So, Eric, what kept you sane on that 18 hour drive from San Antonio to Columbia, seeing as though you had to follow at huge Penske truck going 65 and being passed by all sorts of vehicles?

Well, there isn't really a lot to do here. I pretty much just fish, run, write songs and then commit them to tape before I forget them.
Funny thing...this county is named "Maury County"...you'd think that it was pronounced like "Mauuuary", i.e. Maury Povich...noooooooooooooooooooooooo. They say it "Murry" I am really not used to the accents here yet...but I have found the local bait shop, so I'm trying to get in good with them there. Speaking of that I am now going to go fishing. Adieu.
P.S. I drink waaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too much coffee these days. After 2 years without caffine, I'm hitting the coffeemaker like a relapsed heroin addict.
