Total Distance for today: 40 miles
Total Distance for Tour: approx. 788 miles
LOCATION: Cowpens, SC (but sleeping in Spartanburg)
STATUS: Hanging out with Couchsurfing friends and discussing why I should be on the Colbert Report

My Couchsurfing host, Greg, suggested that I try to get on the “Colbert Report,” as this is something he would definitely eat up! Checkout the Colbert Nation website. He’s practically carrying my flag already!

  • Hi Austin,

    Good idea about Colbert, but I don’t see from his Facebook page how to actually make a “request”. What is the best way to do so?

    Happy skating,

    • Rob,

      Sorry for late response on this comment. With facebook, you’d just have to leave a comment saying that you wanted to see the “Freedom Skater” on Colbert Report. You could leave a link to either the website or the facebook page:

      It sounds like things are really moving a long with Simfo now. Good to hear! I’m very interested to see how that plays out in the long-term.

      – Austin
