Happy Boxing Day!

It's been two months since we last posted; Thanksgiving and Christmas have come and gone and we are finally semi-settled in with our friend from college in a rustic (with hot water, internet and heat!) cabin in Northern California. Apparently, finding a free place to live and work takes a little longer than we expected.
We have been setting up an editing suite and are happy to report that all the hard drives still contain the 250+ hours of footage that we shot over two months traveling with Blind Pilot, a feat considering the many miles that the drives traveled in the car through changing weather conditions.

Emily is pleased to have a real kitchen to cook in after four months of camping and staying in other people's houses. We hosted a small Christmas eve dinner with meatballs that would have made her Swedish great-grandmother proud. Buzz has claimed a chair in the house and spends a lot of time sleeping. She deserves it after being in the car for so long. It's been snowing here, like most areas throughout the country, and we have been enjoying long walks in the mountains, getting ourselves back into pre-sitting-in-the-car-all-the-time shape. Max found a 1976 Moto Guzzi police cruiser motorcycle and finally can fully enjoy the windy roads of California.

We hope that this holiday season was merry and bright - keep an eye out for more posts and updates as we work.

And! If you haven't heard already, congratulations to Blind Pilot for being Starbucks' "Pick of the Week" for the week of January 3. Pick up a code that week for a free song download from any Starbucks locations throughout Canada and the US.
