What a weekend.

Well, let me tell you guys that we had one of the strangest weekends in the history of stellar kart. Here's what happened...

First, we drove to Prescott, AZ to play at a camp and we had an amazing time. The kids there were so great and it was a perfect night until we drove home. Sharon and I took the van home with Brian while Cody drove with his mom, fiancee and Jordan and his girlfriend in Cody's mom's Ford Excursion. Sharon and I were already home when we got a call from Cody at 4:30 in the morning. Apparently, right after they left the campground, a drunk driver came around the corner of the two-lane road in the wrong lane and was heading straight for Cody. Cody swerved and made the drunk driver miss the truck, but he slammed into the trailer ripping off the left wheel and fender. Then, the drunk driver ran head on into the truck behind Cody going about 50 mph and totalled both vehicles. Amazingly, none of our crew got hurt, but all the other people involved in the accident went to the hospital. Our trailer had a broken axle and a destroyed wheel so it had to be towed back to Phoenix. It was so weird, but there were some serious angels helping us out that night.

So that was Thursday. (well, friday morning)

Then there was Sunday.

We were planning to leave at 10am to go to Riverside, CA to play at Harvest Christian Fellowship that night. We were planning to get there at 3pm for our sound check, the service started at 6pm and we were supposed to play around 6:40pm. haha. So we had to use Cody's dad's trailer since ours was still out of commission and we went to hook it up at 10am and the lights didn't work. So it took about an hour and a half to get the lights to work, then we were on the road.
So we were cruising along the freeway in the california desert on I-10 when a hurricane hits us. Traffic slowed to about 20 mph and the wind was blowing in our face at about 50 mph with about 2 inches of water flowing across the freeway.
Then we had to get gas and the gas station was packed with a line of 50 cars so that stop took an hour.
We finally got back out on the road and were going to make it in time to get set up and sound checked before the service started. Then traffic stopped AGAIN. We waited another hour stopped on the freeway until the cops cleared a huge accident and we could finally move again. By this time it was 5pm and we still had 80 miles to go.
We were praying that we would make it on time and we pulled in to the church at 6:30pm. We walked in to the back room, rolled our amps on stage and started playing at 6:37pm. We didn't sound check, we didn't even line check and just put our fate in the sound guys' hands and they came through. Our show went great and it was a miracle that we even made it. Wow.

So now Cody is fixing the trailer and we head out to Spirit West Coast tomorrow night. We are tired, but we can't wait to play at Spirit West Coast and Creation West. See you there!
