You're viewing the original Hometown Invasion Tour website as it appeared in 2006/07. At the time, a site built with tables and flash was commonplace. A few backend changes were made to keep the site functioning, but it appears just as it did 16 years ago.

Jeanna, who hosted me as the Whispering Pines B&B, has given me a great list of topics to write about. And I encourage everyone to send me their ideas of what topic to attack. One of Jeanna’s latest questions is, “How do you wake up? Is there a ’time’ you decide to get up to face the day?”
Wow, every week as this trip moves on it has become harder and harder to get up in the morning. So this is really quite the topic. Believe me, there is no such thing as a schedule out here on the invasion. One week I might be up until 3am every night. The the next week I’m waking up at 7 or 8am every morning. One of the most difficult things is that as the day winds up and my hosts are about to go to bed, that’s when it’s time for me to go to work. Usually I’m pretty exhausted and just want sleep. That’s when blogs are type, photos are edited, e-mails are answered, after the midnight hours.
There have been a few more days lately where I’ve had the luxury of not bothering to set my alarm. Typically I set my phone’s alarm at 8:30 every day. Though there have been many days where I’ve been up at 6. If nothing is planned in the morning I’ll lay in bed for another half hour. Then I’ll usually slowly roll out of bed feeling like I didn’t get any rest. Maybe I’ll shower, maybe I won’t, once again there is never a schedule. Breakfast comes next, usually something light. But I’m craving a good omelet, I haven’t had one in a while. However, on a busy week I might even skip out on breakfast to get work done and make phone calls if I know it’s going to be the only window of the day.
Waking up each day on this trip is a new adventure. There haven’t been two days that are alike. I wake up and start wondering what the day is going to bring. Today it’s in Oklahoma City, next week it will be in Texas, then Louisiana, and then another 25 states after that.
