I feel like titling this article something similar to "what a long strange trip it's been," but I used that one after rescuing a pitbull and getting stuck for hours by an avalanche driving home from CES in January. This trip was like a rollercoaster, full of thrills, sadness, and scariness, and madness. I promise to mention dCS, Capitol Studios, Frank Sinatra, Shelby Lynne, Al Schmitt, Tom Petty, getting all my stuff stolen, and not being happy about it. Here we go. Where to begin?
