Just stopped in Casa Grande, Arizona. The GPS (Gremlin Positioning Satellite) kept telling me to turn right and go to Mexico, but I stayed on the 10. Traveling with my Memphis friend, Raven.
It's Sunday night. I hear it's gonna be 85 in Austin, which is warmer than last year, when it was 40 and raining the whole time. Most of the shows at SXSW are outside, so I am happy about that. I have five shows, and I want to see as many other shows as I can. That's it for now.
