Beards, Blunders and BBQs

Beards, Blunders and BBQs

Hey Team,

It’s been a fun-filled week of catching up with family and friends as I pass through the First Place State. And it’s an incredible pick-me-up to see all of the people that have been so close to me for so long and to hear that they support everything I’m doing. Plus, I’m crazy stoked about jumping across the country again today to hit New Market, Virginia this weekend for an epic Civil War reenactment.

What does all this mean?

1. I have enough hair on my face to shave off and build a scale model of a chinchilla thanks to the “beard” I’ve been growing for the reenactment.

2. Not only do I not have ANY footage from this week but I wouldn’t have time to edit the hypothetical footage anyway so…no podcast today and it may just have to wait until next weeks Civil War podcast.

BUT after this weekend it’s going to be a whirlwind trip, up and down the east coast, chocked full of list crossing. So I don’t anticipate this happening again. Also, this should be the last of the time spent on the right (as in “not left” not “correct”) coast as just about everything has a pretty solid lead lined up now so it’s just a matter of time before I get around to each objective.

Things are looking up, Team!!!

Last thing: Quick shout out to the Totally Rad Show team for a great time at Dan’s birthday BBQ last night! Happy Several-Days-After-Your-Birthday, Dan!

OH! AND, Congratulations on being ALMOST as good as me at ping-pong, Jeff.

I’m done.

  1. Yeah, I was talking about this next trip being the last time on the East (right) coast but that does sound a little awkward now that I reread it.

  2. I think I’m supposed to be part of the South…which side was Virginia on? Shhh…don’t tell the reenactors I don’t already know this.

  3. Hey Brett,

    Virginia unfortunately fought for the South. In fact, Richmond was the capitol of the CSA for the majority of the war.

    Any chance you’ll make it down to C’ville while in VA?

  4. You know what? I just realized that I don’t think you acknowledged your 300th day trekking! Slacker, that was 16 days ago. You just didn’t want to write anymore poems eh?

  5. If you didn’t know about Virginia you sould probably do your wickiwhatchacallit and check out both R.E.Lee&Jeff Davis, your target will be blue and you loose! Sorry.

  6. @jenninva They’re evening training me to use blanks today so I don’t hurt anyone…like myself.

    @Popamtrekker There will be no losing here if I get to be in command! Rewriting history is #51!

  7. If Brett’s aim is as bad as his beard, they wouldn’t have to worry about him using live rounds! Ouch!
