Family Radio owner Harold Camping purchased over 5,500 billboards across the world proclaiming May 21st, 2011 to Judgment Day. In the days leading up to May 21st, national media in the United States aired interviews with Camping and his followers. Some of Camping's followers stated that they had spent every penny traveling and proclaiming May 21st as Judgment Day. They didn't think it mattered; the world was going to end.
I wondered why Camping would endanger his followers and provide such fodder for ridicule by claiming to know the day and hour of judgment day?
I began at midnight on May 21st at the digital billboard Family Radio had purchased that radiated its message at the Eastern end of the Bay Bridge. Envisioning a world where the rapture had suddenly taken place, I set out. I had no destination in mind except one, I visited Family Radio headquarters along the way.
