Country Inn & Suites Athens
Travel Blogs from Athens
Drove through some driving rain for a few hours, but made it to Madison, GA. It'll be only three hours to home on Sunday. It's so nice we can park our traveling hotel room safe and secure in a Walmart parking lot whenever we need to! Of course another typical Switzer travel experience ...

The show went ahead. Truckers are a band not to be defeated, even by events like this one tearing holes into their hearts.

The atmosphere was sombre; he knew the 40 Watt and the 40 Watt knew him.

The one thing everyone was agreed on was that Craig would've been happy that everyone was together, he got to play his shows and be with people that he loved, and that loved him.
It's ******* great to be alive...
... Dave returned and told us about his encounter, the decision was made that Cooley was in fact stalking Dave.
So that's pretty much what we've done today. We're currently having some down time before the show. We're all tired but quietly excited... I guess we don't really know what to expect from the show tonight but time will tell. I'm gonna down this Jack and coke, spray some deodorant and head out to the 40 Watt... DBT are on at 11pm...
See y'all at the rock show
