The World Needs More Whimsy Grand Tour

The Big Banana Car has been on the road since 2011 and in that time has driven all over the United States.

 

In 2018 it embarked upon the World Needs More Whimsy Grand Tour  and has driven coast to coast and north to south.

 

The map below shows its travels since departing Santa Monica on April 11 2018

States Visited

The lonely road between Wickenburg and Vulture City in the Sonoran desert.

Vulture city is a ghost town that was once the most productive gold mine in Arizona. I didn't do any prospecting but I certainly enjoyed the dramatic desert landscape replete with many towering saguaro cacti.

Chase Bank used the Big Banana Car for a TV commercial. It was filmed outside Corkys on Van Nuys Boulevard in Sherman Oaks.

The southernmost point of the contiguous lower 48 states is in Key West.

Louisville, Kentucky

Flint Michigan

Las Cruces New Mexico

Route 66 in Tulsa Oklahoma.

With the LL Bean Boot can in Center Vally Pennsylvania.

The Barton Springs area of Austin Texas.

and many, many more

Host The Big Banana Car

I am couchsurfing my way around America and am staying with friends, friends of friends or people I meet on the road.

 

I am looking for people to host me anywhere and everywhere and in return I would be happy to take your family and friends for rides around your town in the banana car.

 

If you are able to host me and the Big Banana Car please enter your details here.

 

Thank you.
