    2 more days. I'm getting excited. I know I will be super tired after the concert since I'm driving back home after the show, but it will be soo worth it.

    Brothers for life. RIP Glenn

    I'm not sure I believe in fate, but I know that crossing paths with Glenn Lewis Frey in 1970 changed my life forever, and it eventually had an impact on the lives of millions of other people all over the planet. It will be very strange going forward in a world without him in it. But, I will be grateful, every day, that he was in my life. Rest in peace, my brother. You did what you set out to do, and then some." -Don Henley

    Thanks, NKIT. Its been a long time coming. I'm just sad it was too late for me to see Glenn with them. My only regret. I just wanted too long.

    I've made that exact same drive after a show (from NOLA through Jackson on my way home), and I have a helpful hint.

    VERY IMPORTANT: If you find yourself getting drowsy enough where you have to make an effort to keep your eyes open and your head up (like you're trying to turn up the radio and stuff to keep alert), then pull over into a well-lit parking lot (like a fast food restaurant or a big gas station) and take a nap in the back seat for a half hour or however long you need.

    I had an accident once from falling asleep at the wheel and it's well worth the short delay to be safe.

    Always in our hearts, Never forgotten

    Thanks for the advice, Soda. I will do that if I start feeling drowsy. I should had taken the next day off, but I'll be off again in 3 weeks for my cruise.

    I'm only taken an hour off of work to drive down to New Orleans. I don't remember how bad the traffic is in New Orleans, but I shouldn't have too much trouble with traffic.

    Aaaah, Shun, I'm so excited for you. It's really something to have Don, Joe and Timothy singing their songs right there in front of you, in the same room! It's even something seeing Steuart and Will and the other backing musicians live, after seeing them on video for so many years - they're sort of famous too! (to us, at least haha). Can't wait to read your review. Be safe. Hopefully they play VoL.

    ETA: actually will be cool to see Deacon right there, too

    I've seen Will, Michael, Milo, Scott, Erica and Steuart with Don last year. So this will be my first time seeing them playing with the guys.

    I've seen Don, Joe, and Vince's solo shows, but I've never seen Timothy in concert.
