Horseplay

This blog is from yesterday, but I’m just now getting around to posting it…

It’s been a couple days since my last blog, but I have my reasons. We have now spent two nights on the bus, and the first night was a little rough. The Pennsylvania Turnpike is one of the worst and most expensive roads to drive on, and it makes for a bumpy sleep. With each bump, I would jerk awake because I was having memories of the van wreck that I was in. I didn’t sleep to well that first night.

As I mentioned in the last blog, our bus is a little worn out. Another reason for the bad sleep was all of the rattling happening throughout the bus. However, with a Phillips screwdriver and some strategically placed gaff tape, rattles can be eliminated. Sleep on the second night was much better.

Our show last night was at a Casino. Still no sound check. It went a little better, but still not the best. Not to worry though. Tonight’s show went really well… probably because we ACTUALLY GOT A SOUND CHECK!!! Amazing how those things help.

The tour has been pretty fun thus far. Austen and I went on a little run today and then he and Matt played some horseshoes.



I feel it is important to add here that the Creed guys, as well as their wives and the crew, are all pretty cool. We had dinner with the band and the wives (minus the Stapps) and then quite a few went out and hit the tables. Scott Stapp (singer) keeps to himself, and I actually haven’t even met him yet—he even has his own bus.

So there is my update. Hope you enjoyed my lame video. For those of you wondering where this tour will take us, the link for all of the show dates is below. Goodnight to you all…

I used to live 15 minutes from your Aug. 14th stop in Noblesville, IN. Any plans on coming West?
