Let's join extreme adventurer Michael Wigge for incredible challenges as he attempts - and succeeds - in visiting the United States of America - all 50 States in 50 days (and mostly by van).

On the way, we’ll share the sights and cultures - from top to bottom in the Grand Canyon, learning the trumpet in New Orleans, and exploring the Mormon culture in Utah, through windstorms in North Dakota and the Great Plains to New England, the South, even Alaska and Hawaii! Discovering the magic and majesty of our entire country as seen through the eyes of our German-born visitor will be a once in a lifetime experience to share!
