In a few hours, I’ll be sitting up nice and pretty on a greyhound bus bound for Miami. There’s about 25 stops on the way. This is not going to be fun. First of all the bus leaves at 6:30am out of Charlotte and to get our ticket, they recommend you arrive at the station an hour early… 5:30… which means we leave Morganton at 4:00 at the latest.
Wednesday I went up to Boone to visit my bro and hang out one last time before the trip… being that I brought up my guitar and amp, I tried giving some old friends in the area a call and we ended up getting in touch and had a good jam session. Ben came out with the sax, Ryan played bass, Michael and Daniel traded off on drums, and my brother playing Djembe and Congas. Gooooood spontaneous wacked-out stuff. I’d say everyone “jelled” that night.
We found and purchased some very inexpensive tickets to Ecuador yesterday on Taca! Leaving out of Miami on March 2nd, return flight set for July 15. We have to figure out how to get to Miami… and the solution was a one-way ticket on a 20-hour greyhound bus ride from Charlotte to Miami (yikes!) which is looking like a little taste of similar things to come south of the border.
