Thank you all.
For listening, for sharing, for caring.
I have been back in New Orleans about a month since completing my first tour of the Southeastern US. It was quite an adventure, and I miss everything about it but the driving (4400 miles, all told ;)
I'd like to express my thanks to the many people who made me feel welcome when I was traveling alone and far from home.
Many thanks to:
Gerard and Moni in MS
Jeremy and Cousin Wendy in GA
Joe, Keyamo, and Megan in WV
Sam, Kyle, and Uncle Dave in DC
Claude, Muram, and David in VA
Zachary, and that awesome couple that let me stay at their beach house in NC
Jillian in SC
And so many more.
And thank God for those national forests that nourished my soul when my body needed rest.
I'll be in New Orleans for the next two months working on my first professionally produced studio album (lead single drops in a month) and what I hope will be my second book. I'm raising funds to help finance these projects through Patreon. If you're interested in becoming a Patron (and getting hand-written letters from me) I encourage you to have a look at the site here.
In August I head to Oregon to play some shows on the west coast, do some camping, and make some money the old-fashioned way (landscaping). My plans for the fall are still developing, but I'll be sure to let you know. The tour really opened my mind to some new possibilities. If you live in VA or NC, look out because I might be relocating your way in the next year.
Alright, that's all for now. Thank you all for being the best part of the journey.
