Life Inside the Wienermobile Vehicle

Stories from the road

A Hotdogger Heads Home

Traveling across the hot dog highways of the United States is one of the best parts about being an Oscar Mayer Hotdogger! Our journey with the Wienermobile takes us to places that we never would have gotten a chance to see otherwise. During my time as a Hotdogger, I’ve seen cities from Louisville to San Diego and from Seattle to Boise..

Sometimes the best places on the road are the places that used to be home, that are familiar. I was lucky enough to ketchup with Columbia, Missouri, where I attended school, just a few weeks ago with the Wienermobile. It was nothing short of bunderful.

Bringing the Big Dog Home

As Hotdoggers, some of us lucky dogs have the chance to bring the Wienermobile back home and to our Alma maters. I have been fortunate enough to bring the 27 foot-long hot dog on wheels to Maryland several times! Any other Hotdogger who has had the chance to do so would probably agree that it is one of the most special and memorable weeks on the road. We love sharing the Wienermobile with our family and friends.

On a recent visit to my family’s home in Maryland, my fellow Hotdogger and I found something kind of strange on the walls. My parents decided to honor my love for hot dogs by updating some of our family photos. As we went through them they told Cokie, “See, Sam has always LOVED hot dogs!”

Top Six Moments from the First Six Months with the Wienermobile

Hamming it up during an on-camera interview

After spending half a year with the Wienermobile, I have visited more places than I could have ever dreamed of and met so many wonderful people. It would take a novel to write about all of the awesome moments I’ve had so far. But since I only have one blog post, I’ll just share my top six moments from the road!

Meat the Press

One thing you should know about Hotdoggers is that we love doing interviews with the media! Every time we visit a new city, we reach out to local radio stations, TV stations, and newspapers to get the word out about the Wienermobile vehicle’s visit.

To be frank, Cold Cut Cokie and I love the camera. It is so much fun being on TV. During a recent visit to Roanoke, VA, Cold Cut and I not only had the chance to do a live on-air interview, but we got a tour of the studio and learned about how TV gets made. One of the most exciting things for me to watch was the cooking segment. Someday I hope to have my own segment where I make all of my favorite regional hot dog varieties!

The Wienermobile Meets One of its Biggest Fans

When you drive the Wienermobile, you get to hear lots of great stories from fans. This summer, we were cruising through Laguna Niguel, Calif. when we met Christy Freerks: Wienermobile Fanatic.

We have seen a lot of excited fans in our journeys around the country, but Christy out did them all. She has been a faithful Wienermobile follower for years. She loves our ride so much that her friends requested a visit for her 50th birthday. Unfortunately we weren’t in town for the momentous occasion, so her friends improvised and made her a papier-mâché cocktail weenie instead!
