Rainbow road trip

Just returned from one of the greatest road trips ever. Nevermind that it was only three days. I was pretty sick when we left on Friday, and well when we returned last night, so it must have been good for me.

Tracy and Holly and I went to Ashland and Pistol River, where Tracy had some gigs. We got some bad coconut mate and great live music at the hippie coffee shop in Ashland, I got to experience nausea on the ridiculous and harrowing route that Tracy's GPS took us over the mountains from Grants Pass to the coast (people have died up there in worse weather...), we walked on the beach outside out hotel in Gold Beach, we ate delicious food prepared for us by the concert promoters in Pistol River, I got to sell lots of Tracy's CD to eager fans, new and old. We watched Tina Fey and Queen Latifah make fun of Sarah Palin on SNL and then proceeeded to use the word "mavericky" as many times as possible in the next 24 hours. But most of all, I came back with a [super soft] rainbow T-shirt and a deep love and appreciation for my friends.
