WHAT’S YER 20?
Breaker, breaker. 2012 marks our 20th annual Roth and Ramberg calendar. Can you believe we’ve been on the road this long?
Now if you’re old enough to remember the classic trucking movie Smokey and the Bandit then you’ll know “What’s yer 20?” is CB radio trucker-talk for “What’s your location?”
What’s the 20 for the 20th calendar?
Glad you asked, Rubber Ducky. We’re going truckin’. And you’re at the wheel. Starting on Friday, July 6th we’re headin’ on a road trip from Chicago to the world’s largest truckstop in Walcott, Iowa for the Trucker’s Jamboree on July 12-13th. And you’ll steer us to shoot locations along the way.
We’re calling it #tweettrucking. Just like CB radio, everyone on Twitter has a handle (ours is @rothandramberg), so we’ll be asking you for directions on there and on Facebook.
You tweet, we shoot.
Should we go right or left? Do we go through Minooka or Warrenville? How far we drive, where we eat – even random stops – you’re guiding us and we follow your advice and find the photos for our Calendar. We’ll post our ‘20’ using Instamapper, so you can find us no matter how lost we get.
Nobody rides for free.
To thank you for your help, we’re trading tweets for treats, including t-shirts, trucker hats, and even our beautiful CB radio.
So “keep your ears on” to twitter, facebook, and our blog for updates, photos, pie, videos, coffee, pie, PRIZES, more pie, and sweet trucker swag.
And if you don’t want to drive, we still hope you’ll come along for the scenery.
See you on the open road.
Dale & Michele
