Wilson and Ditch

Expand/Collapse Wilson and Ditch


Meet Wilson and Ditch, two funny, energetic and talkative gopher brothers, who are in a van – an eco-powered one - and driving around America. Wilson, the older brother, loves learning and teaching facts and reading about each new locale they travel to. He always drives the van while Ditch, the younger more fun-seeking brother who loves to relax and eat, is the permanent passenger. These gopher brothers drive from city to city as tourists who learn the history, "actual facts" (as Wilson calls them), and fun facts of every new location. The brothers also love experiencing the usual touristy stuff as well as the really unusual, obscure, and sometimes just weird sites each city has to offer. Join Wilson and Ditch and DIG AMERICA with them!
