XTU Show - June 13, 2009.

Yep, it's finally arrived, the unofficial kickoff to the summer concert season. In preparation, I am [*tear] skipping my line dance outing this evening. It will be worth it because I'll get some dancing in tomorrow at the show. Tonight, I will be hitting up the giant supermarket/everything-under-the-sun store to load up the truck.

  • Booze, liquor stores aren't open at 7:30 AM [found that out the hard way]
  • Tin foil, tongs, spatula
  • Paper plates, napkins
  • Toilet Paper, hand sanitizer
  • Camping chairs
  • ICE, Lotsa ice
  • Grill, lighter fluid, charcoal
  • Food, Veggie burgers (they don't make you sick if they're not cooked the whole way through)
  • Crappy line dance boots (cement isn't ideal for your leather soles)
  • Flip flops
  • Sunscreen
  • Blanket (for the lawn)
  • cowboy hat (drinks + impulse cowboy hat purchase = no good)
  • Jeans & sweatshirt (it gets cool when the sun goes down with sunburn & the suncreen you forgot to put on)

Junk in the truck

We had drinks over a friend's house one Saturday evening. She knocked over a glass of red wine and it went all over the white carpet... she started cleaning it up with glass cleaner [she's not even the redneck of the group] and I blurted out, "I'll be right back, I've got carpet cleaner in my truck."
They all looked at me like I was strange... Is that a weird thing to keep in the cab of my truck? What about my cowboy boots? and dance sneakers? Rollerblades? and devil horns from Halloween? I don't think so but it inspired my next poll. What do you keep in your truck (or trunk)?

From "Cab of My Truck", Dierks sings of keeping:
  • Crumpled up cans
  • a beat up bag of red man chew
  • Fix a flat
  • Jonny Cash box set
  • Half a dozen parking tickets
  • cooler keeps em iced down cold
  • Roll of duck tape
  • WD40
  • Oh, what's this? a little white tank top
I want to know what you keep in yours?

and is it strange to keep carpet cleaner in your truck?
