Life on the road is hectic.  Long nights, little sleep, and a very tight schedule can wear down on you faster than you think.  That being said, I wouldn’t trade any of this experience for world.  I’ve met so many great people and become family with my fellow bus mates and artists.  From the stage set up to the lighting to the music, everyone has been at the top of their game.  Amidst the rough and tumble of the road, some things are bound to go wrong, or in my case, equipment getting damaged or abandoned. The second night in Gainesville the loud bass knocked one of the handles off my ProAim rig sending it crashing to the floor, broken!  In Tallahassee I left my Cannon charger plugged into the wall (it’s probably still there!).  The latest happening came in Nashville.  After every show I immediately return to the bus and dump my nightly footage onto my computer.  This time, however, the slot for my CF memory card wasn’t registering the card!!  I looked inside at the microscopic pins to see one of them was bent, and proceeded to freak out.  My trepidation was in vain this time, as one of the lovely Nashville locals just happened to have multiple sized safety pins on her and a steady hand, and immediately bent the pin back for me (Thanks Stacy!).  Couldn’t believe it.  We’ve met so many cool people in every city and we have so much more to explore. Can’t wait for what’s next!
