Dylan Schmitz and Marty Gallipeau, two members of the media group Badfish.tv, are on a road trip across the United States, exploring new fishing waters and finding adventure. Outbound: A Cross Country Adventure is a real-time series documenting a 2 month road trip across the entire country, exploring new waters and new experiences.

“Somehow we've managed to convince BASS Pro Shops and all these great companies that this was a good idea, so we've teamed up and they'll be supplying us with the fishing and camping gear we’ll need for all the different areas," Schmitz says. "They did have one stipulation however…we have to stop at every BASS Pro store in the country. (There’s 76) Fair enough."

Along with contributions from BASS Pro and the other outdoor gear companies, SylvanSport is providing the team with its award winning GO Mobile Adventure Gear Camping Trailer.
