I Made It

So much to tell, but no time to tell it.

In a nutshell:

  • Horrible snowy roads in Illinois
  • Playing movie title games to stay awake
  • A moving experience at Graceland
  • Some great barbeque in Memphis
  • 2 Green Monkey mixes in the car (Total Absorption, What’s In A Word?)
  • The Crescent City Soul Box Set
  • Going the wrong way to Camp Hope
  • Finally finding Camp Hope
  • Deciding what the hell let’s go to the French Quarter
  • Spending about a half hour walking around, looking for the French Quarter after parking at Frenchman and Chartres
  • Finding the French Quarter
  • Looking for a place to eat
  • Calling MizBubs to ask for a place to eat
  • Asking a policeman for a place to eat
  • Eating at a great restaurant with wonderful crabcakes
  • Walking the long way back to the car
  • Driving back to Camp Hope, desperately trying to reach it by the midnight curfew
  • We Made It
  • Sleep (no farting man next to me, but two guys over has a wicked snore)
  • Wake Up
  • Start Blogging

Today is the first day of work in Musician’s Village. I’m excited!

See ya soon.

  1. Hey, where’d you end up eating?

    Glad you made it. Which barbecue place did you go to in Memphis? Interstate, or Corky’s, or Central?

    Can’t wait to hear more about your adventures

  2. Splotch, I don’t know if you will get a chance to read this or not, but If you want some awesome barbeque on your way back, skip Memphis and take 51 North into Cairo, IL. It is the southern-most town. Theres a place called Shemwell’s there with the best pulled pork sandwich I have ever had. It’s on Washington Ave, but ask anyone where Shemwell’s is and they’ll point you in the right direction. You should check out the old downtown while you’re there, too. There is a lot of history in Cairo, and it’s a strange place, indeed. Have a great timein N.O.!
