Headed to Steamboat Springs

For MusicFest. Shay is awesome and got tickets for my birthday. We're going with JJ and Kelli, so it'll be a ton of fun. Shay is making me ski... I've never gone before, so I'm a little nervous about it.

Anyway, there are going to be 40 bands at MusicFest. If I had to pick one guy to see, it would be Chris Knight. When I was writing a lot of poetry, he was a big influence on how I used language and details. Those of you that have read a lot of my poetry will understand what I'm talking about if you watch these videos:

We'll be back Monday night. I'm taking my computer, so I might try to blog if I have enough time between bands, sleeping, eating and drinking an adult beverage or two.


  1. Sounds fabulous - I'd say something like "have a great time," but that's a given.

    As far as skiing goes, my one experience involves a cautionary tale about getting off the ski lift. Just don't fall right there. You'll jam up the whole process...


  2. Just fyi: those big bumps in the road? Those are mountains. You'll understand immediately why skiing never really took off in Nebraska. Well, it did once. But only once.
