Day 3; 1,600 out of 10,000

Today’s morning was a rough wake up due to the lack of sleep but at least the location of our campsite was quite beautiful. Luckily, our friends from Hi-Line films brought some dumbbells and a makeshift jump rope to get the blood flowing. #Gettingswollbra Did I mention they also brought about 10 skateboards? We’ve managed to skate at about every gas station we have stopped at along the way. Skate or die! Anyways, after about 7 hours we finally made it to Chicago. Throughout the last 2 and a half days we covered 1,600 miles out of our 10,000 mile tour. Upon arriving to Chicago we went over to Ron’s (from Hi-Line films) cousin’s apartment. Conveniently, Ron did not have the keys so he had to hop a barbed wire fence surrounding the building to get inside. Later that night we headed over to Ron’s friends place, which he rented for band rehearsal. This place happened to be the original Nestle Chocolate Factory. The building was extremely old and worn down. The inside resembled a frat house in the ghetto. There were tons of old pee smelling rooms where different people stayed and each room was hosting their own party. Our room happened to be a music party (go figure). After about 9 flights of stairs with all of our equipment we managed to have band rehearsal and test the Presonus mixer (which happens to work btw J). We capped off the night at some gyro shop down town. Boy, were the people there classy “Dam bitch, you gotta fat ass!” Bedtime at 4:30am; another late night…
