This has been quite the eventful day! After staying the night in Durango, Colorado, we left for Arizona. The show today was in the town of Page, which was only about four hours away- at least, according to the GPS. We're pulling a huge trailer loaded to the gills with show equipment, so four hours for everyone else means more of a six hour drive for us.
Not a major issue, though- Colorado to Arizona is quite a scenic drive! There are huge mesas everywhere, reminiscent of all the old Western movies:
We continued on to Page, Arizona. We arrived in time to set up at Faith Bible Chapel. This was a nice big area with some great lighting. The show was awesome- these folks were a lively crowd!
So, after everything was finished, we were preparing to head inside and I was greeted by a member of the church. Have you ever heard the name Jarrett Edwards? Jarrett is a professional bass fisherman and has his own outdoors-themed TV series. He's also a member of this church and a super nice guy! After the show, Jarrett did something amazing. He gave me some gift cards worth a VERY substantial amount to Best Western hotels. When we're on the road for such a long time as this, hotel costs can add up ridiculously quick. This was a huge blessing! You should check out Jarrett's show- he's a genuinely nice person. Thanks again Jarrett!
Tonight's accommodations are awesome. We're staying in a Bed and Breakfast owned by Pastor Manny, the lead Pastor of the church. Manny and his wife Brenda own "Canyon Colors" and it's a great place to stay if you're ever in the area. They take care of your every need. Brenda also makes a full breakfast! We just had some of the best homemade ice cream we've ever tasted, and the beds look quite comfortable. Thanks Pastor Manny!
It's just incredible how blessed we've been on this tour. So many people have done so much for us. Again, I can't stress enough that there are more good people out there than you'll ever know. You won't hear about that in the media, because that doesn't sell newspapers, but it's true. We've truly met some amazing people who have been a major blessing to us.
We're finished with 46 shows! Only four more to go- Hawaii is in sight!
