Two For the Road- Big Bend
« on: May 22, 2018, 06:11:25 AM »
Woke up this morning and flipped on the TV to watch the news and saw the latest episode of Two For the Road and it was on Big Bend.  Pretty good job on covering a lot of the area including Alpine and Big Bend Brewing, Far Flung adventures and some in the State Park, crossing to Boquillas, Rafting Santa Elena and some more.  I guess look for it on PBS.

Hey guys! Nik and Dusty from Two for the Road here. Thanks for the kind words about the show! We've lived here in Texas our entire lives and this was our first trip to Big Bend, and we absolutely fell in love with the place (in fact we've been back already since we filmed the episode last fall). The episode has been playing on many PBS stations around the country since January, but it will actually premiere nationwide TONIGHT (May 22, 2018) on a PBS-affiliated channel called Create TV! Check your local listings, because Create is available in almost 90 percent of the country. (Although as luck would have it, it is NOT available in the Big Bend area itself. Figures.)
If you don't get to see it on air, the show will be available online on our website (www.twofortheroad.c om) in a couple of months.
Thanks again, and let us know what y'all think!
Cheers
Nik and Dusty Green

I just saw you were in Ushuaia in episode 1.
One of my bucket lists items is to drive from here down there and back. (Or maybe just ship my vehicle back).
Pretty darn cool!
