We have had a swell time this trip. A lot of it has been good pacing on the shows and driving and rest days, and a lot of it is we know some nice people in gorgeous places. After Bozeman we headed to Flathead Lake where the Gibson Family has a cabin and stayed up […]

We are meandering through Montana right now…we had the luxury of leaving Washington on Monday and not having a gig until tonight (Wednesday), so we’ve seen a movie in Spokane (The Campaign) and walked around the Cataldo Mission in Idaho and downtown Missoula. Now, back to work! But first…some ask Jana. Deborah asks: Does the […]

We had a great time in Bozeman, Montana on Thursday. We stopped by the Gibson Guitar factory to see if we might look around, and while they only do tours on Wednesdays, a nice employee named Jeremy took us through the factory anyway. We saw how a guitar gets made starting from a flat piece […]

Centennial, Wyoming

16, Aug 2012

Centennial is one of my favorite places to be. It’s about half an hour west of Laramie close to the Snowy Range Mountains. Susan’s cousins, Tony and Kelli and Baby Chance live here! Kelli and Jenn also own the Friendly Store…which encompasses a gas station, convenience store, cafe, bar, and motel all in one. Kelli […]

Mary Chapin Carpenter put out a call for photos for her Soul Companion videos…one of me and my Dad made it into video 2! Very cool. Thanks, MCC!

Colorado Views

13, Aug 2012

Being a Tourist

12, Aug 2012

As gorgeous as our drives are…and as cool as the places are we visit to play music, we often see a town at dusk, play a show, stay overnight, and leave in the morning. This leaves hardly any time to really get to know a place. I’ve been to Taos several times over the past […]

New Mexicania

7, Aug 2012

Pretty thrilled to be in my home state of New Mexico for almost a whole week. We have spent three days in Albuquerque and head to Taos and Red River this week. The weather is sublime considering there is no humidity and it’s under 100 degrees. I am having to drink water like a camel, […]

Touring Stuffs

6, Aug 2012

A week in and so far so good on the touring…we hit San Angelo, Amarillo, and Albuquerque.  We’ve had the chance to stay in Amarillo (Susan’s hometown) and Albuquerque (mine) for multiple days which is always nice. San Angelo was warm and Susan played with Ray Wylie Hubbard.  Maybe my first time merching next to […]
