This is my first dispatch from the road. I was checking out Steve Martin’s tour journal earlier today and it inspired me, especially the part about the K-9 sweep before his shows.
Today we’re heading back to Austin after three weeks on the road and I can’t wait to get back home. On the way out of town today Jake had to stop at three different places just to stock up on New Glarus Totally Naked and Spotted Cow. For myself, I got beef jerky and Wisconsin cheese curds from our host last night at Leo & Leona’s in Bangor, Wisconsin, which is allowing me to sleep my way home…
The tour was overall a great success–not sure how the shows went, but I was able to see lots of sites and hit good parks and trails in 10 different states. Sometimes Elana takes pictures of me backstage, which is embarrassing, but I do feel it captures the spirit of the road.
We kicked things off in Marblehead, Massachusetts playing at the Me and Thee Coffeehouse (see my online interview with Sniff). We stopped by WKCR in New York City and WUMB in Chicago, and even Farm Fresh Radio just west of Middlebury, Vermont where I met some great cows.
In Chicago we stayed in Lincoln Park right near Wrigley Field and hit Hot Doug’s for some encased meat snacks on the way out of town. Looking forward to heading to California at the end of the month, so till then…..
