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.

Morning in Saskatoon

So I went to have some breakfast downtown. Nice downtown area. Not very big, not very small, very clean and people appear to be nice. If only the food I had was as nice. Ordered a Caesar Salad that obviously wasn’t made of the freshest ingredients available in the market. But the latte was very good.

Weather is sunny and warm, perfect for a convertible ride. Regina, here I come.

Tomorrow (July 10) is a day off for the band. I have previously wondered what on earth are they going to be doing for a full day in Regina, which is not known much for its attractions. Then I came to realize that, hey, the band has an airplane at their command. How wonderful that must be. I will have to stick around in Regina for a full day, or maybe do some driving on my way to Winnipeg, which isn’t that much of an interesting place either.


Time to go,
