Initial Tour Plans

A lot of people have asked me, “where are you on your Tour?” Answer: not yet. Well, I’m at Tour HQ right now. “Where is Tour HQ?” ask some other people who want to know where Tour HQ is. Well people who want to know that, Tour HQ is my parents’ home in Omaha, where I’ve been staying for the past couple of months as I prepare everything.

But more about the Tour. The initial plan for the Tour is a kind of clover-leaf pattern covering the US, based out of Tour HQ. As a side note, why does a clover-leaf pattern have four leaves?

A normal clover. The so-called 'cloverleaf' pattern.

Probably because it’s extra good luck. Yay luck! Ok, four leaves it is:

  • Leaf 1: North (Jun-Jul)
  • Leaf 2: East (Jul-Aug)
  • Leaf 3: South (Aug-Sep)
  • Leaf 4: West (Sep-Oct)

North Leaf shall include such states as: [states to be determined soon]
East Leaf shall include such states as: [states to be determined soon]
South Leaf shall include such states as: [states to be determined soon]
Finally, the West Leaf shall include such states as: [states to be determined soon]

If you live in any of those states, and you’d like me to stop by, hit me up. I’ll do it. You know I’ll do it, too, because I’m crazy!

Housing

With the price of gas, I will certainly not be staying in hotels. Nor motels. My rule is: no -tels.

I will certainly be taking advantage of the incredible hospitality of all sorts of great friends (known and previously unknown) as I travel. It will also be a wonderful opportunity to use the excellent Couchsurfing service to find hosts as well as musicians to record.

Failing all of that, I will sleep in a box.* Alone. And it will probably rain.

If you’d like to host a responsible but awesome dude for a day or two this summer, hit me up! I’ll totally stay in your house.

* Note: it’s not a boxtel.
