Wow! Back in the saddle again! We all spent the three "days off" working from morning to night.

Our days were filled with running errands, getting gear fixed, and booking shows,and planning tour routing. I don't think I set my phone down hardly at all during the break. My plan was to spend time with my guitar but there just wasn't enough hours in the day.

Tyler and I arriving at Evergoove Studios was like a reunion amongst the band members! It's not often that we're apart for three days! We had so much fun during the live webcast and afterward we celebrated with our native evergreen friends!

At one point in the night, Dean was lying on the ground outside the studio and got a huge fox to come up and touch his hand! We took pics and video but it was really dark.

We'll post them if they turned out OK.

Inside, ee had music cranking in the studio and everyone was laughing and dancing. Chip probably gets the best moves award. Ha ha!

Our hosts for the event have truly become like family. They've opened up their home to us and over the last year we've gotten to know each other on a much deeper level.

My childhood friend Ryan, who introduced us to Brad and Jenny at Evergroove, lives right up the road from the studio. He and I were in our first band together, The Albino Chickens. We had some laughs reminiscing about junior high.

Tonight, we'll rock Denver at the Ol' Eck's Saloon. We had a riot there last time and we've been looking forward to coming back.
