Woke up around 6:30. Load-in isn't until 8, so I just kinda hang out on the bus. No sense going balls-out on the first day, right?
Our first show is in Storrs, CT, on the campus of UConn. For Duke basketball fans, this is enemy territory.
Turned into a long, slow, grinding day. Not too bad for the opening day of a tour, just steady on.
Before I knew it, it was well after midnight, and I was thinking 'bout getting in my bunk. We're not leaving until 6am, because tomorrow's a day off and it's only a 130-mile drive. Plus, we didn't buy the rooms tonight, so we won't be able to get into them tomorrow unless either a)the hotel was well short of a sellout, or b)everyone in it tonight checks out early tomorrow morning.
I'm in bunkyland just before 2am…
