“14 years of writing, giging, burning up the roads into the early morning, being rich, being broke, having plenty, and having nothing, married for thirteen years and moving 10 times...to tell the stories of this crazy journey.... and we wouldn't change a minute or a single breath of the journey to HERE.”
