2013 Crossmen Protest Tour
Day 7, Thursday June 20thThe trip to Paris, Ky and our Bourbon County HS housing site was uneventful. Just like we like them. A little over 200 miles is a good distance for us. It seemed to fly by compared to the 425 mile jaunt the night before. It is good for the drivers and all involved as we get into the housing site around 3 am. the balance between sleeping on the motor coaches and floor time is manageable.
Rehearsal Day White Bourbon County High School, Paris, KY
The Bourbon County HS is very picturesque. The front of the main building is red brick with huge white columns reminding us of a southern plantation. The school mascot is a caricature of a southern colonel. He seems perfect for the setting. The surroundings are rolling hills with large trees and lush greenery everywhere. As you could imagine, horse farms and agriculture appear to be the dominate industries for the area. It is a beautiful place.
At 1:30 central time our good friend and board member Mark Purnell hosted our weekly internet radio program. This week is a special treat because we are finally on the road and can talk about the events of the tour to date. I called in and Mark was ready to roll as usual. We are going to try to make the report from the road a weekly reality. We really appreciate Mark's enthusiasm and we look forward to the 20 minute segment. You can find this episode and all of the previous program segments at http://www.spreaker.com/show/the_crossmen_show_aka_bones_hour . The really unique thing about the spreaker.com approach is that you don't have to listen to the broadcast live. You can stream it afterward or download the segment as a podcast to listen to later. The live broadcast allows you to ask questions while the program is being recorded.
We are on a mission today though. We have today to clean all that we can in preparation for our first battle in Lexington tomorrow. We seem pretty focused on all levels. The day was business as usual. The corps is ready for a good night's sleep with 8 hours of floor time.
