to the chaotic and often strange life of a Quasi, Clumsy Spiritual Warrior, Dan Abernathy. This is the weekly Newsletter where I share with you my voice, be it in words, art, or my collections of oddities, fascinations, desires and obsessions. Here I will make available 98% of all my perspectives, be they fluid and random, meandering and incomplete, or things I have completed and offering. They other 2% I keep to himself, archived and a gift for the scholars and naysayers to decipher later on. This will all be delivered to you via the web, whether I am roaming the road in his converted 1991 International school bus, The Chool Bus, home in Pinedale, Wyoming or briefly hanging my hat in another dusty corner of the world.

The Chool Cast on C-H-Double O-L,

coming from you from the Chool Bus, a 1991 converted International school bus that I call my house. The road is my Home!.

The Chool Cast Episode 8

Is Now Live!

With Greg Ptasnik


After a bit of a stall The Chool Cast is back and climbing towards subculture notoriety in the finest of underground ways, the Chool Cast is the podcast you do not want to pass over. It is produced and recorded by Dan Abernathy while traveling the back roads, highways and byways in a converted 1991 International school bus named the Chool Bus.

        In this episode I have a conversation with Greg Ptasnik, retired school teacher and owner

of Lakeside Lodge in Pinedale, Wyoming, Mr. Ptasnik also has a nice way with his opinions. We had a great conversation on the banks of Fremont Lake, in the Chool Bus with a nice bottle of Scotch.


A huge Thanks to my sponsors, Sellers Real Estate and Jeanne Hendrickson who supported the podcast by using the Donate button on the Chool Cast Page.

The Chool Cast can be found on ITunes and Soundcloud
