The Bootmobile and Its Odd Friends


When you’re touring the East Coast in a 13’ boot-on-wheels, you’re bound to see a real mix of characters. On its freshman year journey, our Bootmobile has encountered the silly, the surreal and the spooky. Join us as we recount a few of those special moments.

…and picked up a four-legged friend along the way, too.

    Love the pictures. Especially e one in Center Valley Pa. That’s where I had my chance to see the largest boot and a banana together. Thanks LL Bean for all the years!
