I'm the first one up.. YAY!! I win..... Basically, I need to get some work done, so I set my alarm for 7 AM. We'll leave at 9:30 AM for our last show in Alexandria, VA.. We've been told that traffic is gonna be hell, so the early head start will hopefully save me from losing it.

We are staying at Pats house from the band Ghost of Lester Bang. Nobody is here and I'm a little scared, but that's ok. This house has a kitchen on the first and second floor. They must do a lot of cooking. By the way, living on Long Island costs a ton if you drive to the city. Bridge tolls and road tolls and argghhh.. All these east coast shows are costing us a fortune. Not to mention gas is at $2.59 right now. DAMN!!

There were three bands last night. All great and all swell guys. But for some reason I was so tired. Maybe because I've been going non-stop for the last 30 days?? Maybe it's because I've eaten so much BBQ that my body can't take any more cured meats?? Hmmm... It's hard to tell, but I was struggling to make it through the evening. Everyone went to another house down the road to go swimming afterwards, but I was too tired to partake in the festivities. BAH....

So one more day y'all.... I'm flying home tomorrow. What a trip. Not looking forward to the boat load of work that awaits me at asian man. sigh..
Peace, mike park
