Last Minute Costume Idea

Hey Team,

I know how stressful it can be to be scrounging around for a costume idea at the last minute. So, in an effort to make all your lives just a little bit easier I was able to dig up this pattern for a Halloween costume circa 1936. I’m here for you Team, call me a problem solver.

Glad I could help.

I’m done.

Brett.

If you enjoyed the last minute costume idea then feel free to provide some funds for my own costume!

Don’t let me stop you.

I Will Survive. Hey, Hey.

Hey Team,

Thanks for all the concern. I got a lot of emails and messages over the last twenty-four hours about last night’s double-failure. It kind of gives you one of those warm fuzzy feelings when you realize so many people are rooting for you.

But for the record, you don’t have to worry about this kid. Yes, I jumped into Amtrekker headfirst not know what to expect. But that’s kind of par for the course. Where’s the fun in life if everything is expected. And despite my ridiculously overdeveloped optimism I didn’t go into this so blind that I don’t expect the occasional disaster. Besides, disasters make the best stories, right?

I’m sure that won’t be the last frustratingly terrible day, but I recover quickly. It’s what I do. Plus, I have the added bonus of being the luckiest man alive. Somehow things will manage to work themselves out. My grandpa taught me that it’s not worth stressing over something you can’t change. So, right now all I can do is keep moving towards the next adventure. Which, after a little bit of downtime tomorrow to catch up on some editing so I can get that Three Card Monte podcast out, will More >

I Flunked Hitchhiking [podcast]

Hey Team,

Yesterday was pretty rough. I spent almost twelve hours either on a bus or waiting for a bus and didn’t have my first bite of food until 10 o’clock…at night. I also had my first big Amtrekker failure. And lucky you, you get to watch! Hope you enjoy my misery.

Should’ve Listened to Detective Thorn

Hey Team,

When I was in Orlando the other day I got to go through the Magic Kingdom for the first time since I worked there almost five years ago. I had a good time, but something was just a little off the entire time I was there.

I wouldn’t necessarily call my time at Disney World life changing but it was a pretty important era in the life of Brett and I made some really good friends while I was in Florida (A few of them have even made appearances on the podcast). And as I walked around the park something seemed to be missing. The “weird” was driven home when I visited Big Thunder Mountain, the ride I worked on while doing my college internship there.

Everything still looked the same…but all of the faces were wrong. It’s not even like I expected everyone to still be there but I still felt kind of uncomfortable. Uncomfortable enough to attempt to express the feeling in a text to Shawn, a good friend of mine that I worked with on the mountain (you guys know him from the firefly podcast). He summed it up better than I could so here’s a direct quote:

“There’s More >

I Think I Stepped in Knowledge

Hey Team,

I’m in New York right now waiting to go to Six Flags Great Adventure in New Jersey this weekend with one of the girls who 1. HAPPENED to be staying with the same people I was in Orlando and 2. HAPPENS to work for Six Flags. It was important to make it back up here this weekend because Kingda Ka, the fastest roller coaster in the country (#36!), only has two more days of operation between now and April. Today and tomorrow.

In the meantime I’ve been slowly exploring more and more of New York and, reluctantly, I have to admit that this place sucks less each time I visit.

Yesterday I wandered past the New York City Public Library and felt compelled to check out the scene. From the outside it had the typical Greek architecture of a hundred year old building made to impress people (which it did). And as I walked up the marble steps I could feel the deep troughs worn into them by years of people questing for knowledge.

Granted, my shoes are wearing kind of thin.

Honestly though, it kind of gave me that warm fuzzy feeling to know that so many people had walked up those More >

Broken News

Hey Team,

I don’t have much time to write my own update today. LUCKILY, Cory Golden, reporter extraordinaire, and the Davis Enterprise have come to my rescue. What timing!

Here’s the link to a .pdf: Davis Enterprise Article

Enjoy!

I’m done.

Brett.

P.S. The Biketoberfest Podcast is done I just need to find a faster connection so I can upload the beast. Expect it tonight or tomorrow morning…probably tonight. Fun!

The Green Kid

Hey Team,

This week has definitely been unique and I have to admit I’m a little frustrated right now. So many interesting things have happened that I’d love to be writing about and there’s just not enough room on the page. Hopefully over the next couple days it’ll all spill out, but there’s SO much editing to do too.

“What? Why’s that? You just have the Biketoberfest footage to deal with, right…right?”

“HA! That’s where you’re wrong, stupid misinformed disembodied voice!”

I’m in Orlando right now staying with an old friend from my Walt Disney World days and it struck me just before I got here that way back when (it’s been five years since I’ve worked for the mouse on this coast) there used to be a street performer that worked out on the Boardwalk region of the resort performing con games.

“What kind of con games?”

Will someone tell that creepy voice to stop interrupting?

Three card Monte, of course! It was a total long shot but we headed over to the Boardwalk and asked around. It was raining so we figured any performers would have packed it in already anyway but eventually we ran into a guy that was dressed like someone that I More >
