Eating my way through the USA.

So, lately I’ve spent a lot of time and money in gas stations. Our big red van needs gas and we need breakfast (and sometimes lunch and dinner). Over the last few months my diet has slowly devolved into an unhealthy mix of cheeseburgers, diet coke, and whatever free food we can get from the venues we are playing at. I keep things interesting by scouring the shelves of service stations along the way. Rest stops are all mostly the same, but often have a few regional differences to amuse even the weariest of travelers. These weird pastries or unusual chocolate bars were forgotten as quickly as I could eat (or not eat - I’m looking at you Mallow Cups) them, until it was decided that a blog should be started. The band has jumped on board frighteningly quickly, procuring me disgusting “delights” and photo-documenting some of my most recent gustatory adventures.

Now that I have a week back at home I’m going to try to write a few reviews and figure out how to blog like a pro. Stay tuned as I go to Austin, Southern Ontario and Quebec and then embark on yet another month-long tour of the US.
