OUR GIANT PASTEL COUNTRY


This is the giant pastel USA that's on my wall. I've been consulting it regularly, along with Margo (from our label Organic) to see what our routing is for the Fall tour. One shining fact has emerged from our study of the pleasingly pale Midwest: distances are long.

But I already knew that. In 2005 I was driving from Lincoln, NE to Jefferson City, MO and I happened to leave my wallet at a truck stop just outside of Lincoln. I don't have to tell you that we were hours down the road before I realized it. But some nice lady from the Sheetz or Flying J or whatever it was mailed me my wallet so that I could fly on home from Chicago when the tour was over. That was real nice. I was going to remember her name, but I suck.
