Mexican food in Augusta

Good morning Friends, 

I write you this morning from my motel room here in Columbia, South Carolina. I arrived last night after completing my gig in Augusta, GA. I am happy that I was able to score the job so quickly. I pray that the road ahead continues to be as successful.

I wish I had more time to explore the city and state more thoroughly.  It was a beautiful place to visit with plenty of history and points to interest. But unfortunately time is money and it seems that the only time I have a chance to see the sights is when I am waiting on a pending gig. Still I'm enjoying the thrill of seeing new place for the first time and making new friends along the way! 

One thing I'm discovering is that aside from the culture and physical differences that separate us, people from one side of the country to another all share the same human qualities. Good and bad people exist everywhere. The hopes, fears and dreams we all possess reside in the heart, not the area we live in. I realize that there is many issues that still separate people, having driven through quite a few economically challenged areas in all the states I've visited. But the opportunity for most of us to make our life what we want it to be still exist in this country. I'm living the dream myself.

So long for now friends, I have to get my butt looking for a job! Thanks for taking the time to check in.

Notes from the first two months.

Hello friends, 

I hope everyones weekend was safe and enjoyable. I myself had a most merorable time in the Tampa area for the fourth.

After spending the last thirteen days working and playing in Florida, the time had arrived for me to depart towards the north. Starting with Georgia and eventually working my way to the most northen point, Maine. Now with my batteries charged, I hit the trail with a renewed and fresh enthusiasm. Thanks goes out to my friend Yolie for her hospitality and for saving her honey do list for me. As well as being a wonderful tour guide and companion. Unfortunately for me, she is the last person I know going forward, so I plan to see many more campgrounds and cheap motels on the horizon.

I write you this post from the beautiful city of Augusta, Georgia. The great news is that I have already scored my CL gig today and will stay another day to complete it. I will write the story on my Fifty gigs page tomorrow or Friday. Then on to the state of South Carolina and the town of Columbia.

So as of today I have been on the road now for two months and a day. I have covered thirteen states and well over 3,000 miles! I have slept in...

10- Rented rooms

10- RV/ Campgrounds.

5- Truck stop parking lots.

3- Private homes.

2- Kidney stones. (Haha)

1- Resort.

For a combined total of sixty two nights. With 37 states or more yet to come. I have to say it's all been worth it and I already have so much to remember in just a short time. Thanks to all the good people who have been so supportive in helping me stay focused and positive! From my family and friends back in Tucson, to the CL posters who have hired me, and of course all of you faithful friends who follow my adventure on line. Also thanks to my cousin Louis from Albuquerque for making it possible for me to stay in Park City and Santa Fe.  And especially to three lovely ladies who have opened their heart and homes to me on my travels, my daughter Vanessa in Dallas, my friend Cathy from the  'Llorona' clan in San Antonio and my dear friend Yolanda in St Petersburg, FL.

Have a great night to all and thanks again for your time and support!
