Fans visited Travel Channel’s Facebook page June 8-11 to vote on the excursions Josh and his friends tackled during their big adventure. They tuned in for a Facebook Live video Thursday, June 8 when Josh kicked off the trip. Then each morning, he presented two options in a live video for viewers to vote on where to send the crew that day. Fans chose to send them snow caving, kayaking, to make cheese and to go off-roading in sand dunes. Josh’s friends showed fans snippets of the adventure in real-time on Travel Channel’s Facebook page. Over the next few months, you’ll get the chance to see the entire road trip adventure unfold in four webisodes at
