Online Road Meets & Live Streams, feat. "roadwaywiz"

Hey everyone,

I am pleased to announce the launch of a brand-new feature to the road enthusiast hobby. I've been experimenting over the past couple years (on my YouTube channel) with a variety of types of *live* road video content, including simulcasts of my drives and Road Meet tours. The next experimental step is the "Online Road Meet", a Meet-style event where I'm joined by one or two guest hosts as we take viewers on a driving tour of a planned itinerary and act as tour guides along the way. The idea is that road enthusiasts and other interested parties can tune in remotely from wherever they may be and follow along with the tour and interact with the hosts via the live chat. While I do not expect this to become a frequent item on the annual Road Meet calendar, it does provide folks the opportunity to take part in a formal event and to see parts of our country that they may otherwise not be able to see with a structured/in-person formula. I strongly believe that we are all better off if more of us are able to "see" more of the scenes we know and adore, and this new  feature may be seen as a means of connecting more people and introducing more of us to the Road Meet concept.

The first "Online Meet" has tentatively been scheduled and I will be providing more information about that event shortly. I will also be posting announcements, links, and other useful information regarding these Meets in this topic. Keep it here if you'd like to stay informed regarding future live content, including Live Drives, Online Meets, and Road Meet simulcasts.

The first-ever "Online Road Meet" is now upon us and will take place on Saturday, August 24 starting at 1 PM ET. The Meet Tour will include notable points of interest and landmarks in the area of Chester, PA and Bridgeport, NJ, with highlights including (but not limited to):
US 322/Conchester Hwy construction update
Commodore Barry Bridge
New Raccoon Creek Bridge (US 130)
NJ Route 324

The Meet will be streamed *live* at this location: //www.youtube.com/watch?v=NBZAg45nx8I
I will be your host alongside forum moderator Ian as we bring you along for this comprehensive itinerary, a copy of which will be uploaded/provided for all interested in following along in a forthcoming update. Hope to see some of you in "attendance"!

I need to find three hours to sit down and watch the PGH meet.

This is a great concept, but only works in areas with good cell reception. I'd like to do a virtual tour of the progress made on US 460 since I hosted a meet in Pikeville, Ky., several years ago, but the cell service is awful.

What equipment are you using? What type of phone and mount?

It would be cool if I could expand this concept to the 2020 Cincinnati meet. I'm not sure I can get the right equipment.

... or just record it and upload it to youtube when you get back.  it's not like something like a road tour really needs to be experienced live.
