Princess Emily

**Hey Team! This is a VERY old story. It started in 2002 and was original posted on an old Myspace blog on May 13th, 2006. But it’s one of the most incredible things that has ever happened to me and I wanted to share it without having to link to (shudder) Myspace. So here it…

Get Well Charley

Hey Team, Just wanted you all to know that Charley and I really appreciate all the support during the little guy’s difficult times. I’m out on a lake off the grid right now on a little mini Team Amtrekker get away so I had Charley pick out a few of his favorite pieces of mail…

Hometown Highlights

Hometown Highlights

Hey Team, One of the strange things about this trip is that I very rarely consider myself a tourist. I don’t do touristy things and I’m usually staying with people that, regardless of how well I know them, I think of as friends. So it seems more like I’m just wandering around down the block…
