Wow, I had no idea that the mapping process would take this long or be so involved! The hand-colored map of the 10 regions above and the McNally Atlas have been my best friends for these last couple months. I’ve mapped out the trip 3 different times and had to keep starting over because I kept forgetting important aspects. The first time, I forgot to put the music festivals in first and I ended up needing to be at a festival in Rhode Island when I was in Alaska…hmmm. The second time, I didn’t leave enough time for the bigger states… 1 week each for Wyoming and Colorado…hmmm. I am now on take 3 and so far so good. I have the general areas figured out and most of the states but still need to figure out the art gallery and school locations. Then, I will be figuring out how to put it all on the website and then it’s concert booking time!! Almost there…it’s unbelievably exciting!!
