Our Colorado time culminated with a James Buuuuffet concert. My 5th, J's 14th. One of the main reasons I go to JB is for the tailgating entertainment. Plus, Jamie/SIL Adventure and Rachel/DocDoc had never been, so taking newbies is always a treat.

Since they had to work (damn those people with real jobs), we couldn't get to the parking lot to start tailgating until close to 6. We were bummed, but went with the plan. Guess how many carloads were tailgating when we got there at 6? THREE. Unreal. Maybe it was the fact it was crisp October in Denver and dark by 6:30pm, but still. Of course we made the most of the tailgating and JB never disappoints in a performance. 

So our time in Colorado has ended ... for now. I know you are all curious for "what's next?" I have no answer for you. For some of you, having a blank canvas and not knowing where you'll live, how you'll make your money and what you'll drive for the next few months is about as terrifying as jumping out of a perfectly good airplane. But for us, it's only as terrifying as being stuck in the highest carriage on a ferris wheel when the motor suddenly breaks. We embrace obstacles and challenges like this; they are not sinkholes that swallow us whole. I'll be sure to keep you posted. 

In this very moment, we are merely headed to the East Coast for the next few weeks. It is our regular route from West to East via Chicago & Columbus. 

We certainly don't go through Chicago for these guys … 

But for this guy! 

And, we certainly don't go through Columbus for these guys … 

But for Mr. Sushi! 

So East Coast ... here we come!
