The events of the last few days leave a lot to tell. The show in Prince George was wicked and we had a really good time. The crowd was awesome, and we met some really cool people. They were moshing so hard for Egypt that someone knocked Chris’ mic into his face and cut his lip. It was awesome!! Directly following the show we loaded up our gear and drove on thru the night. Considering we got up at 6:45 am Sunday I went for a span of about 36 hours without sleep. It was such a beautiful drive that I didn’t want to sleep and miss anything. Still being cooped up in the van for long periods of time can affect the mind and there were times where I was going crazy. Definitely worth it! The “highways” up here do not in any way resemble the highways of the rest of Canada and there were long stretches they were not even paved. Winding through the mountains of Northern B.C. was a very long and beautiful trip with lots to see and a ridiculous amount of bugs! Many of the sneaky little bastard mosquitos made their way into the van as we slept.. when I say many I mean like for every 3 I killed, 10 more came in. All in all this has been one of the greatest experiences I’ve ever been a part of. The drive has been incredible and I’m on the road with people I consider family. The tour is off to a wicked start and it’s just the first bit. Tonight we are playing two shows in Whitehorse, something we have never done before. The first is at Epic Pizza, starting at 7PM and going until 10PM, the second show is at Paddy’s Place from 11PM – 1AM.
