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.

Charleston


Saturday, May 26, 2007 from Charleston, South Carolina

Angel Oak – Simply one of the most amazing trees in the world. It’s close to being the most amazing tree of the trip. I suppose it’s tied with the Red Woods. It’s just a different kind of amazing. It’s not very tall, but the limbs fork out in every direction and could cover a mansion. You could build a lot more than a tree house there, more like a tree mansion, or castle, whichever is more your style.

Matt – Part of the trip is that sometimes I just don’t have enough time. Matt would be one of those times, because he deserves way more than just a paragraph. But it was a good couple of hours. Matt’s name was passed onto me last summer from an article in the Detroit Free Press. At 26, he lives a pretty good life. He lives on a 41’ sailboat. Unfortunately we didn’t have enough time to go sailing as my last name so deserves. He had just gotten back from a business trip to the UK and headed out to LA the next day as he’s about to move out that way. After a quick tour of his sailboat I was convinced that I would love to live on a sailboat. He’s taken several long sailing trips including parts of Europe. What a life! What a unique way to live. We headed to Poe’s for a bite to eat and a chance to visit. Matt’s another one of those people who just “get’s it.” Thanks for meeting up Matt! We can go sailing when I make it back to L.A. sometime, it’s something I’d truly love to learn more about.

Lindsay’s cookin’ – Mark is a lucky guy, you better appreciate it mark! The newest food on the menu that I’ve tried is stuffed zucchini. Some zucchini, some sausage, a little of this, a little of that, and it was delicious! Mom, can you dig a recipe for this? It’s close to best new food of the trip. And speaking of bests, Lindsay hit a soft spot of mine in a category that’s can be not so forgiving: bacon. If there was a doctoral degree in bacon, I would have had it a long time ago. Well I don’t know what it was Lindsay, but that may have just been the best bacon of the trip. The English muffin sandwich, well hands down, that was the best breakfast sandwich of the trip. Thanks for the eats and treats! The two of you spoiled me.

Charleston – In a more standard and tourist respect of Charleston, it’s an awesome town. Downtown is really well preserved. The million dollar mansions along Rainbow Road and the Battery are astonishing. Add in a carriage ride around tour, shopping at the market, some good restaurants, and it can be a pretty romantic town. As for history, well there are books and books worth of the history in Charleston. The list of towns that I want to return to is growing.
