Nightmares

Hey Team, Every since I was very young I’ve had a problem with terrible nightmares. Sometimes it’s not so much that they’re gruesome, or even “scary,” it’s often just a matter of how extraordinarily vivid they are. I can’t exactly remember when this became a problem…as far back as I can recall I would lie…

Wholesale Slaughter

Wholesale Slaughter

Hey Team, I rode the motorcycle up to Northern California yesterday to meet with a couple of friends I haven’t seen in a very long time. It seemed like a simple enough procedure and in many ways it was…it just wasn’t a very comfortable ride. Turns out this is also butterfly mating season here in…

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.) But the problem I ran into yesterday was pretty unique and I’m not sure how much of it Greyhound was to blame for but they always make…

The Immortal Words of Lewis Carroll

The Immortal Words of Lewis Carroll

“You can have podcasts tomorrow or podcasts yesterday but never podcasts today.” – Through the Looking Glass I think that’s how it went. He was a pretty progressive guy. Point is: I let you guys down. Again. Between long bus rides and car rides and taxes it’s REALLY tough for one guy to make it…
