This is an old Church right by the bar district. We went and relaxed after the show and really had some nice beers and some finger food that resembled fancy mcnuggets.
This is a lake Parker and I saw as we hiked through the woods. Netherlanderers love their hiking!

Today’s flight was a quite a tiring one- let me explain.

1st my flight to Atlanta got cancelled the night before the gig so we road tripped.

I got back to jerz filmed (drop dead twice) 2 days then drove to Ohio (hung with 4 generations of family) back then to JFK to head to Brussels.

I didn’t sleep much on the flight, in fact barely at all, we got off the plane and was surprised to see we are taking a tour bus.. like a celebrity tour bus.

We got to the hotel and had it to ourselves. Parker and I decided to take a hike in the woods and see the land. It was beautiful. It kind of reminded me of central Pennsylvania. The woods are full of trails that break off into other trails. We saw people on 4 wheelers, bikes and horses. At one moment I heard something off in the distance, a horse must of got loose and took off and it ran by us with a saddle and no one on it. I was tired and didn’t want to show off my superpowers so I let them go. There was an amazing lake with powder soft sand. There where some people camping and swimming. When we walked back a car pulled up to parker and i. It was two Dutch girls in swimsuits and they spoke to us in Dutch, I laughed and looked at parker and said two kind of movies start like this… Porno and slasher flicks, and if this is a porno I will be slashed when I get home!

It was now show time, I went and showered up then met up with our leader Mark Bogges, we loaded in the bus (I forgot to introduce you to our bus driver Rico) and went to the base Schinnen- Its an army air forces base- and it was mixed countries- I think it has of had something to do with NATO. We chowed on great lasagna and hung out waiting for the show to start. We found out the colonel who ran base was leaving soon and it was her birthday, we had allot of fun with her, Col. Sumter The show was great and we got a plaques. The gang decided to take us out to eat and drinks downtown Herlen. It was a very hip cool area.

Here is our Tour Bus- these guys carted Willy Nelson, Paul McCartney, Sinatra and Sammy around Europe.. I think this el do! 

Here we are getting a Briefing at the hotel by THE MAN- Mark Bogges
