For followers of our blog and of StickerGiant, you were ready for Saul's road trip to San Diego, and he surely delivered.
Saul shoved off from the StickerGiant Headquarters on Monday, March 18th, 2019 at around 9:30am. His first stop and unload was just over Loveland Pass in Colorado right above Arapahoe Basin Ski Area, which you can see above.
We shot a three-part documentary while on the road, and you can check out the whole series on our website. In the meantime, check out the first act right here.
Here are some shots and stops on the road.

On day one, Saul made four total stops. After stopping in Colorado, Saul checked out the Utah State sign and then visited with the World's Largest Watermelon in Green River, Utah. It was quite the meeting of the minds, and they discussed their respective record-breaking achievements before posing for a family photo.
Right after the stop in Green River, Saul went to the San Rafael Swell, which is the entry point to Utah's massive backcountry and a very scenic stretch of I-70 across red rock country.
Day Two on the Road to San Diego
One major moment on the second day of the trip was when our local newspaper the Longmont Times Call featured the road trip in a story promoting Saul's first journey out of Colorado.
Saul really loved stopping at the Vegas Sign on the southern end of the Las Vegas. There was quite a crowd that gathering to say hello.
Saul made a quick stop off on Famous Route 66 in Barstow, California.
Here's Saul arriving in California at the Pacific Coast north of San Diego.
Saul Making Friends in San Diego
Saul's first task when arriving at the convention center was his weigh in. Both the ball and the sled checked in at over 550 pounds! He's never been lifted in his custom sled, and Saul got a kick out of how fascinated everyone was with him as he entered the building.
Once the event started, Saul really was the life of the show. New fans tagged him in photos and shared in his World Record. He really loved meeting current customers who have been following his journey from the beginning.
Here's a few of his favorites from his time at the Social Media Marketing World 2019 Conference.
