one of my goals in life has always been to get to all 50 states. i'm 5 away from accomplishing that goal, and by the end of this year, i'm going to do it. the five i'm currently missing are Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Oregon, and Hawaii. since 3 of the 5 that i'm missing are all right next to each other, i wanted to plan a road trip where i hit all three. and, since i've never been to Fest in Gainesville before, i figured i'd time it up with that and do it all in one shot since i'll be relatively close going to Alabama. it also happens that the 30th anniversary celebration of The Lost Cross House (possibly the oldest/longest running punk house in America) is happening in Carbondale, IL the week before, so the timing for all of this is working out pretty neatly for me. here's my tentative route: Chicago, IL Carbondale, IL Memphis, TN Jackson, MS New Orleans, LA Gainesville, FL Muscle Shoals, AL Louisville, KY Chicago, IL i'm not 100% married to going to Jackson, Mississippi. it was just a big city in the state and along the route from Carbondale to New Orleans. i AM, however, 100% open to suggestions if there are cool places to go/cool things to see and do. i'm super into history and sports, and not as much into partying and dance clubs, to give you an idea of the types of suggestions i'd be most receptive to hearing. obviously, i'm into music, too, but i'd rather see the sights/places i can't experience anywhere else than go to a show, especially considering i'll be bookending my trip with two different fests. if you live in any of these areas and want to meet up with me or house me for a night while i'm around, that would be dope. we're looking at the last 10 days of october into the first couple days of November as far as timing goes. any and all help is greatly appreciated!
Like it says in the title I’m after after record store recommendations in those states because on Saturday the 8th of August I'm flying with the family to the US for a 3 week road trip starting in Charlotte and winding through NC, SC, GA, AL, FL, LA, MI, TN and KY and back to Charlotte so I'm looking for record store recommendations. I haven't exactly decided the route yet so any suggestions will be helpful, the internet is a wonderful tool for finding stuff but you can't beat a little local knowledge. My wife already has her rolling eyes face perfected and my little girl has told me that my records are not going in her case, lack of family support aside I won't let these minor setbacks stop me Thanks in advance for any help.
Hey everyone! I just launched my new kick starter project! The reason behind the project is to show people the the entire country who can not travel and see things for themselves! Whether its financial reasons, medical, or just too many obligations I will show them the country through a photo book I will create! The project can be seen here http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/stephen-sutter/vagabond-a-boy-a-bus-a-camera-a-dream Any and all backings of the project are fantastic! Thank you all for reading my post! If you have any questions feel free to ask!
