The West Coast Road Trip Tour – in review

It was fun. Grueling, but fun. We started on Saturday the 16th of August with a show at the San Diego Baha’i Center. My long-time co-worker Don McKay played videographer for me (so I can review my show for improvements). We spent the week visiting friends and family up the road through California, Oregon, & Washington. On Saturday the 23rd, I played at the Washington Baha’i History Museum. Zabine Van Ness is doing some great work there in the University District of Seattle. The next day I played at “Barnfest” in Gig Harbor, an event produced by my good friend Russ Salton. Russ helped me out with some lead guitar and harmony vocals on a few songs. It was great fun. On the way south, I played a “private” house concert for Jenn & Rob Head, friends from “way back in the day” and a most-talented couple. Next we stayed and played at the home of Barbara & Michael Goodwin. Great crowd, lots of fun. On Thursday, I picked guitar with my friend Chuck Thrapp in North Fork, CA – just south of Yosemite. Pretty country. And on that moonless Thursday night, the stars there were brighter and more numerous than I had seen since I was a boy scout. After a visit with Soroush E. in Brea, CA and a visit with Dr. “Chips” Hough in Santa Ana, we made our way home to Casa Grande. After two-weeks of driving, there’s nothing more comfy than your own bed.

Thanks Don for shooting the movie!
