Home, home again. (Well, my second home.)

Back in VA! Got back to the US late Friday—Beth picked me up from the airport, and we headed back to the house. Mark and Kami were on a different flight than I and have a layover in L.A. Kami wouldn't be home till Friday night and Mark early Saturday morning.

The plan for the weekend is to take the Megabus up to Boston from Washington DC on the Saturday evening. It arrives in Boston at 6 A.M. in the morning! Suzanne and Eric have said we can crash in their hotel rooms for a few hours to sleep during the day, and then we’re going to make our way over to the pre-show meet up bar across from the venue, see the show, get the midnight bus from Boston down to New York, arrive in NY at 4 A.M., and finally get the 6 A.M. bus down to Washington D.C.

I am looking forward to seeing everyone in Boston. I have a lot of friends attending the show and am real pleased we are both going to make it up there. I was awake at 4 A.M. last night with jetlag, and it’s now 5 A.M. Saturday morning, and I’ve been up since 2:30 A.M. unable to sleep. Beth’s on her way back from the airport after picking Mark up—his flight was delayed, so he didn’t get in till 4 this morning. In fact, it’s now 7 A.M. and we’ve all just got back from breakfast at IHOP! Brent and I met up with Mark and Beth at the IHOP on their way back from the airport, then Kami woke up to an empty house, called us, and headed over to IHOP herself due to being awake with jetlag!


I’m going to suffer for no sleep, however, and I am hoping to get sleep on the overnight coach ride up to Boston tonight.


  1. Hope u stay awake for the show. Jetlag can hit you when u dont expect it.
    See u at the pre show n show

  2. OMG! I hope you get some sleep!

    Was the bus cheaper than the train from DC to Bos? Also- if the gig "starts" at 8:45, and we all leave at 11-11:15 ish, will that give you enough time to get to Bus station??

    :) Can't Wait!

  3. Now that's truly being on tour SI, safe travels. See you in NY!

  4. at this point Simon, you and Kami gotta be asking yourselves....isnt there just room for two more in the tour bus or riding shotgun in one of the tractor trailers???
