Darn, how did I miss that he was in Austin! He could have updated for sure. LOL

I don't know where the ranch is, but it looks like it's in the Hill Country because of the scrub brush, north or west of Austin.

Gosh if we had known he was going to be in Austin...we could have definitely arranged for him to do some BB Updating!! :lol3:

Peach, Is Austin the center of your BB world now?  However, I don't think Jeff would be of much help to you since he doesn't tweet that much.  Your BB updates would suffer greatly.  Jeff needs a tag line at the end of each day to tweet like the old Good Night John-Boy  :lol:  (showing my age).

TexasLady,  Jeff visited a ranch up in Burnet in addition to visiting Austin.

Ah ha! Burnet is not that far from me, about 40 miles north, northwest. Small town with lots of ranches. I will see if the local paper has a write up on his visit.

Jeff is L.A. bound today but does not have a place lined up to stay. (Wanna bet he's gonna host the have-not or veto comp this weekend on Big Brother and wonder if Jordan will be there as well?)

Here are some twitpics from yesterday

Jeff just tweeted that he is going to hike at Malibu Creek today. He's heading out to Tokyo tomorrow. No mention of Jordan, don't know if she is still in LA or flew back home.

Jordan just tweeted a bit ago that she flew back to NC early this morning and have been sleeping all day and said she had fun in the BB house yesterday.

Here's some twitpics of Jeff today...

Jeff in Los Angeles Part 2.  I always get a kick in these travel shows where the host talks about how hard the hike is but never mentions that the camera people who are doing the same thing and also filming at the same time.   :lol:

Jeff and Jordan at the Big Brother House.  Are Jeff and Jordan really BF and GF?  She sure does have an aversion to PDA.

To me, this is the first webisode of the series.  Jeff is finally out of the country and will be able to immerse himself in a foreign culture.  It was kind of cool that the Japanese dad did not know about the visit before Jeff's arrival.  Also, I hope the good folks at Jeff's fan club got a good deal on the airline ticket since Jeff did another AA promo on their dime.  Also, hope Jeff learns better about the time zones.  His flight landed just before 5 pm. in Tokyo which is 4 am in N.C.  It would have been entertaining if Jordan had chewed him out or just hung up on him.   :lol:

In the first season, Alex spent nearly two weeks before he got out of the U.S. to head to the Caribbean. He spent time in South Carolina and Florida (visiting his TAR racing partner Chris) before he was able to arrange to be flown by private plane  out of the country.  So the cross-country trek will be a ATWFF tradition, and there are sound practical reasons for it.  It allows everything to be tested, equipment, web site, acclimation to how things are supposed to work, as unlike TAR this production team wiull change in some ways every season.

I hear you and what you say makes sense, but I still think they should have left immediately overseas.  I didn't follow the webisodes last time but did watch on WGN America.  The show didn't really pick up for me until Alex made it to the Caribbean. 

Most of the things that Jeff did in the U.S. anyone living here could have done.  It's visiting foreign lands staying with home country families experiencing their way of life is what makes the show special. 

As for getting the kinks out, that CBS web site still has problems and is certainly not the most user friendly.

Agree with the kinks. I understand the need for advertising revenue and am happy to sit thru one commercial, but three? Not so happy.
