If You Use the Highway Without Paying for the Highway Then You Must Pay the Fine

The middle part of our tour is all long drives. After a seven hour trip up to Lauchhammer, we drove five hours south to Leipheim for a performance at a shooting range. As unhappy as I was with my playing at Real Music Club, I was quite pleased with how I played at Leipheim. The guitar felt like an extension of my mind. It was nice.
Leaving Germany, we had to spend about ten minutes driving through Austria on our way to Thun, Switzerland. Somehow we managed to get a $150 ticket for not having a $10 sticker on our windshield that grants permission to drive in Austria. So that sucked. But soon we were back in Switzerland, headed to Thun, where it turned out we were playing for a ninth grade French class. We played for thirty minutes. It was somewhat strange. The crowd was pretty much what you would expect. Pay was good and we were done by 4:30 so I basically have the night off. And my hotel room has a bathtub! I’ll be catching up on emails and maybe even practicing guitar. Tomorrow we drive five hours to Austria. But after that the drives are shorter.
We are over halfway done with this tour. In fact we have only five dates left. I’m holding up well. We all are. But i think we will all be happy to get back home.

I always wondered how the Swiss get their trees up to those high mountains!
