Finally arrived in Austin, TX after a long day and drive. The day started with some breakfast diner where some old timer gave us some weird jokes, stories and song & dance. Then it was a few skate missions where Garrett got broke on a hubba ledge with a large kink at the bottom. Spanky got a blunt slide while me No Age dudes and Andrew sat around playing guitar by the vans. Then the Lubbock locals took us to some ditch with a bunch of gaps. The largest one in which Slash threw down a huge ollie over. By the time we got on the road to Austin it was already 6pm and at least a 6-7hr drive ahead of us. Me and Spanky got seperated from the caravan for a few hrs. Driving through Texas at night on a one lane road that never seems to end gets a little spooky. You can go for an hour straight without seeing another vehicle or any signs of civilization. Then you got numerous amount of deer on the side of the road that you hope don't decide to bolt in front of your car. We kept expecting to see Leatherface run across the road with Chainsaw in hand. Our soundtrack of Earth blasting through my car speakers didn't help that stretch of the drive either. We finally caught up with the rest of the team at a random gas station in the middle of nowhere. Then about 4 hrs later and at 3am we hit Austin. By the time I hit the sack it was 5am. Now its the last leg of our trip and time to check out the sounds of SXSW!
