Kwik Trip, Long Trip

July 19, 2006

Just got done with out 2nd show in Hartford, WI on Saturday and we stopped into Kwik Trip to get Danny some coffee & donuts after a hard days work (Need Energy...running low). We pulled up to a gas pump. There was hardly anybody there at 1:30am and really no good place to park an extended van & trailer. Jason was bummed because there were no hot dogs on the rollers and came out empty handed in disbelief. We got back in the van and headed out on Hwy 60 only to be stopped by a cop a few seconds later.

"Is there a problem officer?" Danny asks from the driver's seat.

"Can I see your driver's license?" replies the cop. He goes back to his car for a whole 20 minutes...comes back and says,

"Apparently the clerk at the gas station said you didn't pay for your gas, but it seems as though she's made a mistake. Sorry about that."

So we continued on our way home. Danny was amazed that a cop apologized to him...that never happened before! But we were even more amazed at the clerk who has to pre-authorize the pump BEFORE you pump gas, which she didn't even do to begin with!

What a great weekend - 4th of July!

Thanks to everyone for joining us at the shows this week/weekend. The shows were fun and we got to meet some new fans and other bands as well...Little Big Town (Nashville, TN), Situation Davis (Chicago, IL)...etc. and we got to even take a little time out to enjoy listening to The Lost Bayou Ramblers and Step Rideau (TX)--GREAT music!
