Watched Dave Gorman‘s “America Unchained” documentary this evening. The premise was to go on a coast-to-coast road trip without giving money to “the man”. I’m generally a fan of Dave’s stuff so I was raging to have missed it last month when it was originally aired. I also had an added interest in the fact that I’m undertaking a similar trip (geography wise) in September. A full post is coming on that soon btw.
Anyway, back to the documentary and I have to say I really enjoyed it. I won’t spoil too much of the detail but I’m surprised that he was able to do such a trip. It’s opened my eyes to the amount of small ‘Mom & Pop’ businesses still littered throughout the US and I hope to find a few of them myself. You do have to love a small gas station that will open after a phone call from a local and fill a strangers car up. On a bank holiday. Fantastic. 🙂
