4th of July - Part 1

This is the 1st year in 11 years that Big hasn't worked the Warped Tour. This is a good thing. This is also the 1st year he's gotten a chance to go to the Warped Tour as a spectator, a civilian.

We drove down to Ventura but before we parked for the day we explored a bit. We found this adorable little italian place and decided to have a little lunch. This was a real treat for Big. Here he was at the site of the tour but instead of working we're relaxing over a wonderful lunch and a caraffe of chianti.

After lunch we got our vip bands and went to see his tour friends; most of whom have grown into family at the point after so many years of touring together. It is fascinating to see this exchange. Tour folk seem to have their own culture. I guess it makes since after living and sleeping in a bus with 19 others, working in the sun all day with rarely a shower, and eating off a grub line everyday as you traverse the country. In a way it sounds like a wonderful adventure.

After bus call Big and I left the Warped Tour. We were eagerly on our way to our next destination.

We will be spending the 4th in Malibu. I'll be blogging about that experience later.
