    Last update was March 11th that I have seen. I believe there will be at least one more episode if not two. Just hoping that the "Everywhere Man" does not leave us mere mortals hanging.

    Edited to add that Bret finished the ride last year, but has not finished his account of the ride.

    Maybe he will make us all buy the book to get the finished story. Which I will gladly buy if he does ever publish his story.

    I mean, a lot of people have other things on their minds at the moment, and that may apply to our Brett as well. I see that Nebraska doesn't currently have a stay-at-home order, so presumably he's still busy forging rings in Mount Doom (if indeed Mt. Doom is in Nebraska... dunno, seemed pretty flat from the photos I've seen).

    Brett might have been everywhere, but he hasn't been there....:D

    No, the closest we come is a Directed Health Measure, which effects all 93 counties. http://dhhs.ne.gov/Pages/COVID-19-Directed-Health-Measures.aspx Please remember that Nebraska only has less than 2 million people in the state. I'm in the same part of the state as Wingmom, we have 7 cases and 2 deaths, officially in our county.

    Brett is doing good. He’s really busy with work right now since their usual business is slow, they are working to branch out and it’s stuff that’s consuming a lot of Brett’s time. He’ll be back as soon as he gets a break, like most of us his life is a bit upside down at the moment.

    Imagine spending about three years on the road and returning to “normal” life in 2020 with all that’s happening...

    Think how bad it would have been had this occurred while he was in South America!

    Which is what happened to itchyboots. He was lucky to have finished when he did.

    Any idea when Brett is going to finish this thing? Inquiring minds want to know.

    I haven’t talked to him in about a month. I’ll have to give him a call this week sometime and see how he’s doing.

    2 weeks ago I found the time to putz around the garage for few hours for the 1st time since last fall.
    (stored the snow blowers, oil and blade change on the lawn mower etc.)
    I had the Ipod on random and up came BR5-49's One Long Saturday Night which I hadn't heard in some time. What a great band!
    I'll be supporting Chuck Mead and that group as best I can in the coming pay-days. Hope everyone keeps in mind that along with many folk, your fave musicians have lost their primary source of income due to Covid.
