Dave Price and travel companion Frank Kulbaski, a lawyer from Washington, D.C., headed Friday for the clear blue waters of the South Pacific -- and Tahiti!
To get there, they flew from Washington to New York, then to Tahiti, then back via Los Angeles; Dave continued on to New York. Dave logged 13,295 miles for the weekend, making his running total for this latest series of All-Access trips 44,841 miles.
On Wednesday, Dave let Early Show viewers in on some of the fun he and Frank had on their Tahitian "All-Access" adventure.
They went snorkeling among some of the most exotic fish in the world, not to mention some sharks; swam with dolphins; ate delicious tropical foods, and learned how to mix Tahitian drinks.
They participated in a traditional local festival that had them lifting heavy stones and throwing javelins, among other things.
They even took a helicopter to an island once owned by a big star. It's still looked after by the star's son and will be the site of an eco-friendly hotel within a few years.
A thankful Frank called his adventure "an amazing experience for me that I'll never have again."
