While in Albuquerque for 24 hours, Frankel will add a camel ride to his list at the Rio Grande Zoo on Wednesday, April 29th at 2pm.
“I'll certainly achieve a "greener" trip by avoiding the favored mode of transportation, (and hopefully discover some interesting alternative modes of transit), but I also think it will thrust me into unique situations and introduce me to people and places that the standard road-tripper would simply drive past,” Frankel said.
Through www.unroadtrip.com, people are able to follow the trip in real-time and interact with the journey; suggesting modes of transportation or offering a couch to sleep on.
“Albuquerque is a recognized leader in environmentally friendly practices and proud to be selected as a stop on Frankel’s Un-Road Trip. We look forward to word spreading of Albuquerque’s green efforts due to his programs,” said Dale Lockett, Visit Albuquerque president/CEO.
Frankel will be available for interviews at the Rio Grande Zoo at 2pm on Wednesday. Please contact him directly with any questions or visit www.unroadtrip.com for details.
