It's been a month...

Iller and Devin the Dude.

A-PLUS, KRAY, ME, DEL and SCOTT in the background.

I like this picture a lot. I kinda look like I could be the leader of this crew, but I'm not.

I've been meaning to post these up for a while but I got distracted by my life.
Looking at these pictures, it makes me want to get back in the van and do it all over again. I couldn't have asked to be on a better tour. I forget about all of the annoyances that were magnified by not having any private space for over a month, living out of a van, sharing a bed, sleeping on couches on a diet of fast food. I miss Junk Science. I haven't seen them since I got home.
A-Plus from Heiro was the man. He showed mad love. Devin and his crew were chill as hell and Del is a legend. It was crazy for me to even have brief chats with him in the greenroom before shows. I mean I was probably about twelve when I first heard Del and here I am sixteen years later opening up for him. Shoutouts to Zack Hendricks, and Pee-Wee (Devin's DJ, proving that even Devin has a white Dj with glasses).

This is the beach where Planet of the Apes was filmed.

We traveled this country hitting one city at a time, covering new ground,every day putting another notch in the belt. High altitude to low altitude. Cold weather to hot weather and then warm to cool. It was grueling and disorienting but also one of, if not THE most amazing experiences of my life. Unreal, or at least Surreal.
I would like to give a heartfelt shoutout to everyone who was part of our journey. To the people we met, fans, friends, Miranda in Deluth, gas station attendees, (even that kid I gave a black eye to in Denver), and the people we knew who put us up (GORDON, DINO, RUBEN, FLANNAGAN!!!) Thank You.

I hope at least he means Night-Rider Hasselhoff and not passed-out-with-cheeseburger Hasselhoff. Either way, that shit is racist yo.
