Lets Go Truckin!
Hello!! Wow, Coachella!! How cool to be in the 30 degree sun, a blue sky (and no prospect of rain to muddy the situation) at a festival surrounded by palm trees and snow capped mountains. The only problem being them fencing in the beer tents - they'd obviously heard Josh was coming. So between beers and warm wine, we caught Snow Patrol, Keane, Stereophonics, Josh Wink, Unkle, and Coldplay with a bit of Mercury Rev and Katie Melua, and Jamie Callum doing Radiohead covers thrown in. Sadly the US acts turned out to be a bit mediocre (OK s***), but hey they can't help it. Bless em they tried. After falling asleep drunkenly with our clothes on we dragged ourselves up the next morning to head onwards - to VEGAS BABY! What can we say - its a craaaazy place. Bright lights, strange buildings, scary rollercoasters, millions of slot machines and of course the one and only all you can eat buffet. For those not in the know, virtually every casino has some form of hall dedicated to stuffing yourself stupid with a huge variety of seemingly endless types of food. Restraint is called for in order to leave this experience without pain, walking normally, and without feeling like you have to go and throw up. Sadly, after several months on the road, and not known for our restraint, we fared badly. Twice. After having rested for a long time, we did manage to see some of the sights, bright lights and tack that is Vegas. Due to having already blown our budget though, we were forced to avoid the gambling. Still there's always Davenport's stag do.... On our way to Grand Canyon now, See you soon, partners, J n L x
