The Road Warrior

Celebrity RVer had a post recently on celebs who dig their RVs. According to the New York Post’s “Page Six” gossip column, Brad Pitt, Matthew McConaughey, Sean Penn and Colin Farrell all share a passion: trailers. Even Pamela Anderson is getting a custom Airstream trailer built (rumor has it it’ll be called the “Lovestream.” Hmmm).

What’s their trailers of choice? Brad Pitt sports a vintage Airstream 345 he calls the “Luv Sub.” The 35-foot RV was his shack after splitting with Jennifer Aniston. Matt McConaughey, recipient of the Recreational VehicleMattnew McConaughey RVIA Video Still Industry Association’s Spirit of America Award, owns an $80,000 International Ocean Breeze Airstream. Watch McConaughey’s acceptance speech and get the gist of why people RV. It offers “A new backyard every day…I feel like I can be at home wherever I go…”

Among other celebs with RVs? Colin Farrell, who sports a classic $120,000 Airstream on the set. Into The Wild director Sean Penn, who has a Safari Airstream. Then there’s the fair Ms. Anderson.

Then there’s the Zbar family — in our  vintage, 23-foot, 2005 Fleetwood Jamboree. Think Page Six will be writing about us soon…?

Home Office Highway isn’t a contrived road trip made to fake a road warrior’s life. This will be the real thing. As a vendor-sponsored tour and online exhibition, the Tour will showcase products and services that empower today’s remote worker and family. Led by veteran home officer and technology columnist Jeff Zbar, the Tour will reveal in very real terms how technology makes working and playing from the road productive – and fun.

WHERE VOCATION MEETS VACATION
Home Office Highway will be housed in a 28-foot recreational vehicle outfitted with the latest technology on the inside – and sponsor logos on the outside. Within the vehicle will be a fully functional remote office. Sponsor-supplied products will include those common to any home office or small business (laptop PCs, multifunction printer / fax / scanner / copier, battery back-up, external data storage, various USB accessories, PC security devices, PDA/wireless phones, global positioning satellite (GPS) devices, digital cameras, wireless routers / networking equipment, Bluetooth devices, laptop cases, organizational tools, etc.).

Scheduled for Summer 2008, Jeff and his family will pack their belongings – and his home office, and set off in an RV to explore the open road. Over one month, they will:

- Drive highly trafficked roads; visit popular destinations, theme and national parks, and beachfront sites; camp and live as a family – and create an undeniable “Wow!” factor everywhere they go.

- Connect via multiple laptops working on the latest wireless broadband service and linked by a wireless network.

- File dispatches, blogs and Webcam videologues to show how productive and connected a true “road warrior” – and his family – can be from the road.

- Visit sponsor locations to meet and discuss with consumers and media how sponsor products and services can improve productivity.

DESTINATIONS / MARKETS
Summertime on the highway can be a marketer’s bonanza. The Tour will log 3,000 miles during the peak summer travel season, traveling From Miami through Orlando, Georgia, the Carolinas, Virginia, Washington, D.C., the New York/Tri-State metro area and New England.
