Sauce Boss Summer Tour took us from Tallahassee to San Diego and back, then up to Maine and back. 11,500 miles on those two runs. And that does not count the flight to Montana and back.
Here are some shots from a few of the the gigs, sightseeing, and some food along the way.

Gorgeous day off in D.C. While trecking for museum to museum, we chanced upon this little tiny park with tis statue of Mahatma Ghandi. The man who broke the yoke of the British Empire. This man changed the world by making it clear that we can do the same. In this time of crazy world events, doing the right thing is imperative. His words: “My life is my message”
