I arrived in the small town of Wilkesboro, North Carolina on Saturday morning. Wilkesboro is not the type of town you really notice or generally have any cause to stop in. In some many ways the town's 10,000 or so residents probably prefer it that way, you don't live in this kind of town if you like hearing your neighbor's TV at night.

I'm no good at thinking ahead. Normally, I don't know what I'll be doing past tomorrow afternoon. But every now and then my internal calendar kicks in and schedules me for the next big thing. This year, the next big thing is the Mile High Music Fest, Denver's first and only major music festival.

I awoke about 4 a.m. to raging winds and wicked rain. I seemed securely attached…for now. The wind was blowing so hard that my tent was beginning to lean sideways.
