Welcome to my Kill to Get Crimson 2008 tour blog!

My name is Isaac, 30 years old from Waterloo, Ontario, Canada. I have set this blog up for the purpose of documenting the journey I am taking following Mark Knopfler’s Kill to Get Crimson tour in North America, in the summer of 2008.

The North American leg of the tour, as well as my journey, begins June 24th in Morrison, Colorado and ends on July 31st in Miami Beach, Florida.

Even though I intend to write on a daily basis, publishing the stories onto the server would be tricky. After all, we’re talking about vast distances which will be primarily crossed by driving, and there is no way for me to predict the availability of Internet connection throughout the way.

So… make yourself at home and feel free to drop a comment.

Everything is booked.

It’s so nice to go to such a trip when everything’s booked in advance. In a trip like the one I’m doing, there’s no value to being super‐spontaneous as I already know which cities I am going to stay in every night. Booking everything in advance makes life so much easier—much more time to enjoy the journey, less time spent looking for places to stay!

4:00am now. Got to catch some sleep as tomorrow is going to be a long day—driving to Buffalo (about 2 hours), catching a plane to Baltimore in the afternoon…

Time to go to sleep, in my own bed… Good to be here in my own private room, and good to get the hell out of here tomorrow for another two weeks of total freedom!

If anybody wants to get together pre‐ or post‐show, let me know by SMS to 519‐635‐5003 or email. You can also email my phone at 5196355003@msg.telus.com—free to send and I’ll receive it as an SMS on my end.
