**Hey Team! This is a VERY old story. It started in 2002 and was original posted on an old Myspace blog on May 13th, 2006. But it’s one of the most incredible things that has ever happened to me and I wanted to share it without having to link to (shudder) Myspace. So here it…

Lux Delux

Hey Team, **Good news! I’ve single-handedly discovered the one sure-fire way to ensure you stop blogging completely. Just write a post about how you intend to write more. Even better news!  Here’s a post I told my new friends over at Lux Delux I would write for them…a month ago. Enjoy.** First, some background: You…

Now What?

Now What?

Hey Team, It’s been a long time since I’ve written a blog post for Amtrekker, and what with TBEX going on in Vancouver this weekend I felt forced into evaluating why that might be. The easy answer is, I’m not homeless anymore…but that feels like a cop out. The truth, as usual, is a little…

The Crop Circle Video! Finally!!!

Hey Team, Enjoy the New Year’s Eve shenanigans! Here’s my gift to you (inspired by a desire to vindicate myself in the face of that crazy SOB William Shatner). 🙂 “Amtrekker travels to Beulah, MI to create a crop circle! Failures and ethnically insensitive impressions ensue.” I’m done. Brett.

A Few Rambling Thoughts on Cruising

A Few Rambling Thoughts on Cruising

Hey Team, Cruise ships are not a form of transportation. They’re more like huge freaking hotels that you’re locked inside of for 16 hours at a time with a few thousand of your closest friends (provided you don’t have many actual close friends), and when they finally open the gates, you’ve been mysteriously teleported to…

Cruise Overview (in haiku)

Cruise Overview (in haiku)

Hey Team, I’ve been sitting here staring at this blank page for a little over twenty minutes now trying to decide what I’d like to write about the Princess Cruise that a handful of twittering travel folk were invited on (and I got to tag along for some reason). I think one of the big…
