Road Trip USA: An Evening in Burlington with Vermont Public Television

On Monday evening, I enjoyed a warm welcome in Burlington, Vermont. All over the country, community public television stations like Vermont Public Television are working to stay strong in their mission of keeping one non-commercial spot on the dial healthy. Here you’ll see a few photos from VPT’s Facebook page. It shows the fun I’m having each night as I continue my Road Trip USA 2013.

As you can see from these shots, each stop includes a quick tour of the town; a dinner with special supporters; a big and enthusiastic crowd, generally in a classic old-time theater; and then a meet-and-greet time afterwards. Personally, to meet with so many enthusiastic fans of our shows and travelers who have enjoyed our guidebooks supercharges my teaching battery. I’ll share a rundown on the last half of my road trip in a couple of days. Right now, I’m off to Cleveland, where tonight I speak to a sold-out crowd of almost 1,200.

Happy travels, and thanks to everyone for supporting public television in their communities.
