There are almost as many ways to travel as there are travelers but few as odd as this one. Over the part year Alex has driven over 40,000 miles over 25 states all in the name of a little marketing. No, the mobile does not serve up hotdogs (Alex gets that a lot). But they do give away whistles and this makes a lot of people smile.
There are actually six Weiner Mobiles traveling the U.S. They are driven mostly by recent college grads who do it for a year. They are but a select few who, per Alex, number less than the total amount of people who have visited space (if you include Cosmonauts in the total). And lucky for us Alex is our neighbor’s and good friends niece, thus the surprise celebrity visit. For just one magical night a childhood wish came true.
