It's Wy-in' Time Again

Took a short weekend trip to Fresno, California for a one-off with Wynonna at the Chuckchansi Casino in Coarsegold, CA. All flights were full, but I luckily got aisle seats on all of them, and unexplicably bumped into First Class on the Fresno to Dallas flight, which was great.

The band had not done any shows in this particular configuration for many months, but they sounded like they were on the last day of a long tour... nice.

We stayed in nearby Bass Lake, CA. It is an old school resort used in the John Candy movie "The Great Outdoors". Very cool knotty pine cabins, complete with a kitchen and a Weber grill on the deck. I bought some brats at the market and cooked up a batch for our poker game.

In an effort to get everyone home for New Year's Eve, we had to get up at 3:00 a.m. (after getting back from the venue at around 11:30) to catch our 6:30 flight to Dallas and on to Nashville. I caught about three hours sleep in the cabin, then hopped on a bus for an hour to go to Fresno, then waited two hours for the flight out. The First Class bump was a blessing, I fell asleep before we took off and woke up to find out we were in the air already...that's an odd feeling.
