Lindi Ortega documented her long trek from Toronto to Kansas City for the first night of her tour with Kevin Costner. The Canadian singer songwriter also discussed the long days on the road between gigs on her blog at MySpace (@lindimusic), writing:
I love the road. I love passing little tiny towns that sit in between long stretches of highway. I love looking at the houses, my favorite houses are the ones that look so run down that that they should be demolished, yet.. someone lives there and proudly waves their American flag on their porch and must get heaps of joy from the trampoline in the yard. There’s often a rusty pick up truck in the driveway with weeds growing wildly out of the hood. These are the houses with character, and I ponder the stories they could tell.
