Trip Prep

The itinerary for the first few months is shaping up – see photo. The amount of effort it takes to do this is enormous: cleaning the house out (24 years of dust does not go gently), getting rid of possessions, extricating ourselves from work, from community, from projects. The guilt I feel about leaving my band is staggering.

I now understand why more people do not do this. For many months I have been preparing myself mentally for the hardships of living long-term out of a back-pack. What I hadn’t prepared for was the angst involved in getting to that point.

  1. On behalf of your band, we’re gonna miss you terribly. But we’re also so supportive of this amazing adventure. Get out of town, learn some new tricks, and come back to us a better bass player than ever!
