Adventures of the Modern-Day Hitchhiker

Update: Brian the Pilot & Zek's Treks

Hi all!

Just wanted to give everyone a quick update on our lives. Brian is now at Officer Candidate School, training to be a pilot, and Zekee just started a new job with the United Service Organization (USO) in Kuwait. Zekee has started a solo travel site, so if anyone is interested, follow along Zek’s Treks on Tumblr (zekstreks.tumblr.com), Facebook (facebook.com/ZeksTreks) or Twitter (@ZeksTreks)! Hope everyone is doing well!
