouse Square. Now he's crisscrossing the country on what he's calling an "un-road trip" to help draw awareness to alternative modes of transportation.
Boaz began the trip a few Sundays back with a tandem bike ride with a pre-car wreck/still zipped-up Sam Adams through Waterfront Park. Since then he's traveled on a camel in Albuquerque, a pogo stick in LA and something called a "wine bike" in Chicago.
You can follow his adventures over here on the Un-Road Trip's blog.
