Henchgirl is currently composing a post detailing every step of the fiasco that is our current road trip. It's going to be epic. It'll take you an hour or so to read, but trust me, it'll be worth it.

I never mentioned that we got a Winnebago, a Minnie Winnie to be exact. Before we left DC for Fresno two weeks ago, I'd planned to give the RV a grand introduction right here on LJ, along with a full description of how she's the ideal long-term investment for traveling performers like us. Just think of all the money we'd save on motels and restaurants, and what a perfect way to transport a child and someone else to help with baby and/or show needs! The RV was Mom's idea, as she wants to use it as well, but Henchgirl and I were both totally behind this investment. Everything about it seemed perfect.

Do I really need to cue the maniacal laughter at this point? Insane, desperate cackling was implied by that lead-in, right? Either way, just wait until she's finished the post. We might actually have a new show in the works from this trip alone, but so far, it's not so much a story as much as a series of unfortunate events... and punishing windstorms... and sideways snowstorms... and wanton property damage... and carbon monoxide. Yes, that too. And we're not even halfway through this trip.

To think, I've almost forgotten that my first performance of The Road to Nowhere is tonight! Be sure to check out for local CBS news coverage of the festival, featuring a special cameo appearance of my blue bowler derby. Also, Henchgirl's posted screenshots of my latest interview with Chuck Leonard. I love how she's totally on top of things even now.

I should be rehearsing. Instead, I'm just going to focus on breathing. I never knew that could be a luxury until this trip.

Be careful with that carbon monoxide. And the other stuff.

We need to talk about the Minnie Winnie and the practicality of it, because after graduation, I kind of wants one. I'm just not sure of all the logistics regarding insurance, where you park it, and how much you pay when you do. Everything I've seen looks a bit too expensive to make it a realistic alternative to apartment hell, but I'm willing to do very unconventional things if they pan out for a few years until I can get some kind of strong financial base.

My RV experiences have always been more pleasant.

Let me know when you'll be up my way. I might even be able to trick my boss into paying me to cover it.

It... may not actually happen this time. We're going to try! But when you read Lydia's account, you will understand why it may not work out. I mean, like, for actual health and safety reasons. It depends largely on how well the RV checks out when we take it in for repairs, as well as the weather, because there's no way in hell I can take those mountain roads in Oregon and Washington if there's even a chance of flurry. But we'll keep you posted. We'll try, we really will, because we very much want to see you and hang out.

Technically, we're already in spring, and by the time you got up here, we'd be well out of winter weather. It's been a truly pussified winter up here.
