We got lucky and found a nice hotel tonight so I can hop on before I get off to sleep...The trip has been going very well and we are looking for some cheap campgrounds but we'll take what we can get until the New Year!

Happy New Year if I don't hear from you!

My work situation hasn't been very inspiring lately so I knew I should at least try for something new. Could I do it? It was worth a shot.

Sam, Jes and I all left around 4:30am last Sunday to get to the venue at 9am to Audition at 10am, which got pushed waaaay back to 4pm. We all w…
