Philadelphia – The Bad

Hey Team,

Pretend you’re in a strange town. You don’t know anyone. You don’t know where you are, how you got there or how you’re getting to the next place (What place? You don’t know that either.).

You do however, know that:

1. There will be Firworks in three hours. And 2. You have a place to stay as soon as you make a phone call.

Now, pretend you are an idiot that decided to travel the entire country for months and didn’t bring a cell phone charger. While you had you eyes closed, (Yes, you should always have your eyes closed when pretending. And don’t give me those lame “I can’t read with my eyes closed” excuses.) picturing the situation, did you happen to hear the thunder or feel the pouring rain?

As much fun as that sounds I was actually SOAKING wet and miserable. I know, tough to believe, right? All I really knew was that I wasn’t going to be able to find a cell charger where I was (no hotel lost and founds near by) and it was starting to rain harder. So I asked the nearest policeman where the nearest train station was and he pointed to the nearest street More >

Philadelphia – The Good

Hey Team,

So far things are going better than I could have hoped. Well, to be honest, Philadelphia was kind of a mixed bag and much closer to what I would expect the rest of the trip to be like: Lots of incredible history and more than a little trudging through pouring rain.

Now this is a story all about how my life got flipped, turned upside down (Seriously, is there anything better than obscure television references?). I landed in Philly around 5am and by 9:30 I had managed to leave the airport by a train to the center of the city, which in Philadelphia is called Center City (Clever, eh? Try to keep up.)

The first thing I noticed about Philly was it’s striking similarities to Los Angeles. Okay, by striking I suppose I mean not very remarkable and by similarities I mean similarity. But here’s my point: Philadelphia has a lot of very tall building that they use as canvases to paint ENORMOUS murals on (very much like LA). The big difference is these murals aren’t advertising Spider-Man 3 or Ratatouille, these murals are all very historical because…golly, these folks love their history like Californians love to complain about their taxes.

Hey Team,

I’m soaking wet and going on my thirty-fifth hour without sleep right now. So far everything is going EXACTLY as expected. Honestly, I had a great time today and I’ll try to have a run down of my Philadelphia experience up tomorrow sometime. Tonight you kids are the privileged few who get to experience my newest airport rant! And I’m really sorry the really for real amtrekker.com site isn’t up yet. I promise it’s someone else’s fault.

Okay, suppose you want to travel by jet somewhere AND you want to bring toothpaste, deodorant and contact lens solution. Tough. TSA says no. And they don’t leave you a lot of wiggle room. You can’t have any container bigger than 3 ounces and all of your containers have to fit in a clear zip-top sandwich bag. By itself I suppose that’s not terrible. But don’t forget to take off your shoes. OH! And make sure your laptop is out of it’s case…whoops don’t forget the camcorder too! ARE YOU FREAKING KIDDING ME!!!

“No, now please empty your pockets.” Things are getting WAY out of hand with airport security. And here’s my new scary theory.

The Update

Hey Team,

The site is running a little behind and the departure date is practically here. Just a few last minute preparations and then it’s off into the unknown (and of course by unknown I mean completely known and thoroughly explored by people that aren’t me) for an indeterminate amount of time. So, phase one brings you all to this myspace page a.k.a. the temporary home of www.amtrekker.com. The next phase is the part where you check in every day for the opportunity to live vicariously through my adventures (and more than likely my misery).

For those of you who are chronically out of the loop or not “in the know” I’ll be traveling mostly by train completely at the whim of my list until every single item is crossed off!

On a couple of side notes, I’ll be traveling mostly by train because:

1. I REALLY don’t like driving. 2. It’s ecologically friendlier (come on people, save the planet!). 3. It’s cheap! (relatively.)

Also, in addition to the formal list of objectives one of my overarching goals is to not spend a single dime on lodging…hence your responsibility to live vicariously through my occasional misery.

And finally, this isn’t just about a list of things More >
