Hard Rock Cafe – Pittsburgh

Six hours from Indianapolis to Pittsburgh. Clem bought this nifty little Black and Decker auto vac. I thought that it was to break that out.

So we’re making or way across this beautiful big sky country. Another long drive day but soon the gigs will be closer. I feel like we are building up momentum as we travel east. It’s nice to pause and see the baby Elk or the cowboy teaching his son how to round up the cattle.   Read More >>
