This blog is an account of Jacob and Mike's (Skippy) cross-country trip to move Jacob from Chicago, IL to Irvine, CA. We decided we'd document the trip by making a blog post for every hundred miles we drove, in addition to anything else of interest. There is a map that I made with a thumb tack in each place where we wrote a blog post.

Sunday afternoon is the new Saturday night

12:15PM EDT N42°21'56" W71°0'37"

So Amy, my wonderful roommate, picked me up from the airport so that I wouldn't have to take the T home; it was very much appreciated since I haven't slept and my neck still hurts a lot. We chatted a bit about my trip as I got home and put my stuff away and then I ran right out the door to catch the show.

The show was really small as a result of being Sunday in the middle of the day, but there was nice little crowd, predominated comprised of members of the earlier acts. As Danny put it, "I guess Sunday afternoon is the new Saturday night." I got a short video of them playing Bile them Cabbage Down, complete with Doug wailing away on his sweet foot-pedal cow bell.

After the show we went out to Dan's brother's place and had a BBQ out on the roof. It was a really neat deck out on the roof of his building. I had to fight the urge to climb out on to a billboard mounted on building, which he said would get him evicted.

I sat around and ate lots of food and listened to funny tales of twelve musicians and artists driving around Mexico in a van covered with bones. All of which you can read about on their blog Danny and Dan played a little bit in the kitchen and since I'm addicted to my new camera, I got another video.

So that's the end of my trip. Back to work tomorrow.

They were as always. Have you been to a show since Doug started using the cow bell? I asked him about it. It's not new but he hasn't played with it for a long time so it's essentially new on all the songs. It's really great.

Anyway, I'm going to post the next show later. Probably on a new blog since it's not part of my trip. There were tons of little kids at the show and at one point they had seven little girls backup dancing on the wall behind them. It ruled.
