Day 1 of tour brought us 2 flat tires on our trailer. One happened after every business was closed, so we ended up sleeping in the van in a Wal-Mart parking lot in London, Ohio.
After getting said tire fixed, we blew the other one a few hours later in Washington, Pennsylvania.
8 hours later, we made it New Jersey. Dropped the van and trailer at a friend’s house, and hopped a train to New York City.
Upsides, so far: Quality hang time with the guys, dumbass jokes, whiskey, beer and karaoke in Ohio, and having time to hang in NYC.
Downsides: Spending a lot of money on the trailer, having to cancel our show in Manhattan, due to said troubles, being so far behind schedule, feeling disgusting.
I guess it’s all pretty standard for touring, though. PARTY!!!!
