It’s the day before I head out on my “Have Guitar Will Travel Tour 2022” and to say I’ve been anxious this week is an understatement. I’ve been sleeping in my van for the last couple weeks parked in my driveway. (Yes I know I’m weird)
The last time I did this tour route I had a full band, but this time I’ll be 100% solo. No “relief” drivers or anyone to talk to, just me and my van and my head full of things I need to sort out. So I guess it’s more of a soul journey than I thought.
I’m looking forward to the solitude, the camping, meeting new people and of course the shows.
I could NOT have done this without the help of everyone who donated to my GoFundMe and I am forever grateful as I didn’t think anyone would ever give two shits about me and my stupid songs. Yeah, I know it seems like a big old pipe dream to some, but I’ve managed to strum out a living with my six strings and my imagination. There is no greater feeling than when a complete stranger relates to one of my original songs.
I’ve been blessed beyond my expectations by my friends and their support. And as I get the van packed tonite I’ll be holding in my mind that this is not just my adventure, it’s your adventure too. So I’ll do my best to keep a tour blog and post pictures and video and maybe even a LIVE-STREAM from the road.
I really just want to say thank you again and again for your support and your belief in this vagabond-Gypsy-troubadour.
It’s really all I have left in this world. #tourlife #workingmusician #getoutanddrive #tobycbrady
