A 36 Day Diary of Gig Preparation 35.5

Yes, I know that today is the thirty-sixth day, but I did my math wrong and I have no excuse.  Plus, 37 days are just not as catchy as 36.

I have a contingency plan for rain.  Since we are located at a bank with a covered drive-through, we will just setup there.  We will not be very visible from the road, but we will definitely be heard.

I went through my packing lists today and I have all of the stuff ready to go.  Now I just need to be sure I get up a 5am.
