Giants & Pilgrims Great North Central Tour: Day 1

We left Greeley, CO in a two car caravan heading towards Nebraska Friday, June 27th. Morale was high after breakfast burritos, morning pleasantries and luggage tetris.

During the first drive some things stood out worth writing here. One was our trumpet player, Craig Baserich, sharing some haikus he’d written about pizza:

Ate you for my lunch
Still can taste your dreamy sweat
Never wash my face

Hot, cheese, grease, sauce, meat
All of that on top of dough
Feed it to my soul

Frozen, take out, Mmm
Deep dish, thin crust, stuffed crust, Mmm
Mmm, Mmm, Mmm, Mmm, Mmm

What else do I like?
Apple, chicken, carrots, No
I also like cake

Morale was even higher after he shared all these. I was sore from laughing after the session.

In the evening we pulled into Omaha and had a tremendously lovely house concert with friend Laura Preston.

Below are a couple pictures. One from travels (our first day of tour being sponsored by the soon to return “pretzel bacon cheeseburger”) and one from our house concert.

Stay tuned for Day 2 log coming soon. After Day 2…

    I am soooooo very glad that I was at the Preston’s for last night’s show. I listened to the Almanac CD at least 10 times today as I drove around Omaha with errands. I had an opportunity to go to another concert tonight and I said, “No, I can’t leave last night’s vibe yet”. So, here I am, living in yesterday. I told Laura, that was a spiritual experience! THANK YOU! Btw, you guys are really funny and joyful to be around. Gotta go, NASCAR is on the t.v.
