Welcome to Traipsathon.
“We Specialize in What We Do.”
Traipsathon Solutions Inc., a completely legitimate business, is the means by which intermittently-employed pseudojournalist Joe Rhodes wanders North America, occasionally looking for stories but mostly having no idea what he is doing. He plans to continue doing this until he is done.
On this website, you will find :
Dispatches from The Traipsemobile, Traipsathon’s mobile command center, along with links to occasional actual stories written for actual publications. Mostly, though, it’s incoherent rambling from life on the road.. If you want to start at the beginning, go here: The Starting Line.
Traipsetracks, songs of the day that reflect the Traipsemobile’s location, the state of the world, or that we just like the damn song .
This page will always have a map telling you where the Traipsathon is operating that day and what the weather is like. If you want to know where The Traipsemobile is in real time, more or less, go here.
There is also a listing of our latest Tweets including updates of where we happen to be at that moment, at least until the authorities arrive. This is your best bet for up-to-the-minute status reports on The Traipsathon’s location (including Foursquare check-ins) and our generally-muddled state of mind.
We welcome your comments, your suggestions and your funding ideas. Enjoy the ride.
