Hey Team, No more waiting! It’s Wednesday again and after almost a month long wait between objectives here it is…#24! Thanks again to Terry Evanswood and Jay of Magic Beyond Belief and to Pat and Helen for getting in touch with them. I had a blast! I hope the rest of you enjoy this week’s…

Quarry On

Hey Team, I’m headed south now but I ended up staying in Knoxville for an extra day when it looked like some members of a Bluegrass band I was mysteriously hanging around with might know some moonshiners.

Quitters Never Prosper

Hey Team, Anyone know of a hitchhiking 101 course I could crash at a local JC or anything? What is it about hitchhiking and colossal failures in the world of Amtrekker? I JUST got picked up 19 miles outside of Nashville by Chase, one of the guys I’ve been staying with for the last few…
