portland is sort of a blur because i was so wiped out from the long drive from the bay area. yes, i drove the whole way by myself. yes, i am bad ass.
our big outing the next day was a walk across the bridge to whole foods. funny, i feel like i was just here.
heed the sign and remember to LOVE, people...
what is the deal with people and their wacky cars in seattle? this is like, the third one i saw.
it is a well known fact that touring bands are in general, poor and desperate for a decent place to sleep. what is lesser known (or applauded) is that it is usually the kindness of strangers that gets you around. the kindness of girls mostly. it's unfortunate that the term "groupie" is so associated with slutty girls waiting backstage and offering up sexual favors because i'm not sure what to call these kind souls who open their doors, feed, drink and sleep us. saints? welcome wagoneers? i wish i had some photos of the lovely ladies who put us up in seattle. big love and big thanks!
the battery in our van keeps dying and everyday i get up an hour early in case we need (another) jump. this is all our fault most likely. our van is so tricked out with gadgets we can't even figure out what's draining the battery. here's jc at the mechanic's who told us everything would be a-ok if we could remember to not leave all our shit (ipod, cell phone, gps) plugged in overnight.
pretty much everyday, bob and i try to find a cute dog. we found this one in a parking lot outside starbucks in twin falls, id.
p.s. bob takes pictures of dogs incessantly and you can see them on itookthisonmyphone.com , this genius site where you can send all yr pics from your blackberry. which is so smart, i mean, it's in your hand ALL THE TIME right? here are a few of bob's pics, he's already doing a much better job of documenting this trip than i am but i'll be all set up with my own itookthisonmyphone.com pretty soon.
another day, another dog. i think this one is from SLC.
me & JC in seattle
for the record, salt lake city is really far from seattle. we were relieved to just BE somewhere. we weren't prepared for the bonus: everyone in SLC is gorgeous. i'm not exaggerating. again, i should have taken photos to prove i met 4 out of my next 5 husbands that night.
these liquour laws look mormon to me
there's that poster again
black angels rock. look at the photo close and you will see that christian is totally see-thru he is moving so fast.
3 blurry warlocks on a couch, salt lake city.
the lovelies that put a roof over our heads
