George Kuchar's "Wild Night in El Reno" is a great one.
. . . And there are the four "Visions in Meditation" by Brakhage, also; road 
trips through the States and eastern Canada.

Hi Adam, 
George Kuchar's Weather Diaries might fit this. George is often cast as an 
outsider in these, though he did sustain his relationship to this project for 
several decades. Many of his diary videos, like 500 Millibars to Ecstasy and 
The Celluloid Cavalcade, document cinema-motivated travels to different 
cities.  
Rosa von Praunheim's "Army of Lovers" is a late-1970s travelogue of the U.S. 
from the perspective of queer activism. 
Not experimental (and not very self-reflective), but perhaps interesting 
alongside that formulation, would be the travel films made in the teens and 
1920s by such filmmakers as Burton Holmes. Also the films of Martin and Osa 
Johnson (which Ken Jacobs later used for Star Spangled to Death). In a similar 
vein is Merian Cooper et al's "Grass: A Nation's Battle for Life."

 Hello you,
I am trying to pull together a list of experimental films that either fall 
directly under the category of "travelogue" or bear witness to travel and 
distance from a point of origin on the part of the filmmaker. These would not 
be so much ethnographic works which are part of a sustained cultural exchange, 
but films made as a result of the filmmaker "passing through" and acknowledging 
the looming spectre/problem/pleasure of "the tourist film". Warren Sonbert, 
perhaps John Smith's "The Hotel Diaries"? I'm sure there are others...but can 
you name them? 
Thanks/Grazie/Kiitos!
