31 Days of Jet Travel, 12 Hours between Flights, 2 Friends, 1 Incredible Adventure
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
BUFFALO, NEW YORK — AUGUST 16, 2009 — Clark Dever and Joe DiNardo will take full advantage of JetBlue’s “All-You-Can-Jet” promotion, allowing unlimited ﬂights from September 8th through October 8th. They plan on ﬂying continuously, from city to city, keeping their time on the ground as close to 12 hours as possible.
Clark and Joe have decided to leave their day-jobs as a computer programmer and marketing executive in order to pursue this unique opportunity. The difference with their trip and that of everyday travelers and road-trippers? The pair will document their entire journey using their blog and social media, already with a large fan base growing by the day. Popular websites Twitter (twitter.com) and Facebook (facebook.com) will play a huge role in their journey to interact with their followers throughout the trip.
“I think the greatest part about this adventure is that everyone can be a part of it. We have a Wiki, where viewers in each city can tell us where to go and eat, the must-see attraction, events that are happening while we’re in town, etc. Never has a trip of this magnitude been planned with the help of so many people; we look forward to interacting with our viewers through the blog and twitter. I think it will spur very interesting conversations,” said Clark.
Clark, a professional photographer, will capture and publish photos of the trip as it progresses. They also plan to conduct interviews with passengers and citizens, creating a broad glimpse of America as they travel. These interviews and montages of the country will be uploaded to the blog on a daily basis, giving fans the opportunity to follow Joe & Clark’s adventures as it happens. While on the ground, Joe & Clark will visit as many local attractions as possible to capture the culture of the individual cities; from local architecture and landmarks, to music and nightlife.
“Clark and I have always had the kind of friendship where we peer-pressure each other to do outlandish things. We’ve always competed to have the best stories at the end of the night. I see this as just a natural progression from our usual antics. I really don’t know what will happen, but we both agree that whatever it is, it will be entertaining and worth watching,” said Joe.
“We love the idea that social networking can help two enterprising dudes to launch a project with very little budget, said Clark.
“We’re leveraging our personal networks and the open nature of the internet to access connections that we wouldn’t have otherwise and I think it’s going to turn out really awesome,” said Joe.
In the end, Joe and Clark are two regular guys with an appetite for adventure, who quest for the unusual and the unexpected.
Flight itineraries are being planned and updates can be found at the official website for the project (12hoursinacity.com). Sponsorship opportunities are available.
