Show Notes:
This was smack dab in the middle of a roughly 4K mile 10 day road trip, and all I can say is at was if I never departed from Alaska.

Below zero Fahrenheit temperatures with a wind chill of -40F+, the 700 mile back-n-forth drive from the Chicago area was quite a trek...to the point
of mind-numbing.

But all was well in the world when TMS hit the stage and started playing, or, it was TOTALLY worth it.

Yeh, a recording from Des Moines, IA....middle of January...etc.
