2018 Winter Break: “Over Think Tank” Drift
Captain Log: Wolfgrave
Time period: January 4 (Thursday) to January 7 (Sunday)
Destination: North woods of Wisconsin
Miles covered: 1,800-miles
Mission: Happy New Year 2018!
”You never know what can become of such adventures. You travel in order to connect with people from other places.”
Wolfgrave travels from the prairie to the northwoods in search of fresh air and water from the homeland.
This 4-day “vacation and work” trip goes from the plains, past the Big Rivers of North America, and up to the North Woods of Wisconsin.
This particular 2018 winter has been repressively cold.
An adventure is needed to reflect on the past year, recharge, and find answers in 2018.
Wolfgrave ventures out for drifterRadio.com on a 4-day Wisconsin vacation-mission.
Stories are told. Strategies were discussed.
Farmer Fashion 2018 is promoted.
The final destination for Wolfgrave’s vacation-work drift is “The Over Think Tank Show” near Hayward.
The Over Think Tank Northern Wisconsin internet show is hosted by Chris K and Janitor Jake.
Jake and Chris are a couple of good-hearted, creative, and smart Northern Wisconsin dudes that like to talk about video games, movies/media, and music.
What a great pair of folks to collaborate with!
Over-Think Tank opens the “Movie Trailer” Studio
As the new studio is setup, ideas for the show are discussed with Jake, Chris, and Wolfgrave.
As the new location is being dialed-in with cameras and mics, the hosts and guest brainstorm over a rough outline for the show and some ideas written on sticky notes.
The Over Think Tank show has no writers. The actors are the writers. This is part of the creative fun.
The show’s strategy is to have the actor’s improvise a show on based a collection of random ideas.
The editing process also works its magic.
Including camera shifts, reshoots, audio testing, furniture placement, and wardrobe changes, it took about 4-hours to have enough material for an episode.
Pretty efficient, but a n 8-hour day would have been nice in order to produce multiple shows and a variety of cuts and work out details such as music.
Rock and roll!
“The Gun Show” Marketing Project
Only as a result of collaborating with both B&B Graphics from La Crosse, Wisconsin and “The Over Think Tank,” this past vacation-work week adventure made it possible for Wolfgrave to be able envision a quirky marketing angle for FarmerFashion.com.
As Wolfgrave drove home through a super-cold, dark, and howling-night in Minnesota, he thought about what had transpired in the last couple of days.
In this winter vacation-drift, Wolfgrave had secured the help of a screen printing business in developing a brand for his agribusiness. The next day, he promoted the beginnings of this FarmerFashion.com brand on a cable access-like late night show hosted by a couple of up-and-coming personalities from the North Woods of Wisconsin. Regardless of the repressive-cold, it was not a bad vacation.
While thinking about all of the funny aspects of the show, Wolfgrave laughs at how Janitor Jake took advantage of the fact that “FarmerFashion.com” was written on the t-shirt sleeve.
The shirt’s graphic placement prompts Janitor Jake to flex his bicep to the camera in true male modeling style. This inspires a Wolfgrave marketing-strategy for FarmerFashion.com:
“The Gun Show!”

Other investment/$ opportunities from January 2018 Drifting:
The Over Think Tank Show could probably just buy the trailer park block that the show is hosted in. It could be like a U.S. version of Sunnyvale Trailer Park
The two block wooded area around where the “Movie Trailer” sits, and the surrounding trailers, could all be purchased for less than what two Portland mini-mansions might cost.
A US version of the Sunnyvale Trailer Park probably could be boughten-up for less than $1.2 million in Northern Wisconsin.
