You're viewing the original Hometown Invasion Tour website as it appeared when launched in 2006. Back then, a site built with tables and flash was commonplace. A few changes were made, but it appears as it did eleven years ago. A modern and responsive version is in the works.

Hair and Sand


Wednesday, Nov 22, 2006 from Santa Cruz, California

This morning was great. I woke up and had the pool house all to myself, I didn’t set me alarm, I just got up when I felt like it, somewhere around 10am. I woke up a few times this morning and relaxed in bed, which I haven’t been able to do for quite sometime. While I’m thinking let’s count up the places I’ve slept so far at hosts. Not counting camping out a couple nights and a couple nights in motels I believe I’ve slept at 21 different places since September 8th. Of the 21 there has been two hide-a-beds, 2 blow up mattresses, and 5 couches I’ve slept on. So thank you everyone for your hospitality. That’s a lot of different places in a couple months.

This morning I walked up and down 41st Street here in Santa Cruz where I grabbed a excellent sandwich at Chill Out and then wandered into a few skateboard and surf shops. Walking up and down the streets I could definitely tell I was in a surf town, Santa Cruz is known for it. It’s a great vibe.

During the afternoon I went to visit Joy at work at the salon. Now salons are a great little pieces of the puzzle in American life. Most everyone goes to the barber or salon on a regular basis (as for me I usually only go every 9-12 months). At any salon or barbershop across the country you’re bound to find great conversation and friendly people. It’s probably always one of the friendliest places in town, with small conversation. Love it. Thanks for chatting it up all you ladies at the salon.

From there I went to the beach! Woo hoo! There were about 30 surfers or so and beautiful sunset. In addition to surfers there were tons of dogs running amok, people just chilling out, and well then there was me with my little trusty tripod. It was nice to set me feet in the sand. And I’m pretty sure Santa Cruz is a sweet town to live in.
