It’s 11:30 at night. We left Sherman, Texas this morning at around 9:30 am; just arrived in Holbrook, Arizona for the night. Of course, we are tanked up on coffee and wide awake…uh oh. Not good. Our goal is to arrive in Ojai around 4:30 tomorrow afternoon, which means we’ll be getting up at 6 am to drive. That sounds like a lot of activity, but do keep in mind that we are just sitting for hours and hours while we’re driving. It’s quiet and restful with great scenery and lots of great satellite radio. I am always up for a road trip. It’s just part of some gypsy blood that I must have.
Tonight we heard Jim Lauderdale and Buddy Miller’s radio show – which is awesome – and he interviewed Derek Trucks & Susan Tedeschi who have just released a new album. I haven’t heard of this couple before but I appear to be in the minority. They won a Grammy for best blues album in 2012 and are both consummate musicians. Susan has an amazing voice and Derek is an impressive lead guitarist. The cuts on their newest album were fabulous. Here is an example of a song from the 2012 album that will knock your socks off:
Okay, I am going to try to slow down this caffeine buzz by taking a shower. We are getting up early for the rest of the trek.
I hope you’re having a relaxing Memorial Day weekend.
I’ll be checking in with you again tomorrow.
