Traveling with Eric Dowdle

I got a phone call a little while ago from the producer of Traveling with Eric Dowdle: Would I like to come down to the studio and be on the program? Oh, and by the way, I'd be appearing on a travel trivia segment.

I think the right answer is YES! I didn't know that the topic would be on....Florida.

Oh, Florida! The state I married into!

When I told Joe that they were inviting me to talk about Key West, he gave me a funny look. "You're the expert on Key West in this house?" He asked, one eye squinting in unbelief.
"I'm the expert on everything," I answered, daring him to prove how his actual trips to the Keys were more relevant than my cursory study of the area and a mostly vague knowledge of some sort of Hemingway tie-in.

Besides, I had Eric's handy folk art painting of Key West to help me out, right? 

I had so much fun taping the show. Eric is a total character, he and his producers put on a great show about traveling to great locales. Dowdle travels all the world and creates a painting of his destination with landmarks and points of interest. I've seen his art all over, and it was great fun putting a face to a name. I hope they are kind enough to have me back someday. 

 E.G. came with me and was quiet as a mouse sitting in the studio while the rest of the guests and I competed on the trivia challenge. He had a capital time and keeps asking when we're going to do a radio show again!

You can listen to the Key West show here, or tune into Eric's show as it airs on Sirius XM radio 143 BYU Radio.

Did you win? I'm assuming you won because I will never forget the Trivial Pursuit spanking you gave all of us on the company trip in lake powell.
