In fact, it's really not that different from Oregon: Portland is full of people that recycle and bike to work, but if you go to any of the logging or farming towns, you mostly find the other end of the political spectrum. I came to the south expecting to find the stereotypes I'd heard about, and that was still my impression after the first trip, but now I'm thinking that was mostly confirmation bias. It's not that different after all.
We're headed back to Portland to record some music, so the tour is over. I might post again on how that goes, but right now, it looks like we'll be ridiculously busy. So long for now.
