It's that time again (well almost). My imminant return to Arizona is upon us. In two weeks today I to pack bags and jump a flight bound for the American South West. That's right, if you haven't already heard (and if so, where have you been?!? [wink] ), I'm Tempe Arizona bound once again. This time around Catherine will also be coming with me. A month of rock n' roll, dry heat and cactii as far as the eye can see - I can think of nothing better. [smile] Not to mention the Jensen factor. [wink]

After a week in Tempe, we're heading down to the dusty Mexician border line, and continuing south to Puerto Peñasco, Mexico on the Sea of Cortez - home of Circus Mexicus - the bi-annual big Roger Clyne & The Peacemakers Mexican shows. For those who don't know, Circus Mexicus has become the Woodstock in the Peacemaker world. These are their biggest shows every year, generally 4000 gringos migrate south for the 4 hour long concert. And that's just the Peacemaker's set. David Lowry and Johnny Hickman of Cracker are opening this year, which is a sweet deal. So the weekend of the 20th is going to be a big one, filled with rock 'n roll, tequilas, dollar tacos! Personally aside from Circus Mexicus I'm very much looking forward to the whole Mexico experience - to date the furthest south I have been is the border on US side of Nogales. I'm looking forward to actually crossing the border this time (at Sonoyta). We have a villa down there for Friday through Monday to catch the show, and explorer the surroundings. Viva la Mexico! [smile]

Then it'll be back to Arizona, and probably out to New Mexico for a couple of days - somewhat dependant on the rock 'n roll goings on in Tempe, but at this point it looks like a safe bet (Last Exit and Yucca Tap calendars at this point are disappointing). Then back to Arizona, and out to LA for a weekend. Primary point for that trip is rock out with the Gin Blossoms. In addition the show it'll be great to show Catherine around LA and Hollywood also.

I'll be using my blog for lying in the letters to the boys back home about getting off on the wrong direction, finding some hookers and losing my erection. [wink] (Translation for non Refreshments fans: I'll be writing about my travels here). If you're interested in what I am up to, check back here through May and June. I'll also have my photos linked to from here. Since last year I've written some web based photo gallery software - so if you suffered the annoyance of my photos last year, you should be plesently suprised this year. [smile] (That statement is limited to presentation. It is in no way a promise of a lesser quantity of desert / cactii photos! [wink] Hi Irv! [wink]). While I'll be using my blog primarily, feel free to shoot me an email if you want.

For anyone here, if I don't see you before I fly out, take care and I will see you when I get back. For anyone in Tempe, keep a out for look for us at Yucca Tap or Last Exit, say hi and have a beer.
