As the Pioneer Troubadours headed East across California the
air conditioner on the bus went out and we had to limp to Texas
under some rough conditions, however the "road warriors" did 
great and we all did the best we could to survive the problems.

Our story is also about the road, the roadies, the setup, the

breakdown, the hotel rooms, on the bus, sound checks, the

trucks, a view most never see...the DVD will take you
