Welcome aboard the naturist bus tour of America.
We have no air conditioning and it’s so hot we are all stripped down to the bare essentials to try and keep cool. There’s no time to even stop for food… we might just make the show in time but only just… as long as we keep rolling. We make Forth Worth / Dallas at 5:10 and still have four hours to go!!!! The phrase “Houston We Have A Problem” springs to mind!!!!
We eventually get to Houston with about 30 minutes to spare. It’s called a ‘throw and go’ in the trade. We don’t have time to set up Mark’s kit so he uses the opening act’s drums. It turns out to be a great show. There is a spring in our step caused by the day’s frustrations and we all raise our game for the crowd of BC devotees who have waited so patiently to see the band.
Alvaro from San Antonio (who is a serious LHS volunteer and responsible for finding 20 of our 600 matches), is on hand to sign people to the register and he takes me to Austin after the show.
We chat non stop for the entire 3 hour journey and even manage to fit in a stop at Buckee’s legendary Austin truckstop. I get to James Chippendale’s house and am so glad to see a bed!!!
