#WeekendRoadtrip Travel Logistics

Sadie and Lily's #WeekendRoadTrip Ride

Sadie and Lily thoroughly enjoyed sharing some information about three of their favorite destinations - Graceland, Brazil and the Delmarva Peninsula - during the #WeekendRoadtrip held over the 2009 Memorial Day weekend. We explored Wikipedia articles and Flickr photo streams to showcase some of the best online materials we could find related to these settings.

The event was sponsored by two of our Twitter Anipals, @GD_Kenworth and @Flicka47. They worked to organize the event, and along with many others who served as tourguides, bartenders, DJs, competition hosts, and event MCs, Anipals partied around the world for over 24 hours to raise money for Veteran's K-9 Corps.

Fairmount Dog Stories Tweeples created a map of the global destinations shared by all of the #weekendroadtrip tourguides. An event Wiki was created that shows the entire electronic pawprint of the event. Folks shared photos and videos, stories and adventures throughout the weekend. Perhaps more than previous #pawpawty events, this one truly captured Anipal Twitterpower, since the entire theme was one of connecting global geographic settings for the goal of raising funds for animals in need.

As for Sadie and Lily, they are eager to pull out the Airstream trailer for another adventure in the near future. In the meantime we can be found in the throws of a Rawhide War most any evening on Twitter.
