Hoping I don't die.

Image Description
This is a self portrait from the first night of the Wild Ride tour. We set up out tents and and about 2 hours later an epic storm blew over us. We ran into our tents and all laid in them, watching the constant lighting, incredible thunder, and pounding rain hit our thin nylon membranes. Only a fraction of an inch to protect your from the wrath of mother nature... Thankfully, stakes held out, and lighting did not venture my way.

Just when you thought the storm was subsiding, a terrible clap of thunder would launch us up a few inches off the ground, and the rain would start up again with renewed tenacity. One of the worst storms I ever had to be so close to, and one of the best times in my life.

Templeton's Monster

Image Description
Ed may have posted this pic on his area of the site already, but I don't care. It's bad-ass. This was during a talk he gave at some art school I believe. He returns from a trip today so if I'm wrong, he'll surely correct me.

Harmony Basks In The Warm Southern Glow

Image Description
Back when he was still shaggy maned and muttonchopped, Josh complained that the Atlanta heat made his shoes get "soggy" faster than normal. He retrived a fresh pair from the van and laced them tighter than usual to remedy this, before leaping down a magnified five stair.

Matt B Awaits The Inevitable

Layton Gets His Happy Back

Image Description
Johnny was skating around in the street yesterday afternoon for the first time in a few weeks. After such a long hiatus one might think he'd be rusty, sluggish, unable to tic-tac let alone kickflip. It looked to me like he hadn't missed a day. J-Lay is bio.

Harm Glares Through An Artful Eye

Image Description
Josh became increasingly excited about shooting photos with his new camera over these past couple of trips. He'd often burst out of the van crying, "Photo gold!" when in eyeshot of a little girl raking leaves or a seagull feeding its young in the amber glow of a foreign sunset. Look for a Harmony exhibition in your town soon...

Tour Haze

Image Description
It's usually around the fifth of sixth day of tour, that the strain of the travel, skating all day in between demos and signings, being toted around in a far off,unfamiiar land and living off gas station food, all catch up with you. J-Lay and Bilbo do their best to fight off the effects of this last Australia trip.

Ed mastered a little tune with this accordion on the Good and Evil tour in 2004. It was dubbed "The Tour Theme Song" and could be heard echoing throughout Cracker Barrels and Denny's across Middle America, mixing with the rollicking laughter of the team and clacking of tails on hot parking lot pavement.
