Road Trip 2008 Overview
In a remote, entirely unpopulated corner of Nevada, Sister Betty is referred to as "Our Lady of Perpetual Road Trips" - an homage to her continual desire to explore the world with a steering wheel. Betty dismisses such praise with an affectionate backhand, but she has expired the warranties of numerous cars exploring two, unconnected continents.

On September 2, 2008, Sister Betty will set out with her loyal sidekick, Burqa Boy, on a new, uncharted road trip spanning more than 10,000 miles, nearly 48 states and untold days and nights.
