I didn't realize that the Mrs. has been stalking their website to see when they might be coming out way for a concert. Yesterday I'm informed that they will be in Spokane, WA on November 7th, which is a day after her birthday (the 29th again I think) and if we go that would be "the bestest birthday present ever".
I'm taking some liberties with the 29th birthday and the "bestest", but she really wants to go. Right now it looks like we will drive up on the 7th and back on the 8th. It is an 8 hour drive, which I'm not looking forward to, but with a good band and good company, I can definitely think of worse ways to spend the time. I'm thinking I'll rent a nice car for the trip and if we are lucky we can stop along the way to check in with a blogger we know that lives en route, and an old friend of ours lives in Spokane.
I think it'll be a fun trip. I've already got the hotel booked and a house-sitter arranged.
