Our show yesterday was in Vermont. Ever been there? We didn't really have time yesterday to see very much. Today, however, we drove across the entire state. They call it "The Green Mountain State", and I now understand why. I've never seen mountains so densely filled with trees:
We made it to New Hampshire relatively quickly. I like these Eastern states- easy to drive across! Everything was going just fine until we drove alongside a construction zone. Suddenly, there was a loud WHUMP from the trailer followed quickly by another WHUMP. I looked back and saw the metal fender, which is normally secured over the wheels, and it was flopping around free in the wind. we pulled over to find the fender almost completely ripped free from the trailer and the fender light torn off and gone. Turns out that a couple of construction cones somehow flew up and got lodged between the wheels and fender, and at that speed, it was enough to do some damage.
The show today was outdoors in beautiful downtown Concord, New Hampshire. Outdoor shows can be a challenge but we've done quite a few for the Cincinnati Zoo over the years. The crowd was lots of fun!
As a side note, I'm writing this from our hotel in Concord, New Hampshire. I just googled my name and I'm shocked at how many of these venues have listed our information online! Click here for a newspaper story that a reporter did for our New York appearance, and click here for a radio ad that they're running for our upcoming show in Tennessee. Lots out there!
So, tomorrow, it's Springvale, Maine. We're excited about going over to the East coast, having just recently been in the West. Atlantic Ocean, here we come!
