Thanks for watching. If you like the podcasts be sure to head over to iTunes and subscribe…and write a glowing review.

I’m done.

The Green Kid

Hey Team,

This week has definitely been unique and I have to admit I’m a little frustrated right now. So many interesting things have happened that I’d love to be writing about and there’s just not enough room on the page. Hopefully over the next couple days it’ll all spill out, but there’s SO much editing to do too.

“What? Why’s that? You just have the Biketoberfest footage to deal with, right…right?”

“HA! That’s where you’re wrong, stupid misinformed disembodied voice!”

I’m in Orlando right now staying with an old friend from my Walt Disney World days and it struck me just before I got here that way back when (it’s been five years since I’ve worked for the mouse on this coast) there used to be a street performer that worked out on the Boardwalk region of the resort performing con games.

“What kind of con games?”

Will someone tell that creepy voice to stop interrupting?

Three card Monte, of course! It was a total long shot but we headed over to the Boardwalk and asked around. It was raining so we figured any performers would have packed it in already anyway but eventually we ran into a guy that was dressed like someone that I More >

#9 – Tales from the Wayback Machine. [podcast]

Hey Team,

Here’s a little something special I put together to combat my frustration that I wasn’t able to turn on my video camera during one of my favorite experiences from the trip. Call it a dramatization. Enjoy!

Get the Flash Player to see the wordTube Media Player. var WT2_2 = { params : { wmode : "opaque", allowscriptaccess : "always", allownetworking : "all", allowfullscreen : "true"}, flashvars : { file : "http%3A%2F%2Fwww.amtrekker.com%2Findex.php%3Fxspf%3Dtrue%26id%3D44", volume : "80", bufferlength : "5", controlbar : "over", 'logo.hide' : "false", shuffle : "false", playlist : "bottom"}, attr : { id : "WT2", name : "WT2"}, start : function() { swfobject.embedSWF("http://www.amtrekker.com/wp-content/uploads/player.swf", "WT2_2", "437", "522", "9.0.0", false, this.flashvars, this.params , this.attr ); } } WT2_2.start();

The last two days have been JAM PACKED with excitement…so expect some of that excitement to leak out via amtrekker.com in the next few days. It’s going to take a lot of work to keep up but I’ll do my best to make sure you guys stay up to date on the “nomadic serendipity.” And yes, I just stole that term from a fellow nomad. (serolynne.livejournal.com)

Okay, I’ve got to try to get some rest.

I’m done.

Fish out of water(…and into retaw?)

Hey Team,

Question: What happens when you find yourself tossed in the middle of a huge group of people that have nothing in common with you (besides maybe the fact that they’re bipedal) yet EVERYTHING in common with each other, thus making you as out of place as possible?

Answer: You find yourself one step closer to home!

Fish out of water doesn’t even begin to describe the position I found myself in today. The fish would have to be not only OUT of water but then back into something that is the opposite of water…like steam, or fire maybe (or retaw?). Of course this feeling was compounded by my company. Mike, my CouchSurfing host, is an awesome guy…unfortunately, he’s also just as skinny and dorky as I am. Not to mention, for the first time on this trip I actually felt overdressed.

So, to say we stuck out like a pair of sore thumbs at Biketoberfest would be an understatement. Luckily, that’s exactly what made the day interesting.

Fun facts:

1. Motorcycle rallies are not a place to find “attractive” women.

2. Fat men in leather will not hesitate to use their girth to move you.

3. The English language needs FAR fewer words than it has. More >

Welcome to the wonderful world of the kindness of strangers:

Why NOT be a kind stranger?

Slo-Mo

Hey Team,

One of the most common questions I get asked on this trip is, “Which one of the things on your list do you think will be the hardest to accomplish?” The unfortunate thing about today is now I’m going to actually have to think about my answer next time someone asks that question. My stock answer for the last couple months has been “#18 Pet a sloth.” But take a look at this picture!!!

That’s Doug from the Cincinnati Zoo on the left, you might recognize me on the right and that chick hanging out center frame is my new best friend Mo! (She’s slow…get it?)

The day started out bright and early with a drive to the Cincinnati Zoo where we met Dan Marsh, the Assistant Director of Education, who introduced us to Doug Feist (Yeah, that Doug.) the Animal Manager. Words like incredible, knowledgeable and friendly don’t do justice to either one of them, they both went above and beyond to let me have my little moment of sunshine and I’m not afraid to admit that I’m not a talented enough writer to aptly describe how much I appreciate it.

Mo had much longer and softer fur than I had More >

#23 Hang gliding! [Podcast]

Hey Team,

Here’s that new podcast I’ve been promising. I’m trying something a little different this time so I can keep track of the stats a little easier. It should load on its own. Play button should be in the bottom left. But you might need quicktime, so if it doesn’t load on its own click here to download the latest version.

Also, the podcast is available on iTunes now so you should probably drop whatever you’re doing and go subscribe right away.

Get the Flash Player to see the wordTube Media Player. var WT5_5 = { params : { wmode : "opaque", allowscriptaccess : "always", allownetworking : "all", allowfullscreen : "true"}, flashvars : { file : "http%3A%2F%2Fwww.amtrekker.com%2Findex.php%3Fxspf%3Dtrue%26id%3D48", volume : "80", bufferlength : "5", controlbar : "over", 'logo.hide' : "false", shuffle : "false", playlist : "bottom"}, attr : { id : "WT5", name : "WT5"}, start : function() { swfobject.embedSWF("http://www.amtrekker.com/wp-content/uploads/player.swf", "WT5_5", "437", "522", "9.0.0", false, this.flashvars, this.params , this.attr ); } } WT5_5.start();

And if all else fails here’s the link for the youtube version of the podcast.

Thanks a ton for all the support, everyone! Let me know what you think of the video!

I’m done.

Brett!
