The Update

The Update

Hey Team,

The site is running a little behind and the departure date is practically here. Just a few last minute preparations and then it’s off into the unknown (and of course by unknown I mean completely known and thoroughly explored by people that aren’t me) for an indeterminate amount of time. So, phase one brings you all to this myspace page a.k.a. the temporary home of The next phase is the part where you check in every day for the opportunity to live vicariously through my adventures (and more than likely my misery).

For those of you who are chronically out of the loop or not “in the know” I’ll be traveling mostly by train completely at the whim of my list until every single item is crossed off!

On a couple of side notes, I’ll be traveling mostly by train because:

1. I REALLY don’t like driving.
2. It’s ecologically friendlier (come on people, save the planet!).
3. It’s cheap! (relatively.)

Also, in addition to the formal list of objectives one of my overarching goals is to not spend a single dime on lodging…hence your responsibility to live vicariously through my occasional misery.

And finally, this isn’t just about a list of things I want to do. Mostly I’ve been driven by a desire to see what America is up to these days. She never calls, she never writes, so I guess it’s up to me to stay in touch. So, in the vein of John Steinbeck or Jack Kerouac (please keep in mind that both those guys were amazing writers and I just design stuff) here I go!

Okay, I’m done.


P.S. I’d love to pop in and say, “Hi” to everyone whenever I’m in your little corner of the world!

  1. Hey Bret,

    My name is Sonia, my husband’s name is Jeremy. Jeremy takes care of your moms yellow page advertising. Eileen gave us your website and told us all about your amazing adventure. I was looking at your #1 request. The Salt River in Phoenix, AZ is really great to go tubing. Strap an ice chest full of drinks on an extra tube and your ready to go. Let us know if there’s anything we can do to help. 🙂
