Yarr! Thanks for your sweet support for my new Huffington Post Travel TV show.

In the first episode, which you can watch here, I explore the kitschy Don Q Inn in Dodgeville, Wisconsin. Let me share behind-the-scenes images and stories from the shoot.

But first, as promised… here’s a photo of me in the “Mid-EVIL” fantasy room, writhing on the bondage bed!

The bed’s flanked by two knights, and a unicorn straight out of an LSD trip. Talk about a 1970s love shack.

The 21 theme rooms included a 2-story hot air balloon, Jungle, Caesar’s Palace, Teepee… and this swinging bed.

There’s only one word to describe the “Northern Lights” room. Cool.

I like to goof around and play (as you can see in the video). Here, I’m having a stand-off with “Mr Polar bear.”

Almost every bed had a mirror above it. Hmm, I wonder what why?

Have you ever sat on a Waterbed? I freaked out from the squishiness, and couldn’t get out! (Too bad this footage didn’t make the final cut.)

Hiding from the sheriff of Sherwood Forest. Previous guests carved their initials into the trunk of the tree. Only two adults are allowed to stay in each room… so I’m guessing strange stuff goes on behind closed doors.

The inn has an old Boeing jet in the back. Farrah Fawcett filmed a commercial here in the 1970s.

I felt like Wilma in the prehistoric Cave room. I was tempted to ring room service for an order of T-rex steak.

    Happy belated birthday, Miss Carmina! Hmmm…the DON Q Hotel sounds like a must-go for me. If I ever get the chance to lodge there, DEFINITELY the ‘Mid-Evel’ room. Complete with the bondage bed, yessir…

    On second thought, maybe the Caesar one would be better. Provided it has no snake, I can dream of being Cleopatra!! *o* LOL

    I saw the plane and realized I had been to the Don Q (although I didn’t stay there) on a NYC-to-Billings, MT-and-back motorcycle trip. I have pictures of the plane and the lobby fireplace surrounded by barbers chairs. Very cool. Oh, and FYI, the plane is not a jet. It has propellers.
