Hey Team, Here’s the Amtrekker cut of the Fox Business News’ “Happy Hour” program! It’s a little too long for youtube to accept so I’ll have to work on an alternative for some of you folks. (ahHA! Here’s a link that might work for some of you peeps.) But for the rest of you normal…

Hey Team, I was going to post another video today, (I have two ready, one of my ride to Mansfield, Pennsylvania where I’ll be spending Thanksgiving this year and one of the “Jump the Gun Turkey Run” which was basically this last weekend’s pre-Thanksgiving in Boston.) but somehow neither seemed appropriate enough for this holiday.…

Update

Hey Team, I don’t have a story for today, but I do have an update. There’s been a lot of behind the scenes action going on the last couple days as I’ve been trying to find a new way to bring in a couple dollars to the site to support the adventure. Things are moving…
