My Vans are dusty but still intact, after 11.79 miles today. I've walked probably 20 miles in two days. According to my super de duper pedometer I've burned about 2000 calories today, just from walking.

Anytime you wake up at Cornerstone not in a sweat, you know you're off to a good start. It was almost cool when I woke up, very pleasant in any case. No line for the shower. Not a bad start to the day.

Made it to the RMC BBQ for the 11 am hour. Might be the smallest one I can remember. We're missing Matt & Becky and Robert & Lisa and Chris and, well, everyone who didn't come who normally do.

Noon meant photographers meeting in the web trailer. Then off to my assignment, to find volunteers in action.

I grabbed my notebook and even grabbed a few quotes, and wrote a little piece on volunteers and youth groups. That should be hitting the fest website later.

Thursday night we had perfect weather for Cornerstone. I actually threw on a hoodie, and was more than comfortable.

No Apologetix sightings yet. We're on the look out for any 'getix presence, so Jerry can kick them in the nuts.

Caught a couple of bands tonight -- The Lonely Hearts and Lovedrug. Both were good shows, by tight bands. I already had the Lovedrug disc, but I picked up the Lonely Hearts CD.

My back is sore, my feet are getting tired, and I'm not sure how I'm still up and going, but I am. I don't think I'll be able to stay awake much longer. I need to grab some food to replenish myself and then back to the joys of tent life.

And to cross the 12 mile threshold for the day, before I ditch my Vans for the night.

We've been missing all of you, too. Next year, next year...

Is the Lonley Hearts cd full-length or an ep?

I'm pretty sure it was an EP. It was a CD & t-shirt for $20. Want one?
