Summer Brokeback Truck Tour - July 21 - 25, 2006
We completed the Tour of the movie locations in the Brokeback Truck. It was myself (Rob Freeman) as host, son Mark Freeman as video-journalist, our guests Bob Welsh & his son Jeff Welsh, from West Harrison, Indiana - the winning eBay bidders of this unique 1 time only tour. All proceeds went to charity - The Rob Freeman Foundation. Everyone had fun touring in the Brokeback Truck, re-enacting the scenes from the movie in the towns, Parks & rural areas used in the film & taking in the magnificent Alberta scenery.
