The very first Troubadour Gypsy Tour.
Specs: 16 days. 18, (possibly 19,) gigs. 13 states. 2 guitars. 1 Honda Civic Hybrid.
Emotions: Probable road rage whilst I shake my fist at idiot drivers. A bit of anxiety about leaving the family for so long. Wondering if my childhood friends are going to hate my guts by the end of the tour. And most of all, SHEER EXCITEMENT!!!, despite knowing that I am going to be exhausted by the end of it.
Goals: Meet new people. Go new places. Have ridiculous amounts of fun. And… (Not going to lie) hopefully sell some CDs and merch. 😉
