America, here we come!


This is the epic journey I am undertaking tomorrow, with The Dread Crew of Oddwood. 10,100 miles (roughly 16,000 km) will be covered. The Earth has an equatorial circumference of 24,900 mi. (40,000 km), so our second national tour puts us 40% "around the world". We're heading North to Seattle, then East to Boston, then South to New Orleans, and Southwest back to San Diego, with stops in 23 cities. A lot of driving for only 31 days. Thankfully the longest drive will be early on in the tour, from San Francisco to Portland--a whopping 11 hours on the road! You can see a list of venues on the Facebook event page.

I'm bringing along an analog journal and a high-definition video camera to document the whole experience. When I have the opportunity, which should be many times along the way, I will post an update here on how things are going.

All for now, more for later. Until then, this is Drew Peters.
