It took a mere 15 hours (including a 1/2 hour football scrimmage at the Wichita rest stop), but we made it to Austin unscathed at 1am. We added a last minute rider, Brent Crampton who puts the Grande entourage at a lucky 13. We all have BluBlockers on, but tha's a given. Just picked up our credentials at the Austin Convention Center and are making a BLine for the nearest BBQ purveyor. Chris is destined to consume BBQ for each meal of the trip and I don't blame him. Wanted to scope out the Karma Lounge, but they are closed. Load in at 5:30, show at 8:00. More details to come. And pictures.
