John and Sandy's RV Adventure Journal

Tag Archive: Chicago Sandy

Charleston SC

This morning is dry but cool. Only 64 degrees. Our park has a 9 hole Frisbee/Disc Golf Course. Some of it is by a small lake. We saw some large cranes and herons. We hung around our rv and did some reading. Tonight we headed back to Parson Jacks for open mic. Chris is the host and we met Bob and Jake. Chicago Sandy got to play a couple songs with Jake on vocals and guitar, Bob on bass and another person on beatbox.

Jupiter – Jonathon Edwards St Park

Today we headed to Hobe Sound Natl Wildlife Refuge. After going through the nature center we took a 1 mile hike on the scrub trail. It winds around and then down to the intercoastal. John needs more hiking. So I dropped him at the tracks and he hiked 5 miles back to our campsite on the old Dixie Hwy trail.

Now we regrouped and later headed to the Double Roads Tavern. They have an acoustic open mic tonight hosted by Joe Birch. It’s amazing what a small world and musician world it is. We met Pete (Bullfrog) another harp player that comes here often. After talking a couple minutes, he knows a couple of our harp friends. Stan (Sloppy) from Key West and Buzz from Antioch Il. So jammers were arriving and one walked in and I knew I knew him from somewhere. It was (Larry) Reverend Hambone that played at Keystock in 2012 when it was at Lazy Lakes, also in 2015 at Keystock Truman Waterfront and in April 2016 at a CW Colt house party.

Chicago Sandy got to play with the host Joe Birch and also sat in with another jammer playing Mary Jane’s Last Dance. There were also musicians jammin outside as well. We’ll have to return to this jam if we are ever in the area on a Monday night.

Sugarloaf – 25Apr17

Beautiful day. We took our lake walk and continued out of the park. I walked to Mangrove Mamas and John continued on to Blimp Rd. He can’t do the burned out bridge right now because he would be carried away by mosquitoes. We headed to the pool for some rays, relaxing and reading.
Now it’s time to regroup and head to Looe Key Tiki Bar for jam night. Chicago Sandy only has 1 night after tonight. There were lots of artist’s there tonight include a 12 year old girl that sang Imagine great. Mickey Foster was there taking photos. Thanks Mickey for the great pics.
