Each ride is different, including the number of people that go on the rides. Normally there is an average of around 25 people for each ride with people from all over the United States participating in the rides. Anyone who is interested can call the office and sign up to go until the rides are full. Fuchs and his wife have made several acquaintances and friendships with people on the rides.

Fuchs said a lot of people seem surprised when they ask him where he's from and he tells them West Virginia. He said people act like people from W.Va. are not supposed to get out of the state! Fuchs and his wife try to prove the stereotypes wrong though. Fuchs said he and his wife are sure to take care of their belongings, including their well-kept mules. Fuchs also noted his wife is a very likeable, pretty woman, who is a good representation of the Mountain State.

Anyone who would like to participate in the rides can go to the website to find out more. Older episodes of the show may also be watched through the website.
