JUST WHAT EXACTLY IS THE MISSION OF THE TUXEDO TRAVELS?

The Tuxedo Travels is nothing less than a mission to save humanity; it's directly about communities and people, not politicians and their 'politics'. The facts:

  • On April 1st, two fools who barely know each other will travel overland from Hong Kong to London, hopefully arriving in late 2007.
  • We will be using the internet to directly connect people to our experiences AND since this is the world's first interactive journey you, the crazy viewer, will have a direct effect what we do and how we do it (see the Feedback section).
  • While avoiding getting kidnapped or molested (against our will), we are attempting to raise US$20,000 for an altogether silly charity (see The Silly Fund).
  • Aaah, yes, and the entire trip will be done in tuxedos.

IT DOESN'T SOUND LIKE YOU'VE GOT MUCH OF A PLAN NOW, HAVE YOU?

Precisely dear friend! Are we looking for some hidden delights in South Asia? Yes. Are we wondering how we're going to traverse the Himalayas? Certainly. Can one sail across the Caspian Sea? Who knows? Are we concerned that we'll get gang banged in Russia? Sure!

We're embarking on this journey and we're not sure what we'll find but one thing IS for certain, we're damn well looking for it.


SO WHY THE TUXEDO?

It grabbed your attention didn't it? Now we're going to attempt to disrobe the tensions in the world through our light hearted humour and rugged good looks. We are completely non-elitist, but at the same time we don't think people should take themselves too seriously. What better way to attempt to say "it doesn't matter what you look like" than to wear tuxes and hang about in dodgy locales until people take notice.

And finally, nobody's ever going to take us seriously dressing like backpackers are they?


FAIR ENOUGH, SO JUST HOW DID IT MAKE IT FURTHER THAN A DRUNKEN VISION?

The wonderful and rare fact that neither one of us possesses the clarity of judgment to say "OK, let's be reasonable now..."


ARE THERE ANY RULES?

There's no rules, no set parameters and no expectations, except one - the entire voyage will be accomplished wearing tuxedos:

  • A minimum of 12 hours a day.
  • It can be any type of tuxedo, classic, old school, ugly prom, but it must be recognizable as a tuxedo.
  • We can add more clothing for warmth or remove in hot climates but again, it must still be recognizable as tuxedo based.
  • In times of kidnap, you may remove the tuxedo but no longer hold the right to call yourself a tuxedo traveler.

AND WHAT'S YOUR FINAL GOAL?

Besides getting back in one piece with anal virginity intact? Truthfully, we began brainstorming this mission with a lot of set parameters and defined goals and in a moment of clarity 'SHAZAM!' we realized that we didn't quite know what we were going to find. That's when we decided to make the mission to find the mission!

Hopefully you'll discover our goal along with us as we make our way across more than 18 countries spreading the love and hopefully inspiring the world to be a friendlier place for us all. Hey! Maybe that's the goal! Or not!
