ATTN: UK UK UK UK UK!!!!
To my brothers and sisters over in the UK. I'm looking for a huge favor here. Would anybody be willing to pick me up at London Heathrow on either the 10th or 11th of November and drive me to some shows on Nov. 11th-Nov. 15th. If you can do this, I will give you so much free stuff, plus I will give you free tickets to any or all of the Alkaline Trio shows that I am doing. Of course I will pay for gas and will be your best friend. Seriously, I will hook you up big time. Let me know if this is something that someone would be willing to do or can do. Just shooot me an email at mikeasianman@aol.com

9:44 AM
I'm sitting at the Embree household in Seal Beach, California. In one hour I will depart for Cal State Fullerton where I will play an acoustic show on Campus. And then it's straight north back to the Bay Area. I hope to home by 8 PM tonight. We'll see how it goes.

Yesterday consisted of doing nothing. Which was good. Eating plenty of Burritos and just watching baseball. Steve Borth was at matt's house which was an added bonus. Seeing him is always a highlight for me. The sun was scorching yesterday and I can already see it's going to be insanely hot today. Hopefully the van can take the heat on our 385 mile journey home. Perhaps we'll bypass the Air Conditioner and roll down the windows. The hot air pumping through the van as we perspire. Sound sexy?? Yes, it is.

A couple riders have asked if they can come up north, so I'm bringing home a few more people. We'll have 5 in my van, which is fine. Hopefully they can enjoy the bay area and all it's glory. Here are the vitals for the bike trip.
