A Day in the Life

Hey Team,

Here’s a quick look at a day in the life of the Amtrekker. Specifically yesterday. In Raleigh. I hate Raleigh.

As always, if that doesn’t work…here’s the youtube link.

I’m done.

Welcome to the wonderful world of the kindness of strangers:

Why NOT be a kind stranger?

Rambling and Ranting

Hey Team,

This may be the most indecisive I’ve been so far on this trip. I’m en route but still haven’t decided exactly where I’m en route too. I’m sitting on a bench in Greensboro, NC right now. At 9:21am I board a train for Raleigh and I have a ticket that leaves for Orlando later tonight.

Mostly I’m indecisive because I would like to go diving in the Atlantic this week but I already know I have to be in Florida the 18th-21st for Biketoberfest, (Which I’m totally stoked about. I love being places where everyone has something in common and they’re nothing like me. It such a great way to absorb a lot of information quickly.) so it wouldn’t make for a very efficient trip…but then again who said this trip has anything to do with efficiency.

And I just bought another rail pass yesterday so despite the fact that I’m dangerously close to broke at least I don’t have to worry about any travel expenses for the next month, so getting to and from Florida wont be a problem on that end.

I’m completely exhausted right now after only catching a couple hours of sleep on the train–

Hey! Maybe you can’t More >

On The Way Down Yonder

Hey Team,

I never realized how much I appreciated rail travel until JUST now. The train I had planned on taking down to Atlanta today was sold out, and so here I am sitting on a bus waffling between emotions as far ranging as frustrated-beyond-belief and bored-out-of-my-mind (and uncomfortable…is uncomfortable an emotion?).

So far I’ve returned all my calls, replied to the most pressing emails and beaten my already impressive high score on the brick game that came preloaded on my cell phone.

It’s been 45 minutes.

Only 19 hours and 15 minutes to go.

The most irritating aspect (besides having to sit still in a severely undersized seat for 20 straight hours) is the complete lack of electrical outlets! Come on people, this is the 21st century, get it together!

So now, not only am I missing out on the 20 hours of quality video editing time I thought I’d be getting in my cozy train seat with its convenient 120v outlet but I find myself wedged between two ridiculously narrow arm rests hunched over my notebook writing this article with a pen (a PEN!) so as not to waste what precious little power Charley has stored up in his well designed battery.

Male PMS

Hey Team,

Last night was kind of a rough night. Danielle used to call it “male PMS.” It may not be quite as regular as the chick version, but the results are always strikingly similar.

I wouldn’t exactly call it depression and I wouldn’t exactly call it loneliness…maybe more of a general malaise, or a low-grade frustration with life. It never really makes sense…and it’s rarely attached to any particular cause. But it’s usually characterized by me, in a bad mood, wanting to escape. Unfortunately, I’m kind of in the middle of my most complicated escape attempt to date. So where do I go from there?

In most cases I just want to get away from everything and everyone and do some good solid Goth style brooding (minus the creepy makeup and hair and clothing…and coffee…and clove cigarettes…and bad poetry…and the strange conformity to one given look that goes beyond any conformity that the Abercrombie mob has ever had. But otherwise JUST like that).

And it usually culminates in me getting up suddenly and going for a long, long run, by myself. But with a heavy pack full of tech I’m not very well equipped to go out for a long run these days.
