  2. DAY 8-11 - Tuesday-Friday, March 27th+30th 2012
DooNanny + Possum Trot in Seale, Alabama
We spent the whole week leading up to the DooNanny building an amazing booth to sell our art in. Each morning we got up and worked on it until just before sunset. In the evenings, we hung out down by the kitchen, getting to know all the other artist who showed up early. We had community dinners and sat around a big fire pit chatting and having fun. Tuesday night was our first night hanging out with everyone. We joined in on a game of Mexican Train (an awesomely fun domino game), with Wesley and Zach, who we ended up hanging out with most of the nights. Ends up that Zach is my 2nd cousin, older brother to my uncle Butch’s daughter Maggie.We also spent a lot of our spare time at the Texas Camp, with Jack Sanders (my uncle butchies very best good friend from Austin, TX), Dan Dyer (Jacks musician friend from Austin) and Liz and David (Texans now living in West Virginia).
Wednesday night, while we were getting ready to crawl into our tent, the zipper broke beyond repair. Thankfully Zach’s friend Matt (another person we hung out with for much of our time) had shown up that day, so Zach was moving out of the camper and into the giant tee-pee. We were so much happier in the camper, especially when the rains came. It started pouring Friday afternoon, just in time for the Possum Trot. The night before the DooNanny, the Possum Trot, a weekly auction in Seale, AL, is transformed into an all night party. When we showed up late with the Texas Camp, there was live music and people dancing in the rain. I hid in the auction house until I felt a little less like a drown rat. The auction house has two rooms, the large room with bench seating where the auction is held, and the gallery room. Most of the items in the gallery are Butch’s art, others are found items, like arrow heads and bones, the rest is vintage furniture.
Each year, my uncle Tommy has a big shrimp boil in the parking lot. I got to be the cashier for the night, which was great because I got to hang out with him all night, but also wonderful because we were under a canopy and I was wrapped in towels keeping as dry as possible. For $10, you got a large plate of shrimp, sausage, corn and potatoes, SUPER YUM. -misha

  3. DAY 1 - Tuesday March 20th, 2012 - Los Angeles, CA to Tuscon, AZ

    Most of our day Tuesday was spent driving the 8 hours to the Saguaro National Park in Tuscon, so we didn’t have much time to take any pics. Here are a few from my iphone camera (shakeit photo app).  -misha
