"Alma Gitana" a gypsy soul
Crossmen 40th DCI Summer Tour- Day 4
Rehearsal Day- Las Cruces, NM
We are steadily making our way west across the country to our first show in California. We traveled the 305 miles from Kermit to Las Cruces in good order. The initial part of tour each summer is used not only as a fourth week of spring training in preparation for contests but also as training for the corps as far as what a great drum corps does while on the road. Unloading our sleep stuff at the new destination, getting on the floor as quickly as possible in order to obtain the maximum amount of floor time each day is part of the formula for remaining well rested.
The food crew is the first out of bed each morning. The truck is mostly set up for them upon arrival. They are up an hour before the corps in order to prepare the hot meal portion that may include baking biscuits, cooking breakfast sausage, oatmeal or egg casseroles. The balance of breakfast includes a selection of cereals and the ever present drum corps staple, peanut butter and jelly.
