PART 19: 2011 Western American Road Trip, Boulder CO, Denver CO, show at Cervantes, heading home


The next morning we drove to Boulder Colorado to visit my stepbrother, a musician.

He suggested Efrain’s for Mexican food.

This was THE BEST FLAN I’ve EVER had.

Setting up at Cervantes in Denver

Some of his ear candy:






Me, my stepbrother, and the dancers.



lol, we greeted some Russians sitting in a car outside







An amazing night with great people, great music. HUGE thanks to my stepbrother TK for taking us in, feeding my dog, and treating me to a good time.

Here’s a video I took of another DJ:

Fast Tube by Casper

We headed home the next day. It’s always comforting to see this sign:

You really can “find yourself” on the road if you look hard enough. Use your time in the car to think about where you’re going (in life) and make plans for where you intend to be. Interact with your surroundings, meet new people, and try new things.

After a month on the road, I came home from this trip feeling like a much different person.

As for my Cadillac Seville, what an incredible machine.
