Goes Cube Tour Day Three

Day three: the first travel day. Our goal was to cover a fair amount of distance on our way to Louisville by game time and then find a motel room and some beer. Game? Oh, just a certain college basketball team from Raleigh, NC who happened to wreck (final score, NCSU 85 Duke 80 in OT...not technically a "wrecking", but a fine win no less) another certain team from Durham. Happy happy WOLFPACK.

As the game went to overtime the guys in the band decided to head to the bowling alley near our small corner of Almost Heaven, WV and I celebrated the win (and my large role in it) by fielding a few celebratory phone calls.

Other highlights from the day included lots of time in the van on the highway, inventive beer bottle opening, and a trip to Bojangles for lunch. Tomorrow promises to be much more eventful with a show scheduled at The Rudyard Kipling and a probable photo stop at a state capitol building or two. Don't worry, this all looks much cooler on camera than it does here in writing...
