After our road trip, we found out about a video contest the company Sierra Trading Post was holding. They are best known for their outdoor recreation and adventure gear & clothing.
I created this video with Trey and we won $1500 in gift certificates when we placed as finalists in their “Share Your Adventure” contest. Since then, the video has racked up over 15,000 views online and continues to make people smile.
In April of 2011, we found out about another video contest. This time sponsored by the CVB of Abilene, Texas – a city we passed through on our trip. Trey and I made another road trip video submission and won $500 in their “Visitor” category . You’ll notice the format is very similar to the original, but this one focused on our time in Texas. I like to think of it as a “spin-off” of the first video.
