Well, here's the deal- we didn't vanish! What happened is that the blog post for California was almost finished and when posting it online, while on the move, our internet went down. The next day we were overseas, where the internet REALLY didn't allow this to work, so we are just now getting back into a territory where I can post what happened! So, here's California, from July 20. Tomorrow evening, the grand finale: HAWAII!
Today was the final show for the continental USA!
California is incredible, but getting here today was an adventure. We woke in Las Vegas and set out early. Our destination in California was only 4 hours away. We followed I-15 for almost the entire trip.
Upon entering the state of California, we needed gas in a serious way! There really isn't much available out in the desert. So, we were happy when we saw a gas station in the distance! I WAS NOT, however, prepared for this:
We went on the the next town, Baker, and got out for lunch. It suddenly felt like we'd stepped into an oven! Directly behind us was this big thing:
Our show today was the final private performance of the tour. The folks in attendance had a great time! It's funny- most people at our shows know the particulars of the tour, but when you explain to them that you literally are doing 50 Shows in 50 States in 50 Days, they look at you like you're nuts!
So- tomorrow is the finale for this whole wild trip. We head to Honolulu, Hawaii, for show #50! It's crazy in that it feels like we just began in Alaska, but at the same time, that seems like 10,000 years ago. The tour really has gone quickly, as I suspected that it would. Stay tuned!
*Again, this entry was written July 20 but thanks to varying levels of internet access, I'm just now able to post it. Watch for the grand finale tomorrow- Hawaii!
