The End of Summer

Four more days until Kyle and I are off for our NorthWest tour. With the heat here at home, it couldn’t come a moment too soon, but with the amount we need to get done before we leave, we could certainly use an extra moment or two! And this year we will be traveling with the camper we purchased in Idaho on last year’s tour, which adds another whole level of complexity to the preparations, but a new level of fun to the trip.

By the numbers

With the unrelenting triple digit temperatures in Kansas City, Kyle and I are counting the days (ten) until we leave for our NorthWest tour. So being the number geek that I am, and facing a full day of writing, I decided to count a few things first.

 

Our trip by the numbers:

 

  • 38 days of travel
  • 3 shows
  • 8 days of showing
  • 5,000+ miles of driving
  • 82+ hours of driving
  • 4 hours before we run out of things to talk about
  • 10 states
  • 1 province
  • 41 feet of vehicle
  • 1,230 number of songs we have time to listen to while driving
  • 19,595 number of songs we will have with us
  • 5,920 elevation of Sun Valley Art Fair
  • 60 lineal feet of display space in Art in the Pearl
  • 130,000 patrons at Saint Louis Art Fair
  • 95 pieces of artwork
  • ??? number of days it will take to recover

So many more things I could count today, but for now I need to write 1400 words, to answer 10 questions, to prepare for Artist Inc 2.

Happy July!

“The space and quiet that idleness provides is a necessary condition for standing back from life and seeing it whole, for making unexpected connections and waiting for the wild summer lightning strikes of inspiration — it is, paradoxically, necessary to getting any work done.”   Tim Kreider
