I’M BACK !!!
This leg of my cross the country corner to corner trip was just over 10 k miles, 7563 miles by car and just over 3000 miles on a cruise to Alaska. The first leg was to Southernmost Point USA in Key West Fl. I was there Feb 16th as part of the Sunsport Gardens Mid winter festival and AURA road trip. That was a warm up 1850 miles. I was in Athens for a few weeks and then the Human Rights Festival. I started at 5 pm Fri and ended 4:03 am Mon May 2nd. I went home slept, packed and left Fri for Port Angeles, Wa.
I was in Thermopolis Wy Mon 1800 miles from home last Mon the 20th when I knew it was time to come home. I had achieved so many of the things I’ve wanted to do for most of my life I had just hit a point where I knew I was at the pinnacle of the trip. I found two 63 million year old dinosaur bone fragments. I’ve wanted to do that ever since I was a kid. I returned to Athens last Thurs evening. I was without internet for almost 6 weeks and very little phone service so wasn’t even sure of the day of week it was when I returned. For perspective, my friend John Miley asked if I would record Chrystal Leonard and him at the Globe that night. So I’m driving into town to record and I am on the phone with a friend and I remarked to him about the amount of traffic in town. He then said of course, it’s AthFest! I had no idea it was happening.
Anyway you can’t believe the things I have seen and done since I was here last. I can’t believe a lot of it myself. That is going to to be all I have time for now. I promise I’ll tell all in detail with pictures but understand I have 1,617 pictures to sift through.
I have a few shows from AthFest I’ll try to post this week. I’ll be at a 4 day party this weekend trying to catch up on my rest,
I hope y’all have a safe and Happy 4th of July.
Happy birthday Momma. I love you.
Music is my meditation.
I hope to see y’all at the shows.
Peace and Love,
