Travel Day 3: Arkansas to New Orleans

Last night we stayed at Chad’s studio. He’s got a pretty nice set up. He showed Craig all his equipment and how he was using the Mac to run his whole studio. He was using the software Reason to do a lot it. Craig was really impressed by how Chad had built a separate room with a viewing window for recording vocals. We also got to hear a song where Lisa rapped. The studio was a relatively good sized building, but definitely needed some work. We were greeted by their friends cat who was in need of a meal. I shared my Cheetos with her. She was a very very pretty orange tabby about 10 months old, and very affectionate. We left Lisa and Chad early this morning. Lisa had to head off to work and Chad was off to […]

Destination 2: Ozarks, Arkansas

It was amazing crossing over the border from Missouri to Arkansas, like two completely different places. Fayetteville was really cool!!! I never thought I’d be uttering those words, Arkansas is cool. We arrived last night in Fayetteville and met up with Lisa at the Circuit City as previously planned. We then went into downtown Fayetteville. The main area of Fayetteville is a lot like Reston Virginia, very new, with everything you could think of. The downtown is beautiful. Dickson Street was great, lots of clubs, restaurants, shops and very cool architecture. It was a very happening place on a Saturday night, music booming from every place, people everywhere. We finally found parking and ate a pizza place. Then we left and took the very long drive out to Lisa and Chad’s. The road out to Lisa and Chad’s well, very […]

flat, boring, flat, boring

Well what can I say Indiana, Illinois and Missouri are flat and boring. Well Missouri actually had some nice hills. And oh my god this state never ends!!! Today I did most of the driving. The rock formations in Missouri are really cool. Back in New England everything is granite here, the rocks are very tan and warm toned. Saw some very interesting billboards. Lots of “Exotic Dancers, Adult Videos, Adult Super Store” billboards. But then right next to those would be “Pornography Destroys Lives, Pornography Hurts All”. Followed by the “Find Eternity, Find Jesus” and “JESUS” and “Repent in the Lord Jesus”. And the largest cross I have ever seen in my entire life. Passing through St. Louis was really cool. Got to see the big arch, it was really beautiful. Big although for some reason in my head […]

Destination 1: Indianapolis and a midwestern HondaSUV meet

Woke up around 7:30 am (EST) at a rest stop in Ohio. Switched drivers, and continued on to get breakfast and gas. Amazing out here, people get together for breakfast at Burger King. I don’t think I’d ever see that back in CT, especially on a weekend. Off to Indianapolis from there. Now I had completely forgotten about the time zone change. So we got to the Indianapolis Museum of Art at 9:30 am (EST) and I was like, hey where is everyone. So I gave Paul a ring on his cell, and I got to talk to Paul who then said, oh I bet you didn’t realize the time change. So for once in life I was really early! Paul and his wife Paula showed up very shortly. They are really great people, very very nice! Paul’s V is […]

Silver Bullet

Well we kicked off the road trip, with a few hitches. I forgot my medication at home, then realized the house key was with my Mom, so we did not get on the road until 7:30 pm. The view from in NY was beautiful, a nice sunset to start off the trip. The bugs almost killed my poor V. So much for detailing it. My windsheild looks like a mass suicide. We drove all night until 4:30 AM. Pennsylvania had almost no one. We made it to Ohio at 1:40 AM. And continued through just an hour short of Indianapolis. I was able to watch a movie on the laptop. I also used my new cell phone and the bluetooth feature with the laptop to chat with a few HondaSUV members.
