We just arrived in Aspen, Colorado. Very pretty drive from Denver, winding up green canyons towards the snow-capped Rockies. However, there was a mountain road closed on the way, and our crew fell prey to it. Johnny and Bree had to turn around an take a 90 minute detour; but Darin and Justin, our boys in the truck, had an interesting off-roading adventure that I suspect falls outside Penske’s rental conditions! Seems they came to the roadblock, their GPS unit had a bright idea they could take a direct route to Aspen that turned out to be 20 miles of dirt road. Not the greatest thing for my equipment. But here we are, in a luscious resort hotel that we got cut price because the ski season’s over and the summer season has yet to begin. As Lunesse pointed out, this tour is bookended rather nicely: Malibu and Aspen. It doesn’t get much better than that.
I’ll write later about our last show. Should be a party atmosphere tonight!
