Fredericksburg Wine Tour

FredWineTourFeatured

We had a great time on our recent bus trip through part of the Fredericksburg Wine Country. Big thank to Ernie and his team at the Fredericksburg Convention and Visitors Bureau for helping to set this up. Everyone had a great time sampling wine, eating great food and visiting the Nimitz museum as well. Thanks to all the places we stopped along the way:

Fredericksburg is a great place to visit with plenty to do for everyone. For more ideas on where to go, check out our Fredericksburg episode.

Team Daytripper – MS 150

DTMS150_featured

Hey Daytrippers, tomorrow is the MS 150 and Team Daytripper is riding again! This is a fun event for a great cause. There will be a group of over 12,000 riders biking from Houston to Austin over 2 days. This is an incredible opportunity to be a part of finding a cure for Multiple Sclerosis.

Until just a couple years ago, multiple sclerosis (“MS”) was a completely foreign disease to me.  However, I have been blessed with a brother-in-law and one of our producer’s wife who suffer from MS.  I have seen the daily effects and am honored to stand beside them in finding a life-saving cure.  The research is closer than ever and we can all be a part of it.  I’m also proud to say that my brother-in-law will again be riding with our team, which has doubled in size from last year!

This is going to be a fun event. If you are in the Houston area, we’d love to have you at one of the starting points to cheer the riders on as we start our journey. The ride kicks off in 3 locations - Tully Stadium in Houston, TX, Rhodes Stadium in Katy, TX and Waller Stadium in Waller, TX. If you are in the Austin area, we’d love to have you join us at the finish line to celebrate. We will arrive in Austin next to the Texas State Capitol. Events will be held there and the Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum. Come on out and be a part of the celebration.

In addition to coming out for the event, please consider supporting my team on this ride, or anyone else you know that is riding. It’s going to be an EPIC year for the MS150 and I want you to be a part of it.

Thank you for your support and encouragement!

Teaching Texas History through Hats

http://www.toddwhite.org

Recently I had the opportunity to be a part of Texas day at the school at First Baptist Church in Georgetown. It was a day focused on all things Texas and obviously I was excited! The settlers of Texas wore many hats and each left their mark on this great state. What better way to teach Texas history to a group of kids than to get them involved in wearing some of the hats of our settlers. From Native Americans to Pirates to Germans to the classic Cowboy…we explored the heritage of Texas…Daytripper style.

The Daytripper Texas Film Series – Secondhand Lions – Feb 1 at 1pm

DTEpisode_FilmFestFeature

SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT:  Writer/Director Tim McCanlies will be in attendance.  He’ll share some stories about making movies in Texas and what it was like to work with the likes of Hollywood greats like Robert Duvall and Michael Caine.  This is going to be a very special afternoon.  I can’t wait to see you guys there.

We always thought it would be fun to get folks together in a historic Texas theater and watch movies made here in the Lone Star State.  Well, that dream is becoming reality.  And the first film to kick it off will be Secondhand Lions shown in the historic Georgetown Palace.

So join me and crew on FEBRUARY 1, 2014 at 1pm to watch this family classic.  Filmed in the Greater-Austin area, this film is about a young boy (Haley Joel Osment) who is left with his eccentric and supposedly wealthy uncles (Robert Duvall and Michael Caine) on their Texas farm.  This begrudging relationship blossoms as the boy learns his uncles’ quirky ways and the truth about how they came upon their hidden millions.

Join Me on a BBQ Tour!
