'Twas a great weekend at Echo Summit, in the mountains above Sacramento. Hadn't played music with my Elixir band mates since June (our longest break in the last 8 years!), so it was particularly satisfying to be on stage remembering how much fun I have with them.

Took the red-eye at 11 pm last night, and arrived in Charlotte, NC at 6 am - where I am right now, waiting for my last leg to Boston. Then there's another 3 hours or so in transit before landing back in Quechee. But then, I'll be HOME. Yes.

California dancer friends, thank you for your kindness. Always a pleasure to call dances for you! #fbfeed

On my way home after calling dances in Arkansas for the first time. My 41st state (I think, though my memory may be failing me at the moment...15 years of gigs will do that to you). Was a fun weekend, but I'm really happy to be heading home to my family!

Maivish definitely made an impression. 'Cause, you know, they're awesome. #fbfeed
