BBQ with the crew (priceless): You and a guest are invited to visit Idaho Springs, hang out on my back deck, share a meal, and meet my heroes from behind-the-scenes of Running on Empty, the crew that saw America one mile at a time, fed me, massaged me, kept me hydrated, and prevented me from becoming roadkill—an unglamorous but incredibly important job.

All items in the Explorer package ($150+): Paul and Layne Cutright's "How to Create Successful Relationships" and never-published, private journal entries from my summit of Mt. Everest.


Cherry-red Tahiti Skyhawk 4-stroke Cruiser ($1,000)—I custom-built this one-of-a-kind motorized bike and used it to prepare for the 2008 transcon, taking it up into the mountains to train. Just this week, I put an all-new engine on it for you.
