We can’t believe that the time has come to finally end our journey on the Best of the Road Rally. It was such an amazing opportunity to be a part of this segment for a second year in a row. We all felt very fortunate to partake in this trip across the country interacting with all the teams and meeting new friends.
Every single person that we met during the road rally truly touched our lives in some way. The bonds that we formed will not be forgotten and we are looking forward to staying connected with everyone.
The crew extends a huge thank you to all of the towns who opened their homes, businesses, and lives to us. We greatly appreciate all of your hospitality.
To all the teams: your hard work, dedication, and love for this project showed through all of your videos, blogs, and stories. America loved interacting with all five teams and sharing your passions for traveling, meeting people, and telling the stories of the small towns that define this country.
We are so sad to see the 2012 Rally come to an end but are already looking forward to next year’s trip!
