    Day 17 - The Red Pepper

    July 12, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 28 °C

    Super long drive today. We did maybe 7 hours or so to get to Aiken. The town is pretty nice I must say, really laid back and just full on southern. We got to the room first and then headed to the gig. Ben was there to meet us (he helped secure the gig and then a room). We set up and instantly noticed the palmettos.

    People really liked us here. There was a young dude named Zach with some friends and probably his girlfriend. E got a little drunk and didn’t want us to leave. He told me during chatting that his and I’s generation were so much different. He turned 22 that day.

    It started pouring big time after the gig so we had to wait it out while I checked my cases for palmettos. I didn’t mention this before but I had a nice meal. Wagyu steak with fries. A tad overdone but great sauce.

    One weird thing about this area is all the girls call you baby. I’ve never experienced that before. It’s very different culturally here. You can tell there are people who love the living and some who want out hard.

    After the gig I got some snacks and Andrew got two quarter pounders, 6 nuggets, and a chocolate shake. Dude is inane.

    Our next three gigs are in South Carolina so the long drives are over!
