After having a day of rest after such a wicked tour I'd like to take a moment to reflect on the past 5 weeks with these 17 amazing people.
-36 days on tour
-29 shows played
-20,000 kms travelled
-Many sold out shows
-1 trip to Nasa
-1 trip to the Carlsbad Caverns
-1 trip to the grave of 2 legends
-1 thanksgiving dinner
-Rum buckets on the beach at Pensacola. -Driving through a blizzard to see Mt. Rushmore.
-A night off in New Orleans -And many other details I probably shouldn't reveal on social media, haha. .
All in all, it was one of the greatest tours and experiences I've been part of. I can't say enough about the 17 people in this photo. @strikermetal
