2001 in 2001 News Coverage

If you see a news article or coverage regarding this trip, please let us know as we would like to obtain actual hard copy clippings for a family scrapbook. Thanks!
  • Two local TV stations in Wisonsin tracked down Ken and crew for interviews. Both stations were kind enough to provide copies of the footage, which we have digitized for you. By clicking here you can view the mpeg compressed version of the interviews. The mpeg version is not the greatest quality. Included on the CD-ROM in the "\av" folder is the original .avi file, which is a much better quality. Unfortunately, most CD-ROMs are not fast enough to support playing the AVI file from CD, so you must first copy the .avi file to your hard disk, and then view it from there. All windows machines are capable of viewing .avi files and you should only have to double click on it once you've copied it.

  • On May 31, 2001, Jeff Lettau (Ken's son) called into the Ken Hamblin national radio talk show, and talked with Ken live for about four minutes regarding Ken, Randy and Joe's adventures.
    The Ken Hamblin show was kind enough to provide us with audio tapes for the day of the interview, and you can listen to the interview by clicking here. (Note: Internet explorer may prompt you to download the latest version of Windows Media Player. In most cases this is not necessary, and is a rather misleading statement by Microsoft. Try to not download it first and it should work, as all Windows machines have mp3 playback already.) The mp3 and wav files for this interview are located in the "\av" folder of this CD-ROM if you wish to use them elsewhere.
