After our wonderful test shoot last week, we've assembled our final to-do lists before hitting the road for the full 60-day journey on June 15th. We submitted our last grant application two days ago, got giant magnets made for the car, received our order of 120 teddy bears to leave as thank-you gifts for the people we stay with, and we've got business cards and thank-you stationery on the way.

Sarah's in Italy right now, and I'm trying to balance three projects at once before committing to "American Bear" 24/7. But we've got four hours of footage from our test shoot just begging to be edited into something fun, so check back soon for some kind of trailer, music video, or video story from our experiences.
