Starting the drive back to Texas today.
It will be just me and Rick trading off driving, so it will take 2-3 days. Will update the last few days on this blog when time allows.
This has been a blast. Played some great shows with some great players: guitarist Matt Brooks, drummer Eric Rietman, guitarist James Willaman, drummer Steve Marks, drummer Sam Orrico, and of course Mr. Rick Hornyak. Met lots of great people and had lots of great fun!
Rick and I are still debating on whether to visit Mammoth Caves in Kentucky en route.
While that would be awesome, we both also have reasons to head home as quickly but safely as possible. Rick and his wife closed on a new house on this run, and I would like to get back home to my own life as well. I went through some huge changes on this run. Will talk about that later.
But all is not over for now with Rick Hornyak Band. We still have two shows this coming weekend in Rockport/Fulton TX on the coast with our good friend, drummer Ric Furley. That will be awesome.
Last night Rick and I could have had an end-of-tour, rip roaring drunk. But knowing the drive ahead of us and the fact that it's just the two us making said drive, we knew that would not have been a very good idea. But more about that later.
In the meantime, enjoy this old Mother Truckers video with yours truly on bass that Sam Orrico found and posted on Facebook \m/,
