Stylish Dead Folks

Hey Team, Between twitter making me lazy and being stuck in a hearse for a week (Who would have ever thought I’d have the opportunity to say that and mean it?) there hasn’t been much new info up here in the last few days. But SO much has happened and so much is in the…

The Wonderful World of Greyhound

The Wonderful World of Greyhound

Hey Team, I stepped up into the doorway resigned to the upcoming fifty-three hour marathon only to be slapped in the face by a wall of stale air. A quick look around shows only one empty seat; not leaving me the usual option of scouring the bus for the least stained place to plant myself.…

Thank You

Thank You

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…

“Food” Stops

Hey Team, It’s no secret that Greyhound is a long boring ride no matter where you’re going. (And mysteriously, I’m relatively sure, every ride takes about twenty-four hours.)

“Hey Kettle You’re Looking Kinda…Black”

Hey Team, I’ve never made any attempt at keeping secret the fact that Greyhound is my least favorite method of travel. There are some pretty unsavory characters rolling around those terminals. When I was traveling to St. Louis I had the privilege of sharing the bus with an older man with a bushy white beard,…

Walk It Off

Walk It Off

Hey Team, I’ve recently discovered two very interesting and telling facts about the people living in this great country of ours. 1. NO ONE’S concept of “walking distance” is the same as mine. And 2. NO ONE has any concept of distance. Period. I explored the better part of St. Louis by foot today and…

I HATE

I HATE

Hey Team, I’m sure there are a few of you out there that already know this but I don’t think I’ve ever written about it so most of you are probably in the dark. There are precious few things in this life that I would file under the category of “Things Brett Hates.” All in…
