Soul2Soul Summer Rolls On…

July 31, 2006

My visit to Nashville, TN, the country music capital of the world (yeehaw ya’ll!) was AWESOME. The cowgirl in me really needed and appreciated this stopover, and it is a city I will definitely be back to visit. I got in around 3pm and hooked up with Iris, Mary, Colleen and Mama Karen for lunch. […]

The Inevitable Crash…

July 28, 2006

Relax — I’m not referring to a crash in the automobile sort of way, lol. I’m talking about 20 days on the road finally catching up to me physically… Let’s face it – I’m not in my 20’s anymore. I’m thirty years young and just can’t hang like I used to in college. Can’t drink […]

Coast to Coast Baby!!!

July 26, 2006

Well this has been yet another WONDERFUL day of missions accomplished… I swear, the stars have just lined up for me on so many levels that I can hardly believe it sometimes. I’ll be driving down the road, and remember some random adventure from the day before, and the hugest smile will spread across my […]

Destined for Destin…

July 25, 2006

Today was the best day on the road I’ve had since the Nudist Hot Springs in Colorado, lol. I decided to leave New Orleans a day early because of bad weather (torrential rain), lack of stuff to do (it’s just not the same ya’ll) and an overall vibe of not feeling “safe” (it didn’t help […]

I Love the South!

July 25, 2006

I’ve been making my way through the South since the last time I wrote. I LOVE IT! I’m not sure if its because I came from the hot, dry, flat, brown topography of Texas, but when I was driving through Northern Louisiana on 1-20, it was just gorgeous, gorgeous country… Very lush, very green, a […]

You Can Find Me in the Club…

July 21, 2006

Houston has been a blast… Josiah is big ballin’ in a super bachelor mansion, so I’ve been chillun in major style and comfort. I have my own master suite complete with my own bathroom… Once again, its amazing what $180,000 will get you in Texas… My host in Houston is my boy Josiah, also known […]

Downtime in Austin

July 18, 2006

Austin, TX has been good for my soul. First of all, I’ve gotten to spend Quality time with my good friend Nicola… Nicola and I have been friends since the 8th grade. She moved to Vacaville in 9th grade, and then to Texas about 10 years ago. But she’s one of those friends that no […]

Work Hard, Play Harder

July 16, 2006

I am so exhausted… I’ve been in Dallas 3 days now, and have averaged about 5 hours of sleep each night. Cousin Doug seems determined to make a lush out of me, LOL. But I’m having lots of fun, so I suppose that’s all that matters. I arrived in hot-ass Dallas around midnight on Thursday […]

Utah and Colorado…

July 14, 2006

Well, I was too depressed the other night to blog about our time in Utah and Colorado, so forgive the delay. After a long day making our way through Arizona, we got into Utah really late Monday night. I was exhausted and our hotel was so far away, so we decided to cancel that reservation […]
