We drove out to Norfolk early Sunday morning to the big town park area and after soundcheck, Hawaiian shaved ice and 2 bites each of a Funnel cake, we spent the afternoon in a local hotel room and slept. I tried to get a pic of Duffy, Scott and Josh all sleeping on the King sized bed, but it was too dark and my phone doesn't have a flash. I fell asleep on the couch watching Bourne Identity and Pirates of the Caribbean on tbs. Then we played at 8:30 but had to end early because of something called a massive lighting storm.

The flight from Dallas to Omaha (via St Louis) was a non-stop, so we didn't have to scramble at the airport to find a new gate. Josh and I grabbed the aisle and window seats respectively and I blew my nose and Josh made grunting noises hoping that no one would sit between us. But it was a full flight and we ending sitting by a fascinating person, Carli, who is basically Claire from LOST. Carli is from Melbourne, Australia and is taking some time off to travel around America staying with people that she meets along the way. She had just spent a week in New Orleans, but had met a couple in Phoenix who lived in Omaha. So she was going there next. She's a traveling vagabond until her cash runs out. I told her she needed to see NYC, San Diego and Seattle. Josh recommended Chicago as well. Josh also tried out his Australian accent on her. If you ever saw the beginning of Dumb and Dumber, you know the awkward moment that it was.
