[Alex White of White Mystery sent in a wrap-up of the last-minute tour prep and travel to Austin.]
9am Spent the early morning preparing special projects for Busy Beaver Button co. including coverage of clients at sxsw. Thanks to an awesome button crew for mailing all the button supplies ahead of time.
1:40pm Francis arrives at my Logan Square apartment from making buttons all day. He forgot to print the boarding passes and itinerary so he hand writes all the information.
2pm Easy Blue Line trip to Ohare.
Arrived at Ohare and spent 45 minutes convincing delta that a guitar qualifies as carry on according to their web page where it says "guitar qualifies as carry on baggage."
Flight is delayed. Board eventually. Sleep walk to layover in Memphis and magically appear in Austin. Hop on the $1 #100 bus airport flyer directly to my friends Dmitri and Paloma.
The party begins.
Beautiful Austin house and Francis hops in the back of a pick up truck.
