It was an awesome weekend! First, JT did a tremendous job. Thank you guys so much for giving me the chance to experience U2 songs live that I know the band will never play (like "Trip Through Your Wires" -- wow!!). And thank you so much to Jason for dedicating a song to us and wishing us a great journey.

Second, thank you again so much to Mr. and Mrs. BC. I doubt we would have found the tree without you. I really appreciate having both of you as guides. And thank you again to the Kodak Theater group for coming up with the idea in the first place.

Now, pictures. I have many more in my Photobucket that you can see here. There are a few pictures I want to redo in black and white to give it the true U2/Anton feel. I'll post those when I get the chance.

Carlos and Trevor at our last stop before the tree:


The lovely facilities:


Everyone checking out the tree:

Cheers!


This one I'd like to do in black and white, it has that band-wandering-the-desert quality:

I didn't know I was going to have off of work until last Wed. Plus I didn't have anyone at home that would drive with me "just to look at a tree." I think it would freak me out to drive through the desert alone without any cell phone reception. I'll get to the tree one day....


We should go to JTNP in March. I'll make sure I have time off and can find a travel buddy for the road.

Nice job Dev!

Well, the thought of making another trip is up for grabs. Possibly this year or making this an annual thing.

Being out in all that space definitely made me appreciate the out-of-doors a little more. Amanda, I'd be in for a trip to the park in March.

I had a fantastic time! The BIGGEST shout out and thank you to Carlos for driving. (Check the inside of your arm rest. )

It was really nice to see Interference friends again (Carlos, Dev, Kathleen, Cecy and Rick) and to meet wonderful new blue crack addicts! Maryanne, it was a pleasure sharing the back seat with you.

I really want to thank the group for making the trek out, and for inviting me along (Dev ); I never would've gone all by myself - and it was so much more fun with all of you.



Fitz's pics coming soon.
