The Call Of The Open Road

trip 1

The trip across Nevada was filled with majestic vistas of the high desert, as always. We spent the night in Elko, had some great pizza at the Pizza Barn across the street from the hotel, and got ready to move on in the morning.

trip 2

Before we knew it, we were in Utah at the Bonneville Salt Flats. I was here in 2003 on my big motorcycle trip with my friend Jerry. It’s pretty exciting even in a car… others had bikes though.

trip 3

This seems like a good time to remind everyone to either see, or re-see The World’s Fastest Indian

trip 4.

Well, the call of the open road cannot be denied, so off we went. Tomorrow we make Boulder, Colorado where the eagles will gather and Hot Tuna will rise up in aspect and attribute to play four shows.

trip 5

More will be revealed…

    Best thing in the mor, since it’s a unique opportunity, after the usual proper glass of water suggested for hydrating the vintage racing engine some of us is the proprietor of, best thing is Jorma’s blog. It happened to me this morning (GMT)and I’m sure I’m not the only one, when reading abt the amazing adventures of the inspired gentleman and his 18 years old parrot across Ebbett’s Pass with “Steady As She Goes” full volume in the car. Forever I’ll have that American image in my mind, ì’ll always lough and smile and be serene with such a vision, ”The Call Of The Open Road”, just as now, just as if it was a frame by Harold Lloyd, H.L. and his musical parrot on holyday over E’s Pass whistling & bopping at the sound of “Vicksburg Stomp”. That’s life!
    Thanks Jorma for your blessed hospitality.
    And again thanks for your inox shots of your beautiful America. The reportage of my dreams.
    Always safe dive and drive all the way!

    I just picked up the new issue of Vintage Guitar magazine, and there’s a great article (with interview) about Jorma! Lots of good gear info and some insight into “Steady As She Goes”. Nice job.

    Next month, Jack gets the same treatment!
    Gotta love the folks at Vitage Guitar.
