The final batch of Florida shows on this run are over. The last show, at Aces on St Patty's Day, was one that we'll all remember for a long time. It was a benefit to raise money for an anti-child abuse organization.

We had so many friends come out! Some we've known since our first trip to Florida and others that we just met. It was so cool to see people from all over the state make the trip to say goodbye till next time!

I know there's a few Florida warriors even coming to The Intersection on April 5!

I didn't expect Monday to be such a fun night. Only because Mitch, Tyler and I had the longest Sunday ever! It started out with a 4 p.m. boat ride and ended up with the 3 of us jamming acoustic guitars until around 5:30 a.m. We had so much fun playing The Stones, Tom Petty, Black Crowes, Zeppelin and everything else we could think of.

The funny thing is, whenever someone asked us to play one our songs, we couldn't remember the words to save our lives! Ha ha!

Luckily, Mitch remembered them by the time we hit the stage on Monday. We had a really fun time playing together, and drank a lot of Guinness and Jameson afterward.

We'll be home in less than 18 days.

We left Jan. 10; that feels like four years ago.

To be honest, the bus feels way more like home than our apartment.

On Friday, we'll be in Rome, Ga., which is a great little town. Then, it's up to Anderson, S.C., where we'll be playing biker bar outside of town called Hogtails. It's always a rowdy time out there!

Everyone in the bus is happy and healthy for the most part. Tyler and Chip are just getting over colds. I'm so thankful I didn't catch it! We are all looking forward to being home on stage at The Intersection, and partying all night with everyone after the show.
