Day One: FLIGHT!

It's the first day of travel for the Dan 3.0 road trip!

Our first day, however, involved mostly airports and planes instead of roads and cars. We needed to get out of Lincoln, Nebraska in order to position ourselves at the start of the road trip route, Los Angeles!

Our day began with stressful amounts of packing and planning. However, the stress evaporated once our bags were neatly packed and set by the front door.

After packing we set off to the drug store. We stocked up on some basic over the counter medications, and in order to protect ourselves from catching the flu and/or passing the flu onto everyone we will meet, we got flu shots.

With adventure in our hearts and flu infested eggs in our veins we took a short ride to the Lincoln Municipal Airport to catch our first flight.


From Lincoln, we flew to Denver, Colorado to catch a connecting flight to the Los Angeles International Airport.


And on that flight, the exhaustion of the day hit our hero.



I hope everyone in the LA area is as excited as me for the gathering on Saturday! We have a location!

The Griffith Observatory is a this badass museum/observatory/hang out spot in Griffith Park in Los Angeles. We'll be meeting on the front lawn of the observatory at 2pm Pacific Time! We'll probably be hanging out until 5ish or when we start getting super hungry.

Dan and I went in July after VidCon with his brother Adam. It was WONDERFUL! I don't know how it will be this time of year, but I loved it in July. We also ran into Jonny Paula, Jory Caron, and Riley McIlwain of "Is it A Good Idea to Microwave This." Jon recorded it and made a video on his personal channel.

AWESOME! I'll see some of you Saturday and I'll be blogging again tomorrow!

A part of me wishes I could be at every single one of your gatherings in all the different locations, but because of real life, I'm settling with waiting till you get to Chicago.

Dan, I'm sad. I wanted this trip to be great. I wanted to enjoy what you're doing. But michael aranda is one of my favorite youtubers, and I can't stand for what you did. Now, I need to know where the decision engine is, so i can submit the "apologize to michael and MEAN IT" task, if you won't do it yourself. Because I know that we're supposed to have complete control of your life, but i don't know who told you that we're supposed to tell you not to break contracts and disrespect friends.

pogo tribe - hate me all you want. i too am a member of your ranks. but I just don't understand why our beloved Dan acted so immaturely to a partner in a project, if not a friend. And if Dan cannot professionally own up to his behavior - like he'll have to do in the real world, with a real job, once companies stop paying him to do random stuff we tell him to do - then he has lost any respect I once had.

Stand up, pogo tribe. we are better than this. All of us. But the members of a tribe are subject to judgment by others based on the tribe leader. If our "tribe leader" cannot show some maturity, and apologize to michael, as well as pay him the way he was supposed to, then I will no longer be a part of this tribe.

This is your warning, dan. I have found many many others that agree with me on this. You have the next few days to fix this. Good luck, and may you make the right choice.
