Life Inside the Wienermobile Vehicle

Stories from the road

Hot Dog Hammock

As we travel across the hot dog highways, Hotdoggers are prepared for anything. With only two suitcases overflowing with a full years worth of luggage, we need to pack for any situation that might arise. I was one lucky dog to remember to pack my portable hammock.  Traveling in the Northwest with my meat mate Pepper Jackie Cheese, we’ve had plenty of opportunities to hang my hammock amidst beautiful views.

This while we waited with WEENR for our ride to Penske, we set up the hammock and looked at the WEENR’s sunny skies until our ride came.

Dog Gone Shadows!

After eight short months of crisscrossing the hot dog highways, it becomes increasingly easy to forget the vehicle we’re driving is actually a 27-foot-long hot dog on wheels.  That’s why we always look out for our goofy reflection, which reminds us that we’re actually in a giant hot dog!

Wiener Whistle Adventures

While traveling across the hot dog highways, Hotdoggers have the unique opportunity to stop at some of the most scenic and beautiful sights in America.

As we explore the beautiful scenery of state parks and big cities,  sometimes it’s impossible to take the big dog with us.

When this is the case we bring the next best thing, an Oscar Mayer Wiener Whistle. Here are some of the beautiful landscapes that we’ve visited with the Wienermobile:

A Handsome Hot Dog

As a Hotdogger, you always need to make sure the Wienermobile is looking it’s best! It’s very important that the big dog is decorated in the latest seasonal fashions as we roll down the hot dog highways of America.

Check these cool Wienermobile decorations! Which one do you like best?

Hot Dog Chili

As colder weather sets in across the hot dog highways of America we notice some changes that take place. The leaves fall from the trees, the scents of fall and winter fill the air, and chili replaces our friend’s ketchup and mustard as a favorite hot dog condiment.

While Tailgating Theresa and I were in Albany, NY we entered the Northeast Kidney Foundations Chili Challenge. We flipped the idea of a chili dog inside out! We made hot dog chili with Oscar Mayer Selects! It was a huge hit at the chili competition.

If you’re looking for a delicious and easy chili recipe for this holiday season try our recipe bellow:

1 Package Oscar Mayer Selects Angus (Diced)

1 Onion (Diced)

1 Green Pepper (Diced)

1 Jalapeño (Diced)

1 Can Red Beans

1 Can Tomatoes

1 TBLS Chili powder

¾ TBLS Garlic Powder

Happy Cooking!!

Hot Dog Highways in Perspective

One of the most common questions we get asked as Hotdoggers is, “where have you been so far?” As we travel across the hot dog highways and change locations every week, this is an increasingly difficult question to answer, so I thought it would be best to show you.

Tailgating Theresa and I have been traveling in the Northeast for the past six months and these are some of the many places we have visited, while spreading miles of smiles along the way.

East Team Goes to Canada!

It was a beautiful Monday morning in mid-July and the Wienermobile was getting restless. Tailgating Theresa and I trekked in the big dog to the Canadian border to meet the neighbors up North. When we neared the border we let WNR MBLE rest while we explored all that Niagara had to offer.

We even walked over to the neighbors with our passports in hand to meat their pet moose.

Check out our adventure below!

My new snapback has a first name it’s SWAG!

Soon after fashion week ended in New York City, the retro Oscar Mayer snapback debuted in a Class 25 photo shoot in Madison, Wisconsin.
As Hotdoggers we are always excited to represent Oscar Mayer and the Wienermobile with the latest gear and apparel. Whenever you meat  a Hotdogger out on the hot dog highways you’ll see us wearing our stylish and always fashionable Wienermobile apparel.

Zombiweenie!

Once a year the trees become ripe with color, the smell of fall is in the air, and zombie’s roam Saratoga Spa State Park in Saratoga Springs, NY.

As we pulled into the park, Tailgating Theresa and I were greeted by hundreds of zombie and human runners participating in the Rundead 5k benefiting the New York Special Olympics.  Participants could sign up to be a zombie trying to catch the humans, or a human trying to our run the zombies all throughout the 5-kilometer race.

Humans vs. Zombies

Tailgating Theresa and I joined the dark side and got our faces painted like Zombies to join in on the festivities.

The Rundead 5k had a goal of raising $10,000 dollars for the New York Special Olympics. However, With the support of the surrounding communities the 5K raised $27,000!! Well exceeding their goal, and having a great time doing it!
