Dave Price Rolling Along on the Open Road

In our special series, "Dave Price: No Way Home," "Early Show" weather anchor and features reporter Dave Price is traveling across the country with just a backpack and what began as $50.

"The Early Show" caught up with Dave at the Albuquerque International Balloon Festival, in Albuquerque, N.M., Monday morning.

But how did he get there?

After receiving rides, money and jobs from several people from Santa Monica, Calif. to Las Vegas, Dave hitched a ride with the Brunet family to Meteor Crater, Ariz.

The Brunets, a couple who sold their home in Maine to buy an RV, gave Dave a place to stay for the night. But, that place happened to be their Jeep, which they hitch to their home on wheels. The Brunets gave Dave a sleeping bag, but woke up cold and groggy after spending the night in the vehicle.

The Brunet family dropped Dave off in Winslow, Ariz., where he walked through a truck stop and persuaded Oscar Pena to give him a ride in his semi-trailer truck to New Mexico.

Pena dropped Dave off in Albuquerque. Dave then made his way to the balloon fest, where they put him to work doing manual labor.
