The drive through south Montana and Idaho to Utah was spectacular. Gustaff and I made sure to stop when we saw anything worth soaking in. Our favorite was this frozen lake in Idaho called Henrys Lake. We arrived at our destination after daylight once again, but this time we were greeted with friends of Gustaff’s whom he hadn’t seen since before… Read more →

Arizona – Pleasantly surprised.
Our first stop in Arizona was at the Native American Baha’i Institute (NABI) in the Navajo Nation. We only got to spend one night there, but it was a wonderful night spent with some locals, staff at NABI, and a group of university students from Salt Lake, Utah. As soon as we arrived we joined a few friends for sunset… Read more →
Durango, Colorado – Finally some mountains!
Gustaff and I made a short stop for dinner in Santa Fe, New Mexico before heading up north to Colorado. We didn’t have a whole lot of time, but I got to have a brief look at Santa Fe’s downtown and it’s Latin influence. For dinner I had a beef burrito with really spicy green chili. It was delicious! As the… Read more →

We left towards Oklahoma on Thursday, March 3rd, planning to make a stop or two… Read more →
Austin – Splitting up, but making it work!
Around the middle of the week Gustaff had noticed a mistake we had made while booking our shows in Austin and Tyler, Texas. We had unfortunately doubled booked Friday, February 26. Our only way around this was for one of us to play in Tyler and the other in Austin. Therefore at 7:30 in the morning on the 26th Gustaff and I… Read more →
San Antonio – Our longest stay yet.
We arrived in San Antonio the evening of Sunday, February 21st to a home cooked meal and a luxury suite equipped with a giant bathtub (which I took advantage of every night). Day one in San Antonio was pretty laid back. Our main event of the day was performing at a children’s center in an apartment complex full of refugees… Read more →

Gustaff and I arrived at the Holiday Inn Resort (room donated by the owner) in Pensacola Beach just before sunset on February 16th.
