Tom: [Laughs.] He was really funny.

Ray: He told us this whole story about how he drove his old Chevrolet from Minnesota to Alaska. The car had 350,000 miles on it, and he’d made a major repair using a barbeque grill. He wanted to know if he should drive the car home. We told him, “Go for it.”

Some of our best calls are from people who are trying to go on some kind of adventure and need encouragement. A lot of people lead predictable lives and don’t take any risks. But if you don’t, then you won’t have any stories to tell your kids. You don’t want to do something that’s going to end your life, but it’s good to do stuff where things can go wrong. If something happens, and it creates an adventure, you’ll remember it forever.

I remember one guy who was going to take a trip with his father and brother. They were going to drive some old Dodge Dart or some other old clunker. Doug [Berman, the producer] was in our headphones suggesting that we tell these guys to rent a newer car. I said no. The best thing that can happen is you break down every hundred miles and you get into arguments and everything goes wrong. It’ll be the greatest trip you ever took.
