Anniversary Sonnet

Anniversary Sonnet

Hey Team, Today is the “official” one-year anniversary of Amtrekker. Although yesterday was the 365th day thanks to leap year it was July 4th, 2007 when this adventure began. I’ve said it before but it’s still tough to believe things are still going. I gave you haikus on day 100. I gave you limericks on…

Hey Team, Today is the 365th day of Amtrekker. (Although officially tomorrow is the first anniversary…wacky leap year.) It’s hard to believe I’m still out on the road after all this time. I’m not sure which PART is hard to believe. Is it more of a surprise that it has taken me this long to…

Greenie Green?!

Hey Team, Here’s a quick story since I still haven’t been in one place near an outlet long enough to compress this week’s video. I jumped off the bus at about five o’clock this morning in Chicago several shades shy of bright-eyed and bushy-tailed and decided to meet up with a friend for breakfast before…

Toxic Stupidity Spill

Toxic Stupidity Spill

Hey Team, Here’s a super quick update so I can go jump on a bus real quick and go try to clean up the stupidity spill I caused this morning. (Which, once again, wouldn’t be a problem if I were capable of planning ahead more than half a step. But that’s what makes me so…
